Embedded in a greyish-white perlite matrix, the black Apache Tear shines like a shiny glass pebble. Apache tears are a translucent form of obsidian with a subtle beauty and soothing, healing energy.
Legend states that each stone is the fallen tear of an Apache widow, grieving for a lost warrior husband. Their historical meaning is interesting as these stones are powerful to heal especially whilst experiencing grief and emotional distress. Like all black obsidian they can absorb negative energy and may bring through joy, encouraging more positivity about life.
These wonderful energies makes apache tears a valuable stone for your crystal collection.
