Finally got around to examining the beads in bright sunlight using an optivisor, discovered what I mistakenly thought was pink or red is actually a coppery brown.

I say "coppery" because these bits have a faint metallic sheen. Not glittery like aventurine, more like an old copper penny.

Could not capture the metallic effect with my camera, but it's there, trust me ;^)
