This is a highly polished 2.0 inch Yooperlite sphere, hand made by Bob Wright.
The discovery of Yooperlites have been featured in Rock & Gem magazine as well as many articles and newscasts around the world.
This is a great premium pattern Yooperlite with great Sodalite throughout.
A Yooperlite is a Syenite rich in fluorescent Sodalite. A Syenite is a beach granite and or basalt lacking in quartz but high in Sodium. Some Yooperlites are even magnetic! They are found on the shores of the Great Lakes and other areas that glaciers deposited stones from the Canadien shield.
To see the fluorescence (glow) of this incredible sphere you will need to have a 365nm longwave uv light. With a filter is best.
In white light this sphere has an awesome hand polish.
Beautiful in both daylight and at night under UV.
Don't let this one get away!!
