I am guessing that very few of you will be familiar with Fordite.
Fordite is a beautiful substance, but neither natural nor old.
It is actually built-up paint residue from the paint-shops at Ford car plants.
It really is the most beautiful substance, and when cut and polished it reveals the coloured layers of paint that have built up on the floors and walls of the paint shop.
I must point out that this really is a rare and sought after substance
I bought a supply a while back , and since then the supplies have almost totally dried up.
As cars are painted in a different way nowadays there will never be any Fordite once current supplies run out.
That really WILL be it!
This pendant is made with USA Fordite - from the paint shops in Detroit.
This is a cute little necklace and the Fordite cabochon has a really intricate texturing and varied colour palette
The pendant measures 2cm top to bottom
The pendant is strung from an 18 inch Sterling silver snake chain and sent in a lovely velvet lined jewellery box.
and is complete with a signed certificate of authenticity.
