Fun fact: I studied native freshwater mussels as part of my undergraduate degree from @lakestateu. Now when I’m out fishing or by the water I can’t help but look for them #puremichigan #optoutside #upperpeninsula #freshwatermussels #lssu

lots of snow last winter means lots of high water in the rivers this spring. Out at Morgan Falls there is usually an island at the base of the falls, but now there are many small islands as the river has spilled over it.

Yooperlites!! Erik Rintamaki from the Eastern Upper Peninsula was the first to discover and name these intriguing stones in 2017. He made his discovery while agate hunting with a UV light. Since Erik's discovery other people have been discovering Yooperlites through out the Lake Superior basin, and as far South as Chicago and Port Huron, thanks to the glaciers 10,000 years ago. 
But, WHAT ARE THEY? 
Short answer they are a type of stone known as a syenite, or a coarse-grainedgray igneous rock, mixed with sodalite. The sodalite is what glows under black light. 
Interested in hunting for your own Yooperlites? Locally here in the Keweenaw any of the rocky beaches can hold Yooperlites, with beaches such as Agate Beach, and Calumet Waterworks being two of the local favorites. All you need is a UV flashlight, nighttime, and bug spray. Bug spray is a must!! We have the Convoy S2 365nm flash light with rechargeable batteries available for $49.95. 
We also have a smaller 12 led light that runs on standard AA batteries for $11.95.
BUT if you are unsuccessful in your hunts we have stones available in all prices from $3.00 up to $100.00
