Spectacular Large Agates Found on the Oregon Coast!

Nice finds by Steve and Lisa.
Yesterday we had a couple of beachcombing guest bringing in their trophy finds. These spectacular large agates were found on the Central Oregon Coast by 2 lucky Lincoln Co. residents.  Lisa of Newport found the top sard agate measuring 8" and weighing in at over 11 pounds. Steve of north county found the lower two little beauties  of fancy agate weighing in at almost ½ lb. and the larger one over 1¼ pounds. Congratulations to both of you on your spectacular large finds.
