I do not think the Indonesian 'recycled glass beads' are intended as fakes or replicas. I think they just stand on their own, and through the technique, some resemble the ancient beads. As you say, the Indonesians are very good at making replicas, and these are just something different.

Having seen quite a few of McBeads beads up close at their shop, they are clearly very different to me than the ones Alex is showing.

I think somewhere the story of them being from Africa, 50 years ago, got mixed up with these beads.
