Named after Job, the biblical character in the Old Testament, who endured great suffering. There is unanimous agreement that the shape of these beads represents tears, however "whose" tears is a point of disagreement since they are also known as Saint Mary's tears, David's tears and Christ's tears.
For centuries, this tropical wild grass seed has been gathered as a food as well as for decorative craft and jewelry-making material. When they are harvested they already have a polished sheen and a natural hole through them. Since these beads are a natural material, expect variances in color as they will vary from cream, grey, tan or brown in a variety of hues.
