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.

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.
