Apache Tear stones are a form of obsidian that has a background born of legend. Pinal Apache found were battling colonists and found themselves outnumbered and corned at the rugged cliffs in Superior, AZ. Rather than being taken captive, the warrior lept off of the mountain to their death. When remaining tribal members saw their loved ones' remains they wept. Creator heard the cries of the Apache and their tears mixed with the Earth created the Apache Tear. It is said that if you carry an Apache Tear you should not remain in sorrow, for the Apache had cried enough.

Each stone is unique and will vary in size, color, and shade variations.
