|Need ID Help Please! Ancient? Blue & White Mali Dug Beads|

My best guess is that the white glass "stripes" or white glass pieces were laid down in a striped pattern and pressed into the blue glass softened by heat, then rolled central to the bead. The bead then rolled, folded, and formed resulting in the swirling glass patterns. Please forgive my lack of accurate descriptive terms.
Both are measuring ~16mm wide, and about 7-8mm at thickest. Hole size is ~4-4.5mm and ~5mm for bead with old chipped side.
I am about to list this on my eBay and want to be as accurate as possible.
Any information on Origin, Age, and How these were likely made and anything else that is readily apparent to someone more experienced in this area than I am, would be much appreciated.
Will post a few single Pics & also Album. Please see IMGUR Album at bottom- be sure to scroll down to see all photos. Sorry the photos are not the best and had to make many attempts.
Thanks so much I do appreciate your Help and Bead Knowledge, Anne
