Description: Yooperlite is a rare variety of Syenite, an igneous rock rich in feldspar minerals with a similar coarse-grained composition to granite. Unlike other Syenite rocks, Yooperlites contain large grains of highly UV reactive sodalite. Under normal light, Yooperlite looks like a typical gray or speckled rock. However, when exposed to UV light, the Sodalite grains within Yooperlite rocks emit a bright orange or yellow glow, creating a unique and dramatic display of ember-like speckles throughout the specimen.

Yooperlites are found primarily in Michigan, particularly along the shores of Lake Superior. Hunting for Yooperlites involves using a UV flashlight to scan the lakeshore in the darkness of the evening or early morning, hoping to catch the glowing orange fluorescence of a specimen. The term "Yooperlite" is derived from the term "Yooper," a nickname for residents of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Yooperlite is believed to stimulate the Third Eye Chakra, enhancing intuition, inner wisdom, and mental clarity. It may aid in developing psychic abilities and fostering a deeper understanding of oneself and the universe. By resonating with the Throat Chakra, Yooperlite is thought to enhance communication skills, allowing for clearer and more effective self-expression. It can help in speaking one’s truth and expressing thoughts and feelings with confidence and clarity.
