Pictures of Minerals and Rocks
The Mineral Mimetite

Mineral Gallery
Minerals are listed in alphabetical order by name. Clicking on the mineral name leads to a thumbnail page that displays the pictures gallery for that particular mineral. Clicking on a mineral picture thumbnail will greatly enlarge the photograph (high resolution) and expose much more detail about the appearance and quality of the specimen, as well as revealing other associated minerals.
There are roughly 600 mineral pictures on the YupRocks website, with plenty more on the way. Below each full sized picture, mineral information is provided which details the locality of the specimen (i.e., where it was collected), accompanying minerals (linked to their respective galleries on the YupRocks site in case you want to jump around a bit), from whose collection it came, and the photographer.

Please note that super high resolution versions of nearly all mineral photos are available by request, and that limited or full copyrighted use is granted for free or fee, depending on use. YupRocks mineral photography has been featured within the SuperGraphics section of Uhaul.com, published in multiple college level science textbooks, and has been used in an assortment of online publications since 2003. So if you would like to use any mineral imagery in publications, reports, homework assignments, blogs, websites, or have another idea for use, please feel free to contact us to secure written permission.

Rock Pictures

Each set of rock pictures is listed alphabetically by the common name of the rock. Clicking on the rock name will lead to a thumbnail page that displays all available photographs for that particular rock.

I dedicate most of my time photographing minerals, so pickings will be slim in the rock section for a long time to come.

Fortification Agates
Water Line Agates
Agates in Petrified Wood
Thunderegg Agates
Banded Iron Formation
Intraformational Conglomerate
