APACHE TEAR STONE
“ Apache Tears received their name because it is said that grieving Apache women, who lost their loved ones in a raid, cried for a month and their tears fell to the ground, becoming a form of Black Obsidian. This is why Apache Tears will often protect the wearer from grief and sorrow. The Tears will absorb the grief and release old hurts, and lifting the spirit. They allow you to forgive others without being bitter.
Generally, all Obsidian protects the wearer from hostility, negativity, psychic ‘vampires’ and spiritual entities that do not belong. It offers release from tension and enables one to move forward in his/her life, with a more promising outlook.
Physically, Obsidian often points to the root cause of an illness. It clears the blockages that cause disease. Use Obsidian for detoxifying, alleviating bleeding, increasing blood circulation, and helping with the pain associated with arthritis and other joint discomfort. Use Apache Tears to help with deficiencies of Vitamins D and C, muscle spasms and knee discomfort. ”
