Nature’s Picks is a small local business with a big variety of inventory. On the shop shelves you can find local minerals, mine specimens, Lake Superior Agates, Lake Superior Concretions, “Yooperlites” [Syenite Sodalite], and minerals from further afield. Rocks and minerals with true character! You can also buy high-quality UV flashlights at the shop and do your own “Yooperlite” hunting on the nearby Lake Superior shoreline, or find a “Yooperlite” in the shop that speaks to your own interest [sold in both natural and polished condition–the latter for jewelry making]. Stop in and talk to proprietor John Heikkinen. John grew up in the area and worked in the mines during their active years. His passion continues for sharing his knowledge of rocks, minerals, and local history!
