After a quick look I think only the lowest photo has some OLD beads. (Not necessarily ancient.)

For advice regarding seals, see my replies from ca. two weeks ago, below. Some of those shown are more-or-less the same as seen in my link. However, I did not look carefully—and the photos are not close enough to be too confident. But, reasonably, they are mostly or all repros.

The zi beads are all recent Chinese reproductions. None predate 1992. And they are most-likely less than 10 years old.

Anyone buying zi beads should know that 9-eye beads typically cost about $50,000. and much more. No one is going to find these, nor other desirable-pattern zi beads in a bowl for a few dollars.
