Agate Hunting at Roads End in Lincoln City, Oregon

Enjoy 4 minutes of beachcombing at the surf line and around the cove during the low tide for agates on the beach at roads end with Jafravh. Her bonus footage will also include close up views of the tide pools, home to a variety of colorful sea stars and sea anemones which are groups of water dwelling, animals of the intertidal area plus a spectacular close-up of our national symbol the Bald Eagle perched on a rock out crop at the Oregon Coast!

Lucky beachcomber Frank of Toledo just picked up what appeared to be just another piece of jasper and found this complete fossilized crab on the backside of the cobble while kicking around at the beach. Nice find Frank!

Nice Pyritized Fossil Sea Shells Found at Newport!

Pyritized Sea Snail

Pyritized Sea Shells

These fossil shells with secondary pyrite crystals were two specimens that lucky resident Lisa found just north of Newport. The marine fossil mollusks of this area are generally about 15-20 million years old.

Editors note: Photo is about double the size of the actual specimen.
