Panic in Detroit - Earrings
The 'stones' in these earrings are, wait for it, not stones! They are made from layers and layers of paint from the hand spraying of Ford cars and trucks from back in the 50's, 60's and 70's..Hence their name, Fordite or Motor City Agate, or Detroit Agate. They are carefully handcut into useable gem like stones. Not only are they beautiful, but they are also pretty rare!
Size - approx 40mm x 13mm
N.B Fordite is very delicate, and can be scratched or affected by perfume, lotions etc. As with all precious designer items, treat with care.
