Here is one of many posts composed to discuss pema raka beads, from 2006:

New information suggests that the carnelian was sourced from Yunnan. So, while this is a different region than I have suggested in the past, it is also well-within-keeping for the original ideas I have expressed since the 1980s.

As far as I know, no one has suggested India as a place of origin. It has been my suggestion, from the time we first saw these beads, that they are some of the few ancient ethnic stone beads that are NOT from India. And I also noted that the quality of the carnelian stone differs from typical Chinese carnelians. Most of my ideas are panning-out.
