I think it's a "toy" made by someone with some cat's eyes and clay, but the picture isn't very clear.

If they were cats-eyes they wouldn't all appear equally bright as they are pointing in different directions. 

I vote crudely-made self-luminous hoax [with led light(s) in it]

It's tiny - surely that is the lens of a samsung smart phone (galaxy note white?) in the top picture.  So if that square is around 10mm across - then so is the artefact.  Thats awfully neat work for 7 leds

It's not easy to judge scale but the leds look pretty plausible.

All praise to the One.
