The main picture is enlarged to show detail. See the other pictures for scale and below for detailed measurements. This listing is for a domed round fordite cabochon cut from fordite from the plant at Parkway in Toledo Ohio. This cab measures: .59 H x .29 thickness in inches or  14.9 x  7.4  mm. I cut this cab in a unique way that gives the paint bands a different look.


Fordite is recycled automotive paint sourced primarily from automotive factories. It forms in thin layers as car parts are painted on the racks that hold them in place. After hundreds of trips through the booth where the paint is sprayed then baked the excess buildup is scraped off the racks. We buy this waste paint in rough chunks and recycle it into beautiful jewelry. It?s said it takes almost a thousand layers of paint to make a one inch thick piece of fordite. The original fordite came from Ford Motors in Detroit hence the name Ford-ite. Fordite from prior to 1978 can contain lead. All of our fordite is either current or from the early 2000?s so it?s lead free.


Why buy from us? Most artists are part time and only dabble in fordite while I'm is a full time artist who specializes in cutting and polishing fordite. When you buy from us your supporting a small family business here in the USA. Our cabochons are meant for jewelers and or collectors who have an eye for quality. Our work is world class. You cannot beat our finish quality on fordite!

Our fordite is accurately represented and has been vetted by us.
