We carry hundreds of quality mineral specimens for any range of mineral collecting interests, from the beginning mineral collector to the advanced mineral collector.UC Minerals is really a company called Uniquely Crystalline, I just liked the name UC Minerals better than my current name because it better describes what my web page is all about…You see minerals. I have been an avid collector for about fifteen years now, and have had this company for the last 11 years. Over the years, I have built up quite an inventory of specimens from around the world. I have specimens ranging from exceptional, one-of-a-kind, specimens for the collector to reference pieces for the beginning collector. If you have any particular interests, just drop me a line and let me know. If I do not have an item in stock, it is very likely that I can find it for you.

Featured Item: Zoisite var. Tanzanite crystal
Location: Merelani Hills, Tanzania
Size: 3.6 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm / 28.3 grams
Item #: 1R2015
Comments: Superb Tanzanite crystal complete with an attractive mountainous termination, with Diopside and Graphite in association! Large and lustrous, this is a killer specimen for sure. From the one and only location for Tanzanite in the world! First discovered by a farmer and introduced in the market back in 1967, Tanzanite has risen to one of the most popular and valuable stones of our time. Grab as many as you can whenever you can, for once the mines dry out, Tanzanite prices will skyrocket! Don’t miss out! Solid color, though with some damage that does not detract from the quality and value of the piece. Weighing at 141 carats, the price is at less than $8 a carat! Crazy!
Featured Item: SPHENE, ADULARIA
Location: Eiskoegele mountain, Amer-valley, Salzburg, Austria
Size: 7,5 x 7 x 5 cm
Item #: (531)
Comments: I obtained this specimen from a local dealer in Austria. I saw it in his display and was facinated from the first second! It is different from others as it’s bizzare grown and developed as a floater. The Sphene is beautiful, sharp crystallized with very good luster and an intersive green color. The max. size is 1,7 cm. The matrix consists of crystallized Adularia with a max. size of more than 3 cm. The Adularia is partly covered by dark green Chlorite, which gives an additional contrast and higher aesthetics.

If you enjoy fine, aesthetic crystallized minerals and especially if you have an interest in the exciting new discoveries in Chinese minerals, this is the right place! We travel extensively searching for fine minerals, unknown localities, and seek new, rare, exotic and? well-arranged? examples of the mineral kingdom. We will be adding frequent updates, minerals for sale, breaking news and try to provide accurate details regarding locations, analysis and other mineralogical topics. We welcome your comments, ideas and contributions!
Our stock for sale is carefully selected, unconditionally guaranteed, and we feel represents exceptional value in terms of quality and price. As China has become a major source of the very best examples ever found for many species (and at reasonable prices for most collectors) we have made this fantastic source our specialty. We do also deal in and seek minerals from other world locales (especially South America). Please do contact us with your needs, our current stock exceeds 2,000 pieces and only a small percentage is on this site or goes to shows. We take pride in finding great stuff for collectors who appreciate minerals with molecules (and atoms, unit cells etc) that are well arranged!
Featured Item: Cerussite- gem clear twins
Location: Kombat Mine, Kombat, Grootfontein District,Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Size: 5.3 x 3.2 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
Item #: A-26-009
Comments: A killer gem clear twinned cluster of glasslike crystals with fine cognac color. From the legendary finds in 1969-72 at Kombat that are now considered the finest gem Cerussite ever. This has several strong impact display angles, and the transparency in person is striking. A small attached reticulated cluster adds a little contrast and some faces show a cats eye effect in strong lighting. Nearly all fine facet grade but it would be a crime to cut these. Good Kombat twins are rare to find and treasured by their owners.

Size: 5.8 x 5.0 x 3.9 cm / 2.3 x 2 x 1.5 in
Item #: S/1298

Minerals for the advanced collector.
Featured Item: Morganite
Location: Conselheiro Pena, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Size: 2 1/4″ wide x 2 1/2″ tall
Comments: Morganite is one of the most difficult of all the Beryl’s to find in fine specimens. This superb Morganite crystal has the form, color, gemminess, and matrix, nothing more you could ask for. This example has often been called the most perfect and the defining example for Morganite. The Morganite crystal sits up showing off every crystal face. So many Morganite specimens lack this important aspect, most of them merely show half of a crystal, or less. This Morganite has outstanding clarity, beautiful pastel pinkish color, glassy luster and a splendid white matrix. Only two or three areas of the world produce world class examples, Afghanistan, Brazil and sometimes California. From all of these localities put together I have only seen a handful of truly great Morganites.
