Agate are beautiful translucent stones that come in a variety of different colors. Clear, white, grey, amber, orange, and even dark red and purple agates can be found if you know where to look. These natural treasures can be found all across the beaches of Western Washington.
This book takes a look at my favorite beaches for agate hunting along the Pacific Coast and Puget Sound. You'll also learn about the best places to find jaspers, marine fossils, sea glass, shells, sand dollars and other fun beach treasures. We'll even teach you how to polish your beach stones in a rock tumbler to shine them up and bring out their natural beauty.
Safety advice, tips and tricks, dozens of color photos and detailed site maps will guide you on the hunt. From the solo adventurer to the family looking to make some memories, this book will get you started on your next rockhounding adventure.
