This piece found by Ronnie the "Rockhunter" of Newport measures 6" x 2½" and is a most unsual specimen. The areas that appear to have been sawed are the actual damage done by the Teredo mollusk to this piece of wood.
It is late in the season, but yes treasure is still being found daily such as this beautiful large cobble of carnelian fortification agate which was found earlier this month in the Newport, Oregon area by lucky beachcomber Amie B. NOTE: Photo was taken while the specimen was still wet to better show the details.
