Apache Tears Tumblestone


Apache Tear is really a sub-group or type of obsidian; essentially the same stone, both made of volcanic glass and black in color. However, Apache Tears are black obsidian that formed by being thrown up into the air giving them a much less glassy & more rough appearance.


Though they are a type of obsidian, they do have their own properties.

Apache tears are have a strong affinity to help aid with emotional healing, to help with coping with grief.

They are also a strong stone when it comes to grounding and protection - something we all need when we feel most vulnerable during grief.
