I bought these on a market in China a few weeks ago. I had not seen this color before. They look similar to some of the ones you show.
I did not manage to get he color really right in these pictures, BTW.

They are an agate.
It seems to me they are treated in a variety of ways. I think some of the matrix 'crackle' might be deliberate, and it has been color treated. On one end of the beads, most show a lighter area around the hole.
