Re:

Looks like someone sliced a Quartz crystal!
Hard to tell from the photo.
Are the ttw pieces consistent in thickness? If so it is unlikely to be natural but not impossible.
Without hardness data and a closeup photo of any fractures or structure this is just a guess.
My experience tells me they are created from something else and are now in the "Marketing" family of rocks and minerals! See Quartz slabs/ slices when you start your search.
