Fordite (Detroit Agate) and Sterling Silver Pendant
Fordite, also known as Detroit Agate, and sterling silver pendant (chain not included). Approximate size is 1"L x 5/8"W. This specimen came from the corvette factory in Bowling Green, KY circa 2003-2005. Fordite is a manmade material that came out of the assembly lines of the Ford Motor Co. The process that created fordite is no longer in use. In the past, cars were painted using hand-operated spray guns, and the overspray adhered to the racks, which were then run through the ovens with the cars.
