These are actually intricate hand made beads, of brass, with tiny chips of lapis lazuli and turquoise embedded in resin.  The red may be coral chips but I am not sure. They are made in the Himalayas, probably in Nepal rather than Tibet. I suspect that the stone chips have been somewhat dyed to enhance their colour. They are discreetly glued on gold-plated brass or plain brass mounts.
