Dwarves' Earth Treasures Museum:
Nipomo Agates
Nipomo, California
   The farms around Nipomo, California has produced several types of agates including sagenite types. The agates are colorless to gray, often with tan to yellow sagenite inclusions. There are reports that some sites are already exhausted while other places are closed to any further collecting.  The agates with marcasite inclusions have been found there also, but I tend to avoid collecting anything with marcasite because they release sulfur in humid conditions.
