Any idea what type of material this is made from?

I don't think it's abalone but I do think it is some sort of shell? The pieces are rather thick and very irridescent. 

 

Ideas? abalone1.jpgabal3.jpgabal2.jpg

I think they are biwa shaped cultured pearls.

I'm thinking different varieties of shells.

@gardensla    @Estates    That would be my guess also.  Definitely not abalone or any of the other suggestions.
