A personal note about Apache Tears - Legend says that Apache Tears were formed from the fallen tears of grief from the women in the Apache Indian tribe. They are a personal choice of mine to use when I'm feeling overwhelming amounts of sadness, grief, and pain deep within my heart. They harmonize well with the nurturing and compassionate energies of Green Aventurine and Rose Quartz. Apache Tears are a distinct form of Obsidian that is found in Mexico and the southwestern parts of the United States. These particular ones were found in Colorado by a fellow rockhounding friend of mine.
