Rick Green Owner, Founder

UC Minerals is really a company called Uniquely Crystalline, I started using the name UC Minerals when I started my first web page in 1995 (I was one of the earliest dealers on the internet and have had a website continuously since then). I also like it better than my legal business name because it better describes what my business all about…You see minerals. I have been an avid collector for about 36 years now and have had this company for the last 35 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.

Now, a little history about myself, I am a licensed Professional Geologist working for the Florida Geological Survey in Tallahassee, Florida. I have been the primary geologic mapper for the Survey for the last 27 years. If you would like to see some of my work, take a look at our STATEMAP StoryMap. My job requires that I travel frequently, so if you cannot reach me, just leave me a message and I get in touch with you as soon as possible. I travel to both Denver and Tuscon each year in order to stock up on new items from around the world. My own collecting interests tend to run towards two areas: Carbonates and Fluorites.

I treat purchasing specimens for resale in a simple manner: I look at each specimen that I buy as if it were going in my own collection. Because I tend to be very picky about things like “dings”, I think that you will be satisfied with any specimens which are ordered from UC Minerals. However, if you are dissatisfied for any reason with a purchase, just contact me and I will arrange a refund. (See the section on Ordering and Shipping for more information on my policy regarding returns.)
