Sorry, this item has sold.

Natural Apache Tear Stones look like round, black pebbles. The mineral is actually a variety of Black Obsidian. The raw, black stone is a favorite among so many with an interest in healing crystals and stones. Raw Apache Tear provides an appealing, rough appearance that will eventually take on a more polished look, the more you rub it.

The name "Apache Tear" comes from a story told about an Apache tribe in Arizona. It is said that a grouping of Apache Native Americans battled with U.S. soldiers on a mountain in Arizona in the 1800's. The Apache's were defeated by the U.S. soldiers. The legend says that when the wives found out about their beloved husbands not surviving this battle, they cried and their tears turned to a black stone when they hit the ground, forever preserving themselves into what we know today as the "Apache Tear".

These natural Apache Tears come straight from Arizona where they were mined. How they look is exactly how it came out of the Earth and vary in size, shape and pattern. In the images above, you can see a clear display of the uniqueness of each individual raw Apache Tear. I currently have sizes ranging from 1 to 1.25 inches. When you are purchasing, I will intuitively select them for you. However, if you are looking for a specific size, just message me during your purchase and I will assist you in finding the perfect one for you. Due to these being natural Apache Tear Stones, please allow for a unique appearance, including scratches and little "divots"/ indented surfaces.

All the products at Sage and Synergy are stored, hand selected or created within sacred space regularly cleansed of negative energy and surrounded by positive loving energy and inspiration. I cherish and respect all my stones and crystals, even those that are here only temporarily.
