On one of my first trips to Quartzite, AZ I came across a collection of Apache Tears from Superior Arizona that were hand collected by one of the vendors in the market and I took all he had. I sorted them and in the process found many that were crystal clear with some ash and flow marks. I have been told this is the only place where this occurs regularly. I then picked some larger ones and cut them since I knew of no one else doing it. This is one of those stones. It is 12x12 mm weight of 8.80 carats

Included in this purchase is one of our GEM CLOTHS. This is to be used to wipe your stone clean of any light dirt or oil it may get on it before you present the stone for viewing. It will eventually get dirty itself but is washable and reusable.

Although Apache Tear looks similar to Smoky (Topaz) Quartz it is different in color and its obvious when compared. I offer this RARE opportunity to people who want unusual cut stones in their collection or for someone wanting to wear this Stone with its great Metaphysical powers.
Area: The Best clearest stones come from Superior Arizona but found in other volcanic areas.

Structure type: Volcanic Glass Amorphous (a variety of Obsidian)

Hardness: 5-6

Astrological Signs: Aries
METAPHYSICAL BELIEFS are that all crystals are very special sources that have powerful healing and transformational energy for all who embrace them. When reading these descriptions in our listings, please follow your own heart and intuition as you know if you feel the energy or not and you should use what feels right for you. Crystal interpretations are not meant as a substitute for therapy, medical advice, or the study of crystals; it is a belief they are an interactive tool to enhance your path of self-discovery and transformation.

APACHE TEAR is thought to be the best stone for protection so they make excellent Talismans. Strong stone for protection against accidents and ill-will sent by others as it brings good fortune. Like Black Obsidian helps us face things but in a gentler raising negativity to the surface slow and easy and it absorbs the negativity. Apache Tear helps us to understand situations in a realistic manner. Use on the Earth and Base Chakras to cleanse your Aura and ground. Apache Tear is an excellent crystal to use for meditation and spiritual journeying, by assisting you in seeing the bigger picture and helping find inner truth. This healing stone helps confront guilt feelings one might prefer remain hidden by allowing forgiveness of others and ourselves.

Legend has it that Apache Tear is formed from the tears of the Apache women over the death of their men. Excellent to use for grief, anguish and the pain of losing someone close to us as well as dealing with the emotional and physical problems associated with grief. It allows for letting go of old grievances and helps us to improve our analytical capabilities allowing us to see things more clearly and logically. Aids in easing distress and removes self-limitations and ideas while allowing one to be spontaneous.
