This Material is from Jeep circa 2021 . Fordite, also called Motor Agate or Detroit Agate, is an entirely man made jewel created by scraping layers of the enamel paint slag that had been dripped into pools onto the metal tracks during the “old days” when Ford and other assembly line cars were spray painted by people, not robots. The pooled paint, the result of the runoff from excess paint dripping off the cars during the baking process, became solid as some rock formations. There are some lovely Mettalic colours in this one

The Fordite cabochon is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
