Any idea about the possible period of production? Any additional info?

Difficult to determine by way of one low quality picture.
However, I believe that it is product of the 20th century.

Thanks Mark. Not sure why the photo was distorted, uploading another one from a different angle and with better quality.

I agree with our esteemed member Ernest opinion on the material.
It's highly probable to be bowenite. You will note the highly translucent areas.
