What you are seeing is essentially pieces of ice, thermal shielding, and other debris from the pyro charges separating the spacecraft.

Well, Orbiter has its own particle generating engine, and in order to keep realtime performance, the particles can only be so small. Plus, you'd be surprised how big debris chunks can be.
