  • Michigan man discovers glowing, florescent rocks called "Yooperlites". Erik Rintamaki discovered a rock that glows under an ultraviolet light made of a mineral never seen before in Michigan. Without knowing what they were or why the rocks glowed, he named them “Yooperlites”. Rintamaki says it all started in 2017 when he went out on a beach in Lake Superior with a UV light and discovered tons of these glowing rocks. To the naked eye, they look like gray rocks, but under the UV light, the mineral composite makes the rocks glow. #science #stone #uv #lakesuperior #michigan Video source: Yooperlites (Facebook) - Via @world_of_engineering https://scontent-frx5-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/3b4a49e170212558b4db8130e06e614b/5BEFB0B2/t51.2885-15/e15/40612909_490768938058564_7378434652205896637_n.jpg earthmood
