Dark but translucent when held to the light.
The name derives from a legend in which the United States cavalry squared off in battle with Apache warriors on a mountain overlooking what is now Superior, Arizona, in the 1870’s.
Rather than face defeat, the outnumbered Apache warriors rode their horses off the mountain to their deaths.
The tears shed by their surviving tribe members are said to have turned to stone upon hitting the ground, becoming the Apache Tears.
Apache tear energy is all about the inner work necessary to make real progress in our lives.
Helps bring to consciousness what has been suppressed, and purifies the emotions through recognition and the experience of grief.
