When is the last time that you had the chance to get away from it all?

When is the last time that you stood at the shoreline of Lake Superior, and marveled at the beauty of the Northern Lights?

When is the last time you heard the tranquil beauty of waves gently lapping at a rocky shoreline in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan?

"I've never experienced anything like this before!"


Meet Erik Rintamaki - the man that discovered Yooperlites

Erik Rintamaki is a life long rock hound from Brimley Michigan.

In 2017 he was picking the shores of Lake Superior at night using longwave UV lights, and made the discovery of a lifetime! Every rock pickers dream is to find something new, and Erik did just that.

What Erik found was later tested and verified to be Syenites rich in fluorescent Sodalite, which he branded Yooperlites. Yooperlites have now become a worldwide phenomenon with thousands of articles and news stories written about them.

Erik has been featured on many TV shows and YouTube features recently, including The Discovery Channel and The History Channel.
