Have a question about this item?
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.
