they are "real" beads, but this colouring/texture could also easily be carved pink cameo shell- (sorry but there wasn't enough space to include examples in the photos in my recent book: "Beads -a History and Collector's Guide".)
All shell material has a distinctive texture viewed under magnification, which somewhat differs from Coral.
