Vintage Abalone Pin Brooch Pair from Mexico Planetoids

When I found these two little pins together, I couldn't help being reminded of something interstellar. Their vibrant, luminous colors are like a snapshot of galactic gasses and their shape reminds me of a pair of small planets--the kind big enough only to be called planetoids.

The narrower pin measures 7/8" long by 1/8" wide and the oval pin measures just under 7/8" long by 3/8" long. Neither pin is marked and I'm fairly certain the metal is not sterling silver, but likely alpaca or some other metal composite. Both are in good working order and very good vintage condition.

Thanks so much for looking!
