Colied Fordite Rattlesnake Fetish

Item #
$ 239.99

Very cool coiled rattlesnake(his rattle is on the bottom) Hand Carved from a colorful specimen of Fordite with jet inlaid eyes. Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor agate is old automotive paint which has hardened sufficiently to be cut and polished. It was formed from the build-up of layers of enamel paint slag on tracks and skids on which cars were hand spray-painted (now an automated process), which have been baked numerous times. Enterprising workers who recognized their potential value chipped off these waste products and saved them to be turned into jewelry or Zuni fetishes. Snakes symbolize power, life force, sexual potency, transmutation, death and rebirth. Buy this awesome snake now and experience the pleasure of owning a Zuni snake fetish crafted from Fordite. Signed B Yatsattie. 1 5/8" deep- 1 1/2" wide-5/8" tall. 100% money-back satisfaction guarantee.
