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.


Forged Carbon fiber (aka Forged Composites) products are made through a process where chopped carbon fibers are put into a compression mold and infused with resin. The process allows for more complex shapes using carbon fiber. The final product has a unique appearance that looks like marbled carbon fiber. 


Dr. Paolo Feraboli invented the technology for what would be coined forged carbon aka forged composites by Lamborghini. It was even further developed by Dr. Paolo Feraboli, Callaway and Lamborghini.


Callaway came out with the Diablo Octane driver and Lamborghini used the Sesto Elemento to showcase their use of forged carbon. Ever since the release of the concept, Lamborghini has been using forged carbon in more and more of its mainstream vehicles, such as in the Huracán Performante.
