Geo 730: May 13, Day 499: Complete BS

We left Coos Bay, and drove about half an hour south to Bandon, Oregon, where we had breakfast. I don't remember the name of the restaurant, but my omelette was awesome. Afterwards we went and checked out Bandon's famous BS jetty- blueschist, that is. Spectacularly coarse-grained, the mineral grains are large enough to identify, mostly, though I don't recall enough of the mineralogy of this metamorphic suite to be very confident. In this shot, though, pyrite, normally considered an accessory mineral, is surprisingly abundant. The lens cap is 52 mm in diameter.
