Red Garnet

Garnet traces its roots to the Nile Delta in 3100 B.C., where Egyptian artisans crafted the gemstone into beads or laid them into hand-wrought jewelry..

Noah supposedly used a Garnet lantern for light as he steered the Ark at night time, so goes the famous tale. The stone was widely used by the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans primarily for jewelry though the stone was also seen as a protector of anyone wearing it.

They maintained their popularity through the Ages and were extensively used for Bohemian jewelry in the 18Th and 19th centuries; they were very fashionable in Victorian times though this was still very much the red Garnet.

Garnet is found in almost corner of the Earth, and its special color variations are region-specific.
Red garnet remains the most abundant and well-known type of this gemstone.

Red garnets are part of the pyrope family of garnets. They feature a red that can rival rubies. 


Kirinite is known as the next-generation high grade acrylic. Kirinite is extremely tough if not tougher than Corian™. It's very durable and maintenance free.




Fordite, also known as Detroit agate or Motor City agate is a manmade material that came out of the assembly lines of the Ford Motor Co.  The process that created fordite is no longer in use. Fordite is notable for the way it displays "the history of the American automotive industry," both to illustrate the changing colors of car paint as well as the transformation and disappearance of the Ford motor factories in Detroit.


In the old days, cars were painted using hand-operated spray guns, and the overspray adhered to the racks, which were then run through the ovens with the cars. Many repetitions resulted in tens or hundreds of layers of oven-hardened paint. When the buildup got in the way, it was chipped off.


They found out the Fordite could easily be shaped and polished and could be used in many artistic applications. Jewelry made from fordite is often fabulously patterned and colored.


A few of the old pieces are primarily black or brown, as most cars were painted these colors in the late 1940s. The colorful lacquers from the 1960s and the very bright acrylic colors from the late 1980s produce the more interesting showpieces. 


Each fordite piece is unique as there are no two alike. Every piece will have a different pattern/color.
