This is beach combing 101 for sharing trophies found along the Pacific Coastline. Agates, jasper, petrified wood, 15 - 20 million year old marine fossils, to zeolites and more as found on Oregon's scenic beaches! This is brought to you as a continuation of my pocket guides Agates of the Oregon Coast and/or Agates of the Pacific Coast.

Nice Pyritized Fossil Sea Shells Found at Newport!
These fossil shells with secondary pyrite crystals were two specimens that lucky resident Lisa found just north of Newport. The marine fossil mollusks of this area are generally about 15-20 million years old.
Editors note: Photo is about double the size of the actual specimen.
