Another Perfect Agatized Nautilus found while beachcombing at Newport

James found this complete Fossilized Nautilus
This piece is perfectly agatized in that you can even see the chambers of the nautilus through the nacre of the shell.  This young man James of Salem Oregon, has quit the eye for finding beautiful fossils here on the Oregon Coast.

Fortification Agate
Clarice found this unique Alaskan totem art face design in a black fortification agate the size of a quarter, while agate hunting here at the Oregon Coast.  Nice find Clarice!

Doreen's trophies
Beachcomber Doreen of Roseburg, Oregon found these beauties Friday while visiting here on Oregon's central Coast.  Nice collection, with the two largest ones at the top being about 3-4" and would weigh approximately ¼ - ½ of a pound each.
