|Found during a minus tide by Marcy of Newport|

Doreen of Roseburg, Oregon found these interesting pieces June 18, while agate hunting on the Oregon coast. The long sandy piece looks like either a fulgurite, meaning thunderbolt formed in sand. If not maybe it could possibly be an Indian artifact as it has a hollow area on the small end for an arrow? The two specimens above are a couple of very interesting agates. The smallest one is an agatized snail.
|¼ - ¾ pound agates|
Congratulations to Jane, a local resident on these outstanding beach combing finds. The amber color agate at the top is a sard agate and weighed in at ¾ of a pound. The blue/blacks are excellent sized specimens for this late in the season.
