Oregon Coast Notes - News

SpikesAgateRingSpike of Seal Rock found this beautiful black agate earlier this year while agate hunting here on the Oregon Coast. The ring was created for him by FACETS Gem & Mineral Gallery of Newport. The ring was fabricated of Sterling Silver for him to give his lady Monica. We wish Monica many years of enjoyment from her new ring.

Spike was very pleased as the design allows the wearer to appreciate stone from the top or by the bottom through the open wire work design beneath the stone.

Shannah

Local 8 year old Savannah of Sam Case Elementary found these marine fossils while beach combing with her family yesterday. The fossils shown here were found just north of Newport and are approximately 15-20 million years old. Nice finds Savannah.

TrophyAgate

Congratulations to agate collector James of South Beach who just recently found this beautiful agate weighing in at ¼ of a pound and 2¾" long. The stone appears black with white frosting, however when illuminated with a strong light source from the bottom you can see it is a lavender cloud agate. This will make a nice addition to ones agate collection.
