UC Minerals

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.

Well-Arranged Molecules

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: Sturmanite and Brucite
Well-Arranged Molecules Featured Item

Location: N'chwaning Mine, Kalahari Fields, Kuruman, Kuruman, South Africa

Size: 14 x 6.8 x 7.6 CM (cabinet)

Item #: Alec 14-266

Comments: A exceptional cabinet sized combo specimen hat presents well these two relatively rare species. Gemmy yellow Sturmanite in flattened blade habit crystals reach 1.8 CM scattered on a sparkling matrix of micro Manganites which is also the host for the spheres of blue green to white Brucite. The Brucite has the most desirable "wet" luster and shows good color gradations across the piece. In excellent condition and quite pretty for a "rarities mix". This piece almost certainly originated at the N'Chwanning mine (perhaps the only place this combo is noted) but the labeling we have for it is not that specific.

Wilensky Minerals

Minerals for the advanced collector.
Featured Item: Azurite with Malachite

Location: Copper Queen Mine, Bisbee, Arizona

Size: 2 1/2 inches wide

ex-collection Pellman.

Comments: Bisbee Azurite is, to put it simply, as good as it gets. The species simply does not get better then this example (or this locality). Bisbee has a rich history well documented in American mining. Collectors since Roebling and Bement have coveted the best of Bisbee. The very finest pieces came out over 100 years ago and the mine completely shut down by the 1970's. This Azurite blades which form this free floating flower is such a vivid blue that it defies any particular color name. The reflections and flecks of color you see in the photo are not at first look apparent. There is a thin layer of iridescence which lies beneath the surface which, when hit with a strong light, bursts into an explosion of brilliant blue color. This effect from Bisbee is very rarely seen, only the finest examples possess it. The Azurite crystal sits upright, showing off all of its terminations, it is completely damage free, and razor sharp. Azurite at its ultimate!

Featured Item: HEMATITE

Via Mineralia

Location: Payun volcano, Mendoza, Argentina

Size: 7 x 5.5 x 4 cm

Comments: This is an exceptional specimen from one of the few known mineral locations in Argentina (makes me wondering, because the country is that big!). The specimen shows very attractive high lustrous crystals up to 5 cm in diameter! It consists of a single mayor crystal with a few smaller ones around. The specimen is damage-free and a real eye catcher. Also it's free standing and perfect to display all around. This is definitely the best one I saw from the location.
