Agatized Fossil Snail Shell with Water bubble!
Sue B. of Newport found this 2" wonderful agatized enhydro sea snail fossil specimen earlier this summer while beachcombing on the Oregon coast. This fossil would be about 15-20 million years old.
Photo has been enlarged to show the bubble encased within the agate.
