How to tell ivory from shell cameo?

How do you tell the difference between an ivory cameo versus a shell cameo?


I have a cameo that is from the early 1800s and i'm not sure what it is made from. It could be a pin and also can double up as a pendant to put on a necklace, if that helps. Thank you in advance for your help.
