Hey, this stone fluoresces, dontcha know!

 

Yooperlite is a most awesome and unique variety of fluorescent syenite rock found primarily in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. "Yooper" is a term for the awesome residents of the Upper Peninsula, and "lite" refers to its fluorescent properties. It gained popularity after being discovered by Erik Rintamaki in 2017.

 

What sets Yooperlite apart is its ability to glow under ultraviolet (UV) light, emitting a vibrant yellowish-green glow that is captivating to behold! This phenomenon occurs due to the presence of the mineral sodalite within the rock, which fluoresces when exposed to UV light.

 

Beyond its mesmerizing glow, Yooperlite is also cherished for its natural beauty, often displaying a variety of colors and textures in daylight. It is commonly used for lapidary purposes, such as jewelry making and decorative crafts.

 

Metaphysically, Yooperlite is associated with energy, vitality, and curiosity. Its ability to fluoresce UV light symbolizes the awakening of inner light and awareness. Associated with the third eye chakra, it enhances spiritual insight and exploration. Believed to cleanse negative energies, it fosters a connection to nature and renewal.
