Have you heard of the fluorescent stones found along the shores of Lake Superior? Often referred to as Yooper Stone or Emberlite they are composed of UV reactive sodalite in syenite. We go and hunt for them a couple times a year along the south shore and have a whole bin of the glowing gems to cut and polish into jewelry stones. The cool thing about yooper stones is that they take no experience what so ever to find just a UV flashlight so it's a great activity for budding rock hounds or walking along with your kids. I shaped this set of earrings from a dark colored emberlite. It's important to pick stones that look good in regular light for jewelry as that's how they'll be viewed. These little stones are black speckled with gray. I cut them in our signature domed teardrop style. All sides are polished. The stones measure about 17 x 12 mm. The ear wires and jump rings that hold the stones (no glue to fail) are solid argentium sterling silver which is a premium silver perfect for ear wires as it resists tarnishing and is easy to clean.

Our stones are mirror polished and so there will be reflections in the pictures. We take pictures in direct bright light that simulates what your stone will look like in direct sunlight. Stones look very different in low or artificial light. If it's dark when you receive them you can use the flashlight feature on your smart phone to see what they will look like in daylight. If you are new to semi precious stones please understand that these stones are natural and were found or dug from the earth. These are not faceted altered or manmade stones you see in stores. Natural stones (especially agates) may have features that would be considered flaws in a faceted stone or manufactured stone. Natural stones can have internal fractures, natural holes or geode areas. If there are features we as professional lapidary artists feel may detract from a stone we do our best to describe them in the listing description and show them in the pictures.We charge based on size and quality of the stone as well as market factors. We don’t dabble in the art of stone cutting. Brian is a full time lapidary artist so if you buy from us you are buying a high quality stone made by an experienced professional artist. We are a legitimate small business licensed as an LLC in Wisconsin. Our business mission is to create happiness through our art.
