Fordite (Corvette) Pendant

Fordite (Corvette) Pendant

Fordite, also known as Motor- agate, comes in bright colors and psychedelic swirls, and are often crafted into eye-catching jewelry. But fordite is not a gemstone, rather it is dried paint that built up, layer upon layer, in factories that painted automobiles long ago. Especially in Detroit, & Ford Dagenham and hence the name. Before painting cars became an automated process, they were spray-painted by hand
