Lachrymosa are victorian era tear catchers, or tear vials. sometimes worn on a necklace, sometimes merely held, they were used the gather the tears wept by mourners at funerals. one type of lachrymosa had a special top which allowed the tears to evaporate (signifying the time to stop mourning), others had a sealed top to allow the tears to last for a year, at which point they would be poured on the grave of the person whom the tears were wept for. Via You are remarkable.
