5 Pound Agate Found on the Oregon Coast
Our buddy Rascal of Tillamook Oregon, found this 5 pound agate recently on the north coast. The outside was a typical gray agate with some basalt but when cut open it exposed some exceptional color for an Oregon coast agate and was just as nice as some of the best Brazilian Agate.
Nice find Roscoe!
