This is beach combing 101 for sharing trophies found along the Pacific Coastline. Agates, jasper, petrified wood, 15 - 20 million year old marine fossils, to zeolites and more as found on Oregon's scenic beaches! This is brought to you as a continuation of my pocket guides Agates of the Oregon Coast and/or Agates of the Pacific Coast.

This huge trophy agate was brought in to Wesley's Trading Post by Valerie from Portland Saturday May 7th. She said her husband found it sticking out of the sand and had to dig it out and they were amazed at how big it was 46.8 pounds. From a beach on the coast near an RV park. You can see some the bruising that I have described in the past as looking like fingernail indentations in the rind and exposed patches of the agate and drusy crystal – quartz looking patches so not sure what is inside.
EDITORIAL NOTE:Sorry I took so long to open the photos that Patty Bullock supplied.
