JOB’S TEARs (also known as Coix lacryma-jobi) are the pearly seeds of an Asiatic grass. Their name refers to Job in the Bible, who was sorely afflicted but never lost his faith. Job was rewarded by God for his patience, and many people believe that with faith they too will get over and that these JOB’S TEARS have the power to help them. They say that they make a sincere wish, place seven JOB’S TEARS in their pocket and carry them this way for seven days At the end of the seventh day, they go to a place where there is running water, recite the 23rd Psalm (“The Lord is my shepherd...”), pray for their Desire, throw the JOB’S TEARS into the water over their left shoulder, walk away, don’t look back — and in seven days, their wish comes true. We make no claims for JOB’S TEARS, and sell as a Curio only.
