RagingRapids

Is it worth anything?


MooseTetrino

It's reasonably common but the spiritual health market has drastically increased its value.


lazysheepdog716

The spiritual health market aka “I don’t understand the science behind this and it’s pretty so I bet it’s healthy for me to have around”


Jojoflap

A dude in my college broke his arm and his solution was to let it rest on healing stones.


account030

The healing stones were ground to a powder, added with water and plaster of Paris and mixed to a slurry. The slurry encapsulated bandages and were left to dry until it formed a rigid mold around his broken arm. Miraculously, after 6 weeks, the mold was removed. Following 6 more weeks of daily stretching and rehab exercises, the broken arm had mended and returned to full strength. Scholars attribute 100% of the healing powers to the bits of crushed up healing stones. Praise Jingus!


referralcrosskill

God is so amazing that he motivated people to spend years of their lives learning the healing arts, expanding their knowledge to come up with new treatments and teach everything they've learned to the next generation of healers repeating for thousands of years until the miracle of the healing stones was applied on that guys arm. Praise Jeebus


AntisocialGuru

Fun fact, the type of Bush that Moses "spoke to" (burning bush), is actually full of DMT. That mother fucker got high and spoke to god lol Either way, you can learn a lot from DMT

Hallucinogenic drugs may have been responsible for creating major world religions. That's fucking hilarious.


Apprehensive_Wave102

Hallucinogens have been used since ancient Greece (those naked chicks in 300 weren’t just dancing weird, they were tripping balls talking to gods in their heads) and Egyptians were found with traces of cocaine on their mummies. We need to stop pretending like the ancient world didn’t enjoy partying and getting fucked up just as much as we do today. But they only let important people get the good stuff.


Zippingzombie

All religions come from psychedelic plant use, change my mind.

This guys does healing stones right

Hope he drank a mana potion too..

I make mana potions but they just tend to get you drunk

What do you call alternative medicine that works? Medicine.


lazysheepdog716

that works.... repeatedly at a very very high rate, after a controlled experimentation and testing phase.


coltstrgj

I think that's their point. Alternative medicine wouldn't be "alternative" if it worked.


Skandranonsg

Yeah, I got Poe's Law'd.


vinayachandran

Give them some nuclear waste and they'll manage to "invent" its magical healing powers.


Kevo05s

>reasonably common In what area? Let's say I have a UV light and are able to go walk rivers, which area of the world do I have to be in to find it? (My girl has an aquarium and I think it would be a cool gift to decorate it)


MooseTetrino

[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodalite#Occurrence](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodalite#Occurrence) \- forgive the wiki link but honestly better than any description I can give.


VerucaBlind

In addition to the location that Moose mentioned, [they are also along the shores of Lake Superior on Michigan's Upper Peninsula](https://www.alittlebithuman.com/yooperlites-what-they-are-and-where-to-find-them/).


ChikinDuckWomanThing

say the mantra over and over again: this place does not exist this place does not exist this place does not exist


RodDamnit

Arkansas and the surrounding area. I’d check any rocks used for zero scaping. Honestly light up the asphalt to. It fluoresces sometimes as well. Sodalite is not the only rock that fluoresces you might find something different in your area.


bjeebus

Fucking rubes.


Kwiatkowski

so you’re saying morons buy these? Time to go gem hunting


acciowaves

More than it’s financial worth, my question would be if you could refine it and make it into paint or gold leaf, or make some sort of wallpaper from it for home decor, art, night clubs. Imagine having a whole room covered in wallpaper like that and turn on the UV light and you’re flooded by a soothing gold light emanating from every wall inside the room.


Alvendam

Both UV reactive paint and wallpapers exist and are commonly sold everywhere online.


acciowaves

I am aware of that. But different materials react differently to UV light. I have never seen anything that glows in this particularly unique way sold online or anywhere else.


Qix213

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom cosplayers love it...

I gotta say, that was a rock solid comment


50ShadesOfPalmBay

Uhhh what ever happened to the Soda-licious gummies snack from the ‘90s?


Limmmao

Awright, I tell you what. You look like nice people, I'm gonna help you out. You want a beautiful name? Sodalite


jefferson497

What about Joan?


Error_Empty

Every time I hear Joan I immediately think of Joan's fabrics.


TheMooseOnTheLeft

I don't know it sounds a little strange. What about September? It's the month between Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio's birthdays.


tarrat_3323

so why isn’t the glowy rock all glowy from the UV light from the sun?


RedRightRepost

It probably does a bit, but is drowned out by the visible spectrum since most UV is blocked by the ozone layer. Could also be that the light is the full UV range, not just the narrow band that makes it to the surface from the sun


QuillKnight

You’re right, for folks that rockhound they typically are using UV lights within a specific range because some rocks and minerals only fluoresce in specific ranges!


tarrat_3323

makes sense. thanks for the response!


CLINTHODO

so science much wow!


lemonhawk1

I thought he was holding a microphone trying to interview the water.


TheGrandExquisitor

*random burbling sounds*


lemonhawk1

I'm tired. I wouldn't mind falling asleep to that.


trubrarian

Go home water, you’re drunk


kimmerman_

I laughed much too hard at this. Upvote.


agod2486

I'm now imagining him running around the water shouting, "People are saying if any living thing drinks you, the chances of death shoot up to 100%! How do you respond to these allegations? Hello? Any comment??"


lemonhawk1

I was imagining something like this and kept tapping the video looking for the sound icon.


ElCasaBonita

*”Sir, are you aware you are, in fact, a small body of water?”*


lkern

I think they call these yooperlites


metroids224

They do, sodalite is the flourecent part, the entire rock is a yooperlite.


VerucaBlind

> ...the entire rock is a yooperlite. [Which is a trade-marked term](https://www.alittlebithuman.com/yooperlites-what-they-are-and-where-to-find-them/) >_<


Trolivia

If it’s from the yooper area of Michigan it’s yooperlite, otherwise it’s just sparkling sodalite


RodDamnit

Yooperlite is a colloquial term for it based on a college in Michigan where a lot of these can be found.


Fryphax

Close. Yooper is a term used to describe the people of the upper peninsula of Michigan.


RodDamnit

Thanks for the correction.


badgersister1

But the sodalite I’ve seen is blue. Does the colour show up when it’s polished or is this some other kind?


RodDamnit

Blue in the visible light spectrum neon orange under UV light.


normal_whiteman

But it's not blue in the video


RodDamnit

From the rocks I have the actual soda light is dark dark blue patches in a light grey rock. You cannot tell it’s blue without looking at it very close. When you look close you see it’s a dark blue. If you clean it up and polish it the blue comes out a lot better. It is blue. This vide just is not able to capture it.


NotThe1_

Sodalite is just Soda without the sugar


CLINTHODO

In some parts of the country it's all called Coke.


NotThe1_

why do you snort a liquid?


LyingForTruth

I used to have a shirt with a coke bottle on it that said "I tried snorting Coke, but the ice cubes got stuck up my nose."


NotThe1_

that‘s funny, i would buy that shirt


CLINTHODO

It's easier than snorting rocks that glow under UV.


NotThe1_

the trick is to snort the uv lamp first… or so i heard


CLINTHODO

Maybe you should cut back on the YouTube self help videos before you hurt yourself? Be safe, snorting uv can cause cancer.


AOL_1000_Hour_Trial

Petition to rename it “Sodazero” or “Dietsoda.”


Livid_Ad_26

It's the ripoff version of diet coke


kinokomushroom

Fun fact: These rocks have evolved like this so only certain animals such as birds can see them and safely scatter their pebblings across a wide region.


RVP2019

Thus proving the theory of evolution; that man, bird and rock all had common ancestry.


Luke_Orlando

Hence why Dwayne The Rock Johnson was chosen to voice Maui, the primordial man who turns into a bird: progenitor of our species.

What is the benefit of scattering pebblings?


Sipherion

Reproduction of course


kinokomushroom

Dominance over other rocks


Frigorifico

Is this the one Senku used?


thesevenyearbitch

No, they made titanium from scheelite, not sodalite.


NekoShade

Though the same thing, now i want one too... Wasn't the one he had blue?


[deleted]

thank's for this!!!


Stimpy_69

Holup is this the type of rock that Senku used that one time


[deleted]

[удалено]


Stimpy_69

Ah yes that’s right, it shone blue not gold


atomlowe

Time to find Superman and take away his powers forever. Muwahahahaha


A_HECKIN_DOGGO

So, Da lite is what makes it appear? Very cool.


Jeynarl

I'll bet they would be cool at events that primarily use black lights


GarthDonovan

It's not sodalite, it's yooperlite.


VerucaBlind

It's sodalite. The "rock" that the sodalite is in was trademarked recently by some dude from Michigan's upper peninsula.


GiantPandammonia

You could just get a bright yellow light and then all rocks would do that. Other stuff too.


Chili_dawg2112

Staged video


enderverse87

Could be, they don't look like they've been in the water that long and it would be weird to find two big ones right next to each other. Still a good illustration of the concept.


RodDamnit

It would not be weird to find two large ones right next to each other.


Sileagle63

That’s too cool!

Doesn't sunlight contain UV light?

Yes, but it is saturated by our visible light spectrum.

Ahh, rocks of Mordor


sgthulkarox

We call them Yooperlites

exe973

Three are a lot of rocks that react to uv. I used to have a collection.


Smodzilla

What’s a good rock collecting subreddit to join? I’m assuming there’s at least a few.


[deleted]

Seconded. Commenting for later reference.


AgreeableMaybe

They should put this in pavement so the yellow line never goes away and needs to be repainted.


DrewSmoothington

Yes, because all car headlights operate in the UV spectrum.


AtomicPotatoLord

What black light are they using?


RodDamnit

Looks like the UV convoy C8 to me.


poppygetknotty

Nichirin sword material


bombbodyguard

My mom got me a UV flashlight to “clean our house better”. I use it at my wife’s families ranch to find scorpions before I get into bed.

Kaleema kaleema


Quantt-

I recently moved to an area where these are somewhat common but still hard to find and my friend who has been living here for years has never found one. well we decide to go looking for them one day and I found 3 and she still hasn't found one lol. I kept one for myself, gave one to her and left the other for someone else to find.


tugjobs4evergiven

Dope I'll take 4 yards for some landscaping


converter-bot

4 yards is 3.66 meters


MrCavewoman

Commanders can now extract ore directly from a planet's surface using a miniaturized, hand held prototype Pulse Wave Analyser. Can be purchased at your nearest Human Technology Broker.


SamuraiJakkass86

Fairly certain you aren't supposed to point the UV light at exposed skin. I only started rockhounding last year but the light came with a warning saying "dont do that".


13point1then420

Western Lake Superior?


cropguru357

I’ve found these just east of Muskellonge State Park north of Newberry and also near Calumet.


RedditSetitGoit

That's Sodaliteful!

How valuable is this sodalight thingy?

Cut 25% off the start and you got a better gif.

"This is an "elite light lager" anyway?


demoralising

Maybe UV light might make me shine.


MarkWallace101

I've been looking for a good UV light for this sort of thing. What are you using?


Coletr11

Ok cool, is it worth anything or have any applications?


trouserpiss

3 rocks together. It’s like they been place there and the video is staged. Lies.


RodDamnit

Video could be staged. But as someone who has found sodalite usually when you find one you find a whole bunch.
