About Us

We aren't just another business, we're rock enthusiasts! Rick got his start in rock and mineral collecting in the 6th grade when he was tasked with a science fair project that took him to a rock shop on Redwood Road in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The science fair project turned into a hobby, which turned into a passion--a lifetime of studying (including at the University of Utah and Montana School of Mines).  Rick came back to that same unique rock store to work and, eventually, to purchase.

Now Rick and his family run Rockpick Legend Co. Each person here has found their own specialty niche in the rock world, and we offer a complete rock experience! From our own love for rocks, minerals, and the world that has created them, to our passion for helping young and old rock hounds alike get their start into this exciting field, you can rest assured we'll be there to help you with all your rock related needs.
