Natural and genuine black “Apache Tear” Obsidian, a translucent variety of Black Obsidian found in New Mexico. These are perfect for crafting, collecting, or metaphysical use. Each stone measures about 1/2″ to 3/4″.
Metaphysical Properties: “Much gentler in its effect than Obsidian. It still brings up negativity but does so slowly so that it can be transmuted. It is an excellent for absorbing negative energy and for protecting the aura. Apache tear is so named because it is believed to shed tears in times of sorrow.” — Information found in “The Crystal Bible” by Judy Hall. *Metaphysical advice is provided for curiosity only and is not intended to replace a physician’s advice.
