BEACHCOMBING 101: AGATES OF THE OREGON COAST
The Oregon Coast “Rock Doc” and author of the pocket guide Agates of the Oregon Coast, K T Myers, will be at the Newport 60+ Activity Center on Thursday, September 5, 2019, 2:00-3:00 p.m. She will be talking about the most desirable stones from agates to zeolites and everything in between that may be commonly found along the Pacific coastline. There will be a display to see and feel these samples up close and personal.
You are also invited to bring a sample found along the beach that you would like to be identified.
Since retiring from FACETS Gem & Mineral Gallery after 26 years in the industry, K has been sharing over 50+ years of knowledge and wrote the pocket guide Agates of the Oregon Coast and Oregon Under Foot.
