Mother of Pearl Inlay

I came across the following article in my news feed and thought it may be of interest to members.

http://www.woodworkingnetwork.com/wood/components-sourcing/mother-pearl-wood-filler-gives-crevices-glowing-look?utm_source=Real_Magnet&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=keith.larrett@gmail.com&utm_content=DAILY%20BRIEF&utm_campaign=Wood%20glows%20with%20inlay

The article describes a new inlay by Imaginlay which consists of baked and crushed mother of pearl.  It looks like it could be a great option for those wanting to add an inlay to their work.
