These appear to be rough-outs that have been tumble-polished, rather than being typically refined and made into "nice" shapes.
The rough-outs are not "faceted." They are flaked or knapped—much like flint has been worked for thousands of years, to make implements and tools.
Although they might be from India, I know similar (quartz) beads from China.
Be well. Jamey
