100% personally beachcombed spark plug insulator. Gently cleaned and hand crafted in to a beautiful creation personally by Heidi of Pacific Patina.
These key chains are incredibly unique! They are created from an insulator piece of a WWII era military spark plug. Decades of tumbling in the ocean and on Jewel Beach corroded and stripped these spark plugs of their metal components leaving only smooth ceramic. A perfect gift for military, automotive or history fanatics!
A piece of sea glass and sea pottery has been added to this key chain and the spark plug can be identified as a Firestone M-80 type. You can also see a small "M" on the opposite side of the "M-80" labeling. This "M" was the last letter in the word "Polonium" on this spark plug.

Size: Approximately 5" from top of carabiner to bottom of key chain.
