Nice Zeolite found recently on the Oregon Coast

Pat our very talented beach comber and agate calendar photographer hauled in this spectacular zeolite.   To learn a little more about zeolite minerals check out Karen's blog explaining the difference between Prehnite and Thomsonite. Pat also found a 1¼ lb. partial carnelian agate along with many smaller agates two days ago. I have only seen one more complete zeolite like this and that was a few years ago by Linda Davis of Lincoln City.  Nice collecting there folks.
