Original Message:   There is more dark amber undertone to these beads
So I can believe these are phenolic resin. Only a very thin outer layer turns cherry red with age & exposure unless heat treatment is used to drive the color change reaction.

For your first photo, Iím not sure. There doesnít appear to be any amber undertone, but color photography that is underexposed like in that picture can mask a lot of features.
