Since one can see repeating crescent shapes in different beads, I would be inclined to guess these may be pink mollusk shell—as from the pink conch.

If you view these with an enlarging hand-lens, you should be able to spot the structures that are typical of mollusk shell. In contrast, coral may have subtle longitudinal lines and possibly roundish polyp scars. I recognize mollusk shell when I see it, but I could not describe what I see in a way that would be helpful. In spite of a valiant search, I did not find a close shot of this on the Net. Something for me to do when I can.... Jamey
