The History of Fordite

Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or motor agate, is a variegated, multicolored layer of old automotive paint which has hardened and been cut into cabochons and used to make jewelry.

It is composed of numerous layers of enamel paint which have built up on the surface of vehicles over time. The oldest Fordite specimens date back to the 1920s, when cars were first being mass-produced.

Fordite was named after the Ford Motor Company, as the vast majority of specimens come from old Ford factories. It is most commonly found in shades of green, red, brown, and black, but can also be found in other colors such as blue and yellow. Fordite cabochons are typically cut in oval or teardrop shapes, and set in silver or gold jewelry settings.

While fordite is not a true gemstone, it is still highly sought-after by jewelry collectors and enthusiasts. Its unique colors and patterns make it a one-of-a-kind addition to any jewelry collection.
