Fordite, also known as Detroit Agate, or Motor Agate, is a unique “stone” material with a really interesting history. The “stones” were made years ago, by the now extinct practice of hand spray-painting cars in large factories. The over spray from the paint would build up in the painting bays, in many colorful layers. These layers were hardened repeatedly in the ovens that the car bodies went into to cure the paint.
Eventually, the paint build-up would become a problem, so it was removed. It was not till in the later years that it was discovered that it could be recycled into gorgeous stones! Sadly, the techniques that produced this stone are no longer in practice. Cars are now painted with a process that that leaves little, or no over spray. This means that The Fordite “mines” are dry, which makes this a rare commodity, so get it while you still can!
