|Some odd 8-sided "Russian" blue cane beads|

8 sides seems fairly uncommon.
The layers seem to vary from 3 to 5, instead of the more common light blue opal or cornflower blue core with a dark sapphire overlay.
Also, the layers are wobbly, thick/thin in some places.
The white layer seems to be deteriorated glass, not white glass.
The concave sides are distinctive.
I don't know what caused the matte finish - wear and ground burial? Grinding? Cat litter? Acid cleaning?
