Apache tear obsidian is a must-have for any collector. It’s the number one stone for releasing and letting go, perfect if you are going through a challenge in a relationship and potent if you have lost a love or a loved one. Apache tear obsidian was a stone used by grieving Native American widows who lost their husbands in battle, hence the name. It is believed to carry your tears and hold your sorrow so you don’t have to carry the burdens of grief and sadness alone.
You can easily tell it apart from other Obsidians by holding up to a light. If you can see a light smokey grey colour then it is the Apache Tear Obisidian.
