Pocket Guide to Agates of the Oregon Coast
Newport

Agate Pocket GuideNEW Book by K.T. Myers and Richard L. Petrovic - This popular pocket guide to Agates of the Oregon Coast is the NEW comprehensive, easy-to-use full color illustrated guide of the what, where, when and how of information on agate, jasper, fossils and petrified wood commonly found on the Oregon Coast. This guide shows the specimens in their rough natural state and the cover shows them in all of their polished glory.

Learn about the best known varieties and new to this printing are the oversites from the previous books, the stunning uncommon colors and varieties of agate to be found that would also include the enhydro (water agates), also a special section of fossil agates, petrified woods, and fossils that may be found among the cobbles along the Oregon Coastal beaches. While many specimens are readily available, the rare and higher-quality ones are highly sought after.

During the winter, you will want to re-visit the coast to search for agates. Oregon has great public beach access to welcome those who wish to indulge! There are excellent locations for watching the waves, whales, sunsets and storm watching, the coast is a treasure trove for collecting driftwood, agates, shells and floats. Bedrock exposed from the sea at low tide creates perfect pockets for tide pooling, and beach combing, just for challenging the adventure seekers.

The Beachcombers Gem Scoop featured on the inside cover is available from FACETS Gem & Mineral Gallery, in Newport.
