The Crocodile's Tear was a jewel possessed by Y'Syska, an evil sorceress whose collection of gems and minerals was without compare.
She protected the Crocodile's Tear by hiding it in the Miznia jungle. Survivors of the jungle came back to report that the Crocodile's Tear rested on a large idol (more likely a remnant of a forgotten religion) in the shape of a Crocodile the size of a subway train.
Anyone wishing to steal Crocodile's Tear would have to climb the idol without sliding into its mouth, and becoming trapped. It is rumored that the same peasant who recovered the Coconut of Quendor also successfully stole the Crocodile's Tear.
It came to the possession of Thaddium Fzort.
