This unique and unusual substance is something you will not find in a mineral or gemstone book. Fordite is actually from a Ford auto plant.  During the 1960s, the spray paint from painting vehicles would build up on the walls of the factory. Over time this overspray paint collected and got thick on the walls, and had to be scraped or knocked off the walls to keep the plant clean. A worker at the plant thought the striped and layered material was interesting looking so he collected the pieces. These pieces sat undisturbed for a long time, until a few years ago the worker passed away, and his son, who's hobby was cutting gemstones and rocks, rediscovered the material and worked the pieces into the beautiful cabochons. These cabochons, when polished properly, allow us to see the different layers of paint that had been used to produce the cars.

Modern technology has made the painting process so there is no overspray, so this material is not available anymore. This is just an incredible material with real history!
