Agates abound on Oregon's Central Coast...

Sandy's agates and Scot's arrowhead..
These trophy agates were found by Sandy  beach combing here on the Oregon Coast earlier this season before the tsunami covered the beaches with sand.  These agates are all so beautiful,  the top one about 4-5",  as we call it "fang" on the far left is large and quite unusual as it is sard agate with sagenite and zeolites together.  The two white agates both have a cavity opening and feature a fortification pattern at the opening of each.

The lower right foreground is a 2" arrowhead of jasper.  More photos will follow later as I can shoot them.

Stay safe and have fun out there folks.
