Ancient Pyu Bead with gold repair-59mm long

I'm adding a couple more Pyu Culture items so people can get a sense of the wide variety of beads that came out of that Era in Burma.

Anyone know where these beads are from. I have seen new amber from Colombia that were this same color of amber......but all of the necklaces in the lot were supposedly from North Peru Coast, specificly Moche & Chimu. Can anyone identify these…
