I should have started my search on AliBaba.

There, one supplier has very similar ebony beads that can be supplied at the rate of 100 strands per week. Hopefully that means the wood is from a non-endangered source. AliBaba lists all sorts of ebony beads, BTW.

So unless someone has other info, I think I'm going to assume the beads I purchased, which were not that expensive, are new production from China. Dang!
