Yes.  Dinosaur bone shards are often cut and polished to a high sheen, to be used as jewelry inclusions.  :) 

As far as I know, however, there is no real way of identifying such pieces to anything other than "dinosaur bone."

Yes, these are real. Most of them come from the Morrison formation.

How do they identify it as dinosaur and not other archosaurs?

Agatized dinosaur bone is what is typically used for polishing so that one can see the cell structure of the bones.  Jurassic bones out of the Morrison Formations of Utah and Colorado make good candidates

I've read that some gembones do come from Patagonia (Argentina and Chile) but cannot add much more than that.   So it's possible that those are Chilean.
