Award- winning gemologist Richard Petrovic (Petrovic retired as of August 2011) and his partner of 30 + years Kay Myers aren't just rockhounds. In 1987 they established FACETS, (Newport, OR) Gem and Mineral Gallery. At the the time of publication they shared their knowledge daily with others.
Kay and Richard authored another best-selling pocket guide, Agates of the Oregon Coast which is widely known and enjoyed by rockhounds and beachcombers alike. Oregon Under Foot, identifies the inland materials, to complete this series of Oregon Collecting guides to be used in conjunction with the Gem Trails of Oregon.
The Oregon Gem Scoop featured on the back cover is available through Wesley's Trading Post, in Newport.
