I have been wondering why there are random-seeming holes in some types of carved Chinese beads that are not terribly old: see the example below. Do they serve as datum or set points for carving machinery? Can someone enlighten me? Thanks!

Also, the price of these carved rose cherry resin beads seems to have taken quite a downturn in the last few years!
