May be a Pentaceraster obtusatus and a Protoreaster nodosus?
I think the colour is real, they normally dye the first one pictured pink or red.
If you live near Barcelona, in Lloid minerals, (C/ Girona, 27), the dealer will be able to help you with identification, as he also sells erchins, coral and starfish and has a knowledge of their classes, types and scientific names. I'm sorry I can't help you any further.

Best wishes,
