Sterling Silver Chinese Coral ? Indian ? Beads What are they ?

Interesting Vintage necklace - The beads and clasp are silver and the cord these are strung on is also silver. To be frank I am not entirely sure what the material the beads are made from actually is.

It appears to have structure lines and be a type of organic material

Judging from Clasp it could be Indian or Chinese ?

Maybe its a coral - I am not sure although the structure looks different to mediteranean coral I have examined

If you do have any idea or know - be so kind as to drop me a line
