The hole "path" looks like what happens when you make the hole early on, then roll the bead more. You can see that the hole near the end of the bead is more flattened than the interior.

I thought they looked like some low-fired locally source clay. Or a poorly-made cement, as Jamie mentioned.

In any case, not glass- or coral-based?
