Who can explain how this material is actually made?

Well, this kind of looks like "end of day" which means, at the end of the day the manufacturer would take left over celluloid pellets and dump them all into a hopper to melt and extrude as a one of a kind "end of the day dump all the leftovers into the bin" pattern. I see a multitude of colors, patterns and shapes.
Somewhere among my pen books I think I read how this is made, from poured sheets, dried, cured, sliced into rods and sheets sold to pen makers to turn on lathes who somehow by magic turn this into fountain pens and pencils. Oh Yes! I just recalled, it was one of the new c2000's Limited Edition Parker Duofolds using a beautiful pearlescent material of actual ground pearls....for the Black and Pearl Duofold.
