Re: Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother brooch - mother of pearl?

In January 2015, our fellow poster PJ Kiser had posted a picture of Queen Elizabeth, from the same photo session of December 1936, where we could distinctively see a brilliant, reflecting overtone on the petals of the brooch: http://members2.boardhost.com/royal-jewels/msg/archive/1421481115.html
I wonder if it could be chalcedony, possibly of a pale blue shade - a stone which usually displays such a pale, translucid, iridescent shade.
I would love to see this brooch worn again too!
