This Necklace I designed with An Eagle Claw with an Apache Tear Gemstone. This stone is completely natural. It hasnt been tumbled, smoothed, faceted, etc. It has all the characteristics and natural imperfections.

The Necklace is a 24" 925 Sterling Silver Figaro Chain.

The one pictured is one that I made for a friend of mine. I would be happy to design one for you as a custom order. Include Stone of your choosing, Length of necklace, and style of chain if other than Figaro.

American singer songwriter Johnny Cash wrote lyrics entitled Apache Tears for his album Bitter Tears (Ballads Of The American Indian).


About 75 Apaches and the US Calvary squared off against each other in battle on a mountain overlooking what is now Superior, Arizona in the 1870's. Rather than face defeat, the outnumbered Apache warriors rode their horses off the mountain to their deaths. The families of the warriors cried when they learned of the tragedy. Legend has it that Apache Tear is formed from the tears of the Apache women over the death of their men. Their tears turned into stone upon hitting the ground. Today these beautiful translucent gemstones are known as Apache Tears "Good Luck Stones".

"To give a friend or loved one an Apache Tears Good Luck Stone is to give them GOOD LUCK to carry with them forever."

To us it's just a stone, but to the Ancient Ones it's a frozen tear, lost in the sands of time. Giving one to a friend unlocks their tears and allows GOOD LUCK to flow, as it frees their spirit from Mother Earth!

Since Superior, Arizona is located in the foothills of Apache Leap Mountain, one of the town's special attractions is Apache Tears Good Luck Stones..... This semi-precious gemstone is a Merikanite Obsidian, nature's glass in rounded shapes from pea size to softball size. Found only near Superior, Arizona USA, its smoky brown hue is semi-transparent when polished and held up to light. It is the ONLY obsidian nodule that can truly be called an Apache Tears Good Luck Stone!

I would recommend this stone to anyone of any age for personal growth and protection.

These Stones I have are quite exquisite.... If you hold it against something or wear it against your skin it will look black. But, it is held up to the light the true color is a smoky translucent color. These stones have not been polished so they are with its true natural characteristics. The unique shapes, distinctive crackles on the surface, and its alluring translucent smoky color is hypnotizing... Although pictures dont to it justice.

Obsidian is a stone of Honesty, Sincerity, and Truth.
It is considered a Grounding Stone.

1. Protection: Use obsidian to help block negativity of any kind... Guilt, Grief, rejection, loss, etc.
It protects from outside negativity from harming you as well as inner negativity, mental and
2. Insight: It gives you insight on yourself. Allows you to see the truth and provides insight on how
to deal with personal issues within yourself.

Obsidian is known as the 4th Step Stone for AA's 12 Step Program.
It is an excellent stone to seek out personal defects of character. Allows you to see the true inner you. And helps to make you aware of how to reclaim yourself.
It is also used for the 8th Step:
At Step 8... it is used for those who feel like they are stuck in a rut and cant get out or change a situation. The Obsidian will jolt you into reality and again, Give you insight on how to change or fix it.
