About Fordite: This man made material tells a story about American automotive history. In the 1920’s auto manufacturers began painting car bodies using a hand spraying technique, the paint was repeatedly hardened in ovens in which the vehicles went to cure the paint. Eventually the accumulation of layers and layers of paint build up had to be removed. The workers  salvaged the paint, someone thought to cut and polish it to reveal these beautiful and vivid colourful layers for jewellers like myself to use!

This Fordite cabochon has been hand cut from the paint processed at Kenworth custom trucks in Chillicothe, Ohio, USA. Fordite is also known as Motor Agate and mimics natural agate but is not an actual gemstone. The inspiration for the name came about in the 1940’s  and was first collected from Ford Motor Company in Michigan
