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.
