Product Description

APACHE INDIAN TEAR DROPS, PURE OBSIDIAN
THESE "APACHE TEAR DROPS" ARE NATURAL OBSIDIAN SMALL NODULES. THEY ARE TRANSLUCENT WHEN HELD TO THE LIGHT. THEY ARE SAID TO RELIEVE SADNESS AND EASE GRIEF.

THE STORY OF THE APACHE TEARS: ONCE A PARTY OF APACHE INDIANS WERE AMBUSHED BY AN ENEMY TRIBE. BEING GREATLY OUTNUMBERED ARROWS USED UP AND DRIVEN TO THE TOP OF A HIGH BLUFF THOSE PROUD INDIANS CHOOSE TO LEAP FROM THE CLIFFS TO THEIR DEATH. IT IS SAID THE APACHE GRIEF-STRICKEN WOMEN WEPT OVER THE BODIES. THEIR TEARDROPS FROZE WHEN THEY HIT THE GROUND TO BECOME BEAUTIFUL STONES WE KNOW TODAY. THE APACHE WOMEN LEFT THEIR TEARS IN STONE SO THOSE OWNING A APACHE TEAR DROP WOULD NEVER HAVE TO WEAP AGAIN.

IN ADMIRATION OF A FRIEND LIVING 100+ YEARS WHO SPEND SOME OF HIS LIFE ROAMING THE WESTERN STATES SUCCESSFULLY HUNTING FOR PURE OBSIDIAN IN THEIR NATURAL STATE. I AM PRESENTING SOME OF HIS SPECIMENS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

OBSIDIAN IS CAUSED BY VOLCANIC LAVA CONTACTING WATER. USUALLY THE COOLING IS SUDDEN. THIS SUDDEN PROCESS CAUSES A GLASSY TEXTURE. PURE BLACK OBSIDIAN GETS ITS COLOR FROM THE IRON AND MAGNESIUM CONTENT.

THE NATIVE INDIAN CULTURE KNEW THE BEAUTY AND USEFULNESS OF OBSIDIAN. THEY MADE WORK TOOLS FOR CUTTING, ARROWHEADS, SPEARS AND HAD PLACE OF IMPORTANCE IN NATIVE CEREMONIALS. SUCH OBSIDIAN OBJECTS HAVE BEEN FOUND IN BURIAL AND OCCUPATION SITES

THIS RAW NATURAL OBSIDIAN IS USED BY WORKMAN WHO CUTS, POLISHES AND ENGRAVES PRECIOUS STONES FOR MAKING BEAUTIFUL JEWELRY. THINGS OF BEAUTY MADE WITH OBSIDIAN IS LOVED AND ADMIRED BY EVERYONE.

THIS IS TWO RAW APACHE TEARS OF PURE OBSIDIAN FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION. THEY AVERAGE .75" IN DIAMETER.
