Agate Geode found on the Oregon Coast

Lucky beachcomber Vicki of Newport found this ¾ pound geode that  is 2¾" long.

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!

Agates are rock'n the coast at Newport!

6 Treasures found in just 10 minutes!
Lucky beachcomber and local resident  Scott brought in 1 jasper and 5 agates  Friday to share with you.  Sorry I was not able to back lite these beauties for you to really enjoy their true translucency and colors.

Did you get to enjoy our beautiful weather this weekend?  Couldn't ask for anything better as it was better than summer, being in the 60 degree range and no wind!
