Here are some other types of rocks and minerals that can be found in the area.

     The cliffs that line the beach are mostly made up of serpentine, another green mineral that in its best form crystallizes in a fibrous manner, and appears to have a bunch of ridges.   Also found in the area, more so at Willow Creek, is jasper.  Quartz crystals are rumored to have been found there as well, and I've heard that trace amounts of gold can be found in the creeks and streams up in the forests and hills.
