Also known as 'Detroit Agate', fordite is neither a mineral nor a rock at all. Although used in the jewellery industry, its origins are rather bizarre. It is made up of thousands of layers of car paint that were pressed on top of each other and hardened when cars were painted by hand. The paint was 'baked' and annealed several times until it encrusted on the machinery used to paint cars. Craftsmen later used the coloured material to make semi-precious stones.
The colours can also reveal when they are from: predominance of black or brown up to the 1950s, pastels and bright colours from the 1960s onwards.
Fordite helps one to adapt and accept circumstances, breaking the illusion of normalcy. It helps you to understand that being different will now be the “new normal” and it will be appreciated.
Fordite assists in flexibility and helping one to remain open to a new idea or new state of being. This adaptability allows one to make the best of the situation and help bring an end to a previously held belief. It allows one to acknowledge that you are an evolving creature that can shift and morph into whatever form you care to take on. You can break societal construct by refusing to be defined.
Especially useful for those in life career shifts. It can assist you in acknowledgement of inherent talents and attributes that until now have been hidden behind the mask you have either been coerced or had volunteered to wear. There is more to you than meets the eye.
Good for negotiating for it allows one to help others see things in a new way.
