Fordite Money Clip measuring 1" wide by 2" long. Gift Box included.

Every piece of Fordite, also known as Detroit Agate, is a unique object of
beauty. Like agate Fordite is cut and polished to reveal the swirling patterns
of colors inside. Unlike agate, Fordite comes not from the ground but from the
retired paint shops of the automotive industry. In the old style of painting
cars there was a great deal of overspray. This paint built up layer by layer
and was baked at high temps between coats. As the story goes, paint shop
workers would sometimes knock chunks of the paint buildup loose and take them
home as souvenirs. The colorful buildup was beautiful in its raw form and
turned out to be breathtaking once cut and polished, perfect for use in
jewelry. No one knows how much Fordite was saved.

All we know for sure is it looks great in our Siesta earrings, pendants,
bracelets, cuff links, key chains and rings!

Other exclusive Siesta Silver Jewelry Fordite items may be found at the
Detroit Institute of Arts Museum Shop.


All our jewelry is nickel free and marked .925 indicating sterling silver.
