Bdellium

Additional Links
Translation of bedolah , a word of uncertain meaning. It has been identified as a gum or resin, pearl, or stone. Genesis 2:12 mentions bdellium, gold, and onyx as products of Havilah. Numbers 11:7 likens manna to bdellium in appearance. Terms in other languages using words very similar to bedolah favor the identification with a resinous gum. In droplet form, the gum may have the appearance of a pearl or stone.
