ID Help with these unusual ancient rock beads

0 votes

These beads have what look like eyes to me. The eyes are the color of carnelian and have opaqueness but the entire bead is not opaque. Perhaps some type of coral?

Thank you in advance.

Yeah, probably some type of agate. Perhaps its also dyed, as many of the agates from Brazil are.
