Kenworth Fordite, originally, Detroit auto manufacturers would tow the cars on a rail & pallet system through the paint booths. Over time, the paint over spray would accumulate on the rails and skids, requiring the crews to remove the accumulated paint from time to time to avoid mechanical failure of the system. Some of the workers got the bright idea of taking some of this material home to cut and Polish for jewelry. And so was born Fordite! Cars are no longer painted this way and haven't been since the 80's. Fordite is a generic term that refers to any chunk of accumulated over-spray paint. All Fordite is, by definition, a recycled use product.


 Fordite helps in adjusting and being flexible with the life's circumstances. The adaptability to change is a promising characteristic of Fordite. This patterned gemstone is mostly preferred by the people that tend to see a lot of career changes and drifts. Aids in getting out and exploring the unexplored side of a person, making life worth living and loving. Helps in getting to know the hidden talent that each has. Another important property of the Fordite is that it help to increase the patience of the wearer.
