The ingredients are a weird combination of gelatin and corn syrup-type sugars. My guess would be that they're firm but chewy like gummy worms.

In England "jelly" is what we would call "jello" in the US, if I'm not mistaken.

It's essentially sugar with stabilizers, preservatives, and moisteners. I have a feeling the picture on the eBay listing is slightly misleading, here is a more accurate picture direct from the manufacturer (mouse over the picture to zoom in):

Jason, you are right that picture is not really all shiny and diamond like!!

that's the problem with any kind of sugar jewels. They look really sparkly when you photograph them because of the flash, or the lights or whatever, but they aren't that shiny in real life. I sell the sugar jewels and unless they're a lighter color they don't look as shiny as they do if I photograph them with a flash. I try to use natural light because I don't want someone to buy them thinking that they look one way and have them look another when they get them.
