Turquoise question

Having read all the interesting posts about turquoise, I cannot help but wonder about my turquoise items. I am posting some of my turquoise beads and hope lopacki will comment on whether they are genuine turquoise or howlite or dyed.

All the items came from China land of fakes (and also of many wonderful things)

The first pic shows a bird, a shell and some small animal and the reverse of these is shown in second picture. Would also be grateful if someone can tell the age and vintage of the pieces.

Many thanks in advance.
