Fordite (Also Known As Detroit agate) is automotive paint from the old way of painting cars. Before the electrostatic painting process, over-spray would accumulate on the racks that held the car pieces. Over time, this build-up needed to be removed.

One or more of the factory workers would take this material home and use it for crafting projects. One of the employees must have been into lapidary and Fordite was "discovered" This material is amazing. Lightweight, psychedelic colors with metallic sheen's. Literally hundreds of layers of paint, oven baked over and over.

The old painting processes have been discontinued and there will be no more "mining" of this material.
