Item details

This is a gorgeous piece of Detroit Fordite! A contemporary shape, this large cabochon has a dramatic pattern of white, red, blue, and black, with touches of silver shimmery layers. Perfect for your jewelry designs or just to add to your collection!
The last photo with the measuring tape is to give size reference, please see exact measurements below.

This cabochon measures 26mm x 14.5mm x 4.2mm

Each Fordite I cut is completely unique and one of a kind!

Fordite, also known as Detroit or Motor City Agate, is the by-product of automobile manufacturers from the now obsolete practice of hand spray-painting cars on the production line. Multiple layers of differently colored paint overspray would build up on the tracks, and eventually had to be removed when it started obstructing the tracks. Once it was removed, people noticed how aesthetically beautiful it was, and artists started begging for the material. Thus Fordite was born! People knowledgeable in classic cars can actually point to certain colors in Fordite and name the car and production year it came from. What a great way to own a piece of history!
