Apache Tears are a type of black Obsidian however they have a more friendly vibration than some of the other types of Obsidian. Maybe it is their strange out-of-shape appearance that makes you comfortable with them. They are strong stones for grounding and protection and to aid you to clear negative emotions that may be holding you back.
These dark strange looking stones occur naturally in these odd shapes. They are not altered but are natural crystals found in the south-western USA and Mexico. They are volcanic stones, that may be partly transparent. Their colour is very dark brown to black in colour.
Their name comes from an American Indian legend. It was said that certain members of this tribe were pursued by the Cavalry and although they fought bravely they were outnumbered. Rather than be captured they jumped off the cliff to their deaths. The distraught women of the tribe cried dark tears of grief which fell to the earth, and formed into these dark crystals.
