This is a simulated mother-of-pearl Styles preset for text and custom shapes. It works nicely for a Abalone wood inlay also. Just make the recommended adjustments.

Work on PSD files at a 300 Resolution (this works best).In the menu:Use Layer>Layer Style>Scale Effects to adjust the appropriate scale of the Styles effect. Adjust the size of the pattern as needed in the Blending Options -Via the Pattern Overlay/Scale slider.***For wood inlay effect: disable the Drop Shadow and Bevel/Emboss in the Styles Blending Options.

These 3 styles are very realistic; especially when the scale effects are used (about 250% worked best for me).
