Antique Omani prayer chain with amber beads probably Birmite

Antique Omani prayer chain with amber beads probably Birmite

All the antique beads have a pattern of fine cracks, has anyone seen this before? How old are these beads? Is the amber birmite?
The antique prayer chain was purchased in Nizwa Sultannate of Oman 30 years ago. The new golden granulated beads were also added 30 years ago.

Hope someone can give me some useful information on these antique beads.
