Welcome to my site! UCMINERALS.COM offers mineral specimens for all ranges of collecting interests. 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: Amethyst crystals
Location: Las Vigas, Veracruz, Mexico
Size: 2.5 x .8 x .6 cm – 3g
Item #: 16ZZ2015
Comments: Three sharp Amethyst crystals with good luster and a nice, delicately hue indicative of the locality. The middle one is a cute cluster in a ‘Y’ shape! All perfect for wraps or as TN specimens!. Quite appealing, from the famous Veracruz locality in Mexico. Better in person!
Featured Item: DIOPTASE
Location: Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Size: 5,0 x 4,3 x 3 cm
Item #: (407)
Comments: A large – 16mm across – main crystal exposed in the center of small matrix. Unfortunately Dioptase is horrible to photograph, so I really have to note, that luster and color is much better in person. This crystal is razor sharp terminated, lustrous and gemmy as good as it could be. The color is deep and intense green, that´s best quality. The assemble is well balanced and very aesthetic. In this quality and such aesthetic it is hard to obtain. No significant damages to report.
Featured Item: ZOISITE VAR. TANZANITE
Location: Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mts, Arusha Region, Tanzania
Size: 9.0 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm (small-cabinet)
Item #: 1113601
Comments: Good large tanzanite crystals are seldom seen available on the market. Good large groupings of tanzanite are even more rare. This is an excellent grouping of terminated deep purplish to blue glassy tanzanite crystals, the largest measuring 7.2 cm in length. Complete all around and very clean of damage. Some of the crystal areas are translucent, some show areas of transparency. Measures 9.0 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm in size overall. This is an outstanding large example for this gem species! Ex Dawn and Jim Minette collection WW295. Previous labels showing that the specimen was in the special exhibit of the 2002 East Coast gem and mineral show, as well as a label from the recent special displays at the Munich mineral show 2017. Ex Dawn & James Minette collection.

Featured Item: Dravite- Classic locale
Location: Gouverneur, St. Lawrence County, New York, United States
Size: 4.3 x 3.8 x 2.2 CM (miniature)
Item #: 118-AX-30-071
Comments: A stunning classic Dravite specimen with honey brown lustrous crystals nicely exposed on matrix. Ex Carter Rich and Bill Hladysz, this is in remarkable condition, with only contacts on the back and one side but no damage at all. These old Gouverneur specimens (St Lawrence County, NY) rarely have such sharp form, warm color and strong esthetics.
Location: Merelani Hill | Umba Valley | Arusha | Tanzania
Size: 4.0 x 4.8 x 2.8 cm / 1.6 x 1.9 x 1.1 in (miniature)
Item #: S-E/0104
Comments: Wonderful, partly transparent, blue to brownish, highly lustrous tabular tanzanite crystals up to 2.5 cm high on matrix from the type locality Merelani Hill, Arusha, Tanzania, associated with lustrous, golden metallic, complex pyrite crystals. The tanzanite crystals are quite sharp, with only very negligible softness on some of the edges, and what is most important, untreated and still showing blue color. Pieces like this one, with untreated blue tanzanite crystals on matrix have really been rare and therefore this is a real small jewel for any collector of gemstone crystals and high quality aesthetic minerals.
Minerals for the advanced collector.
