Fordite Bear Fetish

Item #
$ 109.99

Very colorful bear fetish Hand Carved from a lovely specimen of fordite by master Zuni carver Brian Yatsattie. 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 ( a now 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 later. Order this Stellar bear now and enjoy! 1 5/8" long- 7/8" tall- 1/2" thick. 100% money back satisfaction guarantee.
