Apache Tears are volcanic glass and a translucent form of black obsidian. They received their name because it is said that grieving Apache women, who lost their loved ones in a raid, cried for a month and their tears fell to the ground. This is why Apache Tears will often protect the wearer from grief and sorrow. These stones will absorb the grief and release old hurts, and lifting the spirit. They allow you to forgive others without being bitter and are associated with the root chakra.
These Apache Tear specimens are meduim in size and are approximately 1 to 1.5 inches in diamter.
