YupRocks.com is dedicated to providing enjoyable and educational rock and mineral pictures, fossil pictures, and earthquake pictures. Mineral pictures range from the basic rock types to crystals and gem stones, and are displayed for educational purposes (mineral identification) as well as for aesthetic beauty. Our pictures of fossils are mostly displayed adjacent to some type of scale, and information is presented on their locality and fossil type. The earthquake pictures presented on YupRocks are from famous events in history and vary from black and white to color photography. This website provides pictures for college students (particularly introductory geology students), High School and earlier Earth Science education, and aesthetic value.
