rockstarsandroyalty My husband bought me this amazing #fordite cabochon for my birthday. I'm so excited to own a little piece of motoring history. Now I need to get it made into a pendant. 3w
  •   rockstarsandroyalty If you haven't heard of it before it's a stone formed from layers of car paint over spray back when cars were painted by hand. The layers on the floor were continuously baked and added to as more cars in the factories were painted. At some point someone realised that this waste could be cut and polished into a gorgeous stone. It's also called #detroitagate. 3w

happymedium4eco Custom Order

This is called Detroit Agate or Fordite (Ford cars). It is found in large chunks in the old (mostly) Detroit factories where cars used to be mass produced. They would go down the factory line being sprayed with different colors of paint which would build up around the edges of the building in these colorful layers. Essentially, this is car paint - harvested from the buildings and cut into cool shaped for collectors and jewelry makers!

This piece was my Mothers Day present from my partner, which I finally made into a pendant with some black copper wire. :) More information about custom orders:

markitasmakeup Got Matt a cool present today! It's called Detroit Agate or Fordite. Back when cars were hand sprayed the layers of paint would build up on racks and be knocked loose when they got too heavy. This is the result after it's been shaped and polished. #detroitagate #fordite #stone #pretty #detroit #cars #paint 2mon

  •   andreaceeque That's coool! Ps...I like your nails! @markitasmakeup 2mon
  •   markitasmakeup Thanks @andreaceeque! I love this Fordite stuff. It's supposed to be rare since they don't paint cars like that anymore. And the nail polish is called Mermaids Dream by Deborah Lippmann. 2mon

budkid The new pieces!! What is it? #detroitagate or #fordite
A little history. Back in the day when cars were normally painted with a powder coat. This is the layers of years of paint sunk into the ground. Antique and rare. Plus if you are a #car lover and #jewelry love this is for you. Yes it's #paint!
