Apache Tears

Apache Tears are wonderful for use in relieving grief and sadness, and assisting in giving and receiving forgiveness. They can help release pent-up negative emotions and they can also balance your emotional state. Named from a legend of the Pinal Apache tribe in the 1870s that nearly 50 of about 75 Apaches were killed in a battle with the US Cavalry, on a mountain overlooking what is now Superior, Arizona. Facing defeat, the outnumbered and outgunned Apache warriors rode their horses off the mountain cliff to their deaths rather than be killed. All of the Apache women and the lovers of those who had died gathered a short distance from the base of the cliff where the sands were white, and for a moon they wept for their dead. They mourned greatly, for they realized that not only had their 75 brave Apache warriors died, but with them had died the great fighting spirit of the Pinal Apaches. Their sadness was so great, and their burden of sorrow so sincere that the Great Spirit embedded into black stones the tears of the of those who mourned their dead. These black obsidian stones, when held to the light, reveal the translucent tears of the Apaches. They are excellent meditation tools, especially for clarifying difficult issues and gaining insight.
