It looks like swarf from metal worked with a lathe cutting tool, the colours being a result of the heating and cooling of the steel.

I thought I'd be all smart and say metal shavings from a drill or drill press, but obviously I am not.

Looks to me like these are bits of scrap from the floor of a screw making factory.

Tim got it EXACTLY right: "swarf from metal worked with a lathe cutting tool, the colours being a result of the heating and cooling of the steel." Right on! More specifically, they are shavings from this project.
