The phenolic resin bead is the flattened oblate one. Coloring is pretty much an exact match in this case.

When placed side-by-side you can notice some differences - the horn beads for example show the edges of the layers that form the body of the bead. I don't know exactly how horn is processed to make beads but you won't see evidence of layers on phenolic beads.
