They remind me of other odd beads from Africa I've collected.

I have 2 or 3 colors I bought from traders.
Mine are all round, they are very hard, opaque, as heavy as glass, not as hefty as stone.
I have pink (yup!), brownish, etc.
I have some other strands, sort of drum-shaped that are white speckled with black particles. They look like someone mixed a compound of white granules with a few black granules, then shaped them.
Almost like somebody is trying to imitate stone rather than glass. "Resin" comes to mind, but I don't know why.
I'll try to take some pics of them tomorrow.
