I was told these beads were coral when I purchased them so many years ago. I don’t actually think they are. I apologized but I don’t know what they are. They are a warm brown color in the rice barrel shape. I have added turquoise, coral, ruby, gasperite, sugilite, carnelian and Thai silver which was once plated in gold but has now faded. 17 inches with 2 inch extender.
