Set of 4 Fordite (018)

$31.00

You will receive the exact four fordite shown.   

Weight: 4.3 grams 

Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor City agate, mimics natural agate but is man made entirely from automotive paint. Named after it's origin, the assembly line at Ford Motor Company, this sliver of color is is a byproduct of mass production. It was formed from hundreds of layers of buildup from overspray enamel paint on tracks and skids on which cars were hand spray-painted in the 1960's. This process is now automated and does not leave paint waste; making the fordite on the market today all that remains, and a collector's item.

Little pieces of history

The fordite pieces are smaller than expected but that's my own inattention to detail! I'm still very happy with them - purchased a set of 4 and plan to keep 1 and gift the others to family members so we can have them displayed in our printers boxes. The colors on the pieces are vibrant and it's cool to have a piece of something that isn't being created anymore.
