Agatized Coral

Florida designated agatized coral as the official state stone in 1976 (agatized coral is actually a fossil). Agatized coral can be found in three main locations in Florida: Tampa Bay, the Econfina river, and the Withlacoochee / Suwannee river beds.

Fossilized coral is also a state symbol of Michigan (petoskey stone).
