if you search online for images of "atlas glass beads" there are any number of beads that are not correctly identified, including others drawn, faceted or lustred -so its good to be clear about this type and possible misidentification.
there is also a similar in appearance satin effect glass which is worked in a molten form with swirls, not tinted by dye, which i have heard described to me as "Atlas" by someone who had worked glass in the 1970s in Czechoslovakia when he was a prisoner of conscience, doing forced labour.

i found some yellowy ones with a similar faceted shape to yours at the link below:
