Apache Tears are a type of Obsidian, which appear rough and opaque at first glance, but are often translucent when held up to a light source (try it! It's pretty cool!) Apache Tears are created when hot lava is forced directly into the air and quickly solidifies before hitting the ground . They have an uncanny ability to lend support during times of sorrow and because of this, many people turn to Apache Tears during times of grieving. They gently help you to accept and then release your grief, thereby releasing and removing blockages. Logical thinking skills can be enhanced by Apache Tears, which can lead to new doors opening for success. Carry an Apache Tear in your pocket as protection from all types of negative energies, including psychic attacks. The Apache Tear will help to remove and transmute these energies, clearing the way for more positive vibrations.
