|Could these be early Faturan?|

These beads were on a strand comprised of mostly old and new brass beads and fairly standard millefiori and bakelite beads.
The beads pictured leave a definite tobacco stain when tested with simichrome. They appear to be hand made with lovely twinkling layers and a surface that looks molded rather than milled. The holes appear to have been drilled.
They are about 2.2 to 2.5cm long X 1.5 - 1.8cm wide.
Holes vary from .2 to .5cm.
