Agate found by Joe Cheek, just fresh out of the tumbler. Only polished enough to retain the exhisting patterns as it was found!

It's agate season on the beaches of Newport, Oregon!

It is truly agate season here on the central coast of Oregon. The tides have yielded some of the nicest trophies of beautiful agates to be seen here in years. Here is another trophy for a proud local beachcomber Joe Cheek with his 4.35 pound agate that he found in January at South Beach, of Newport, Oregon.
