Apache tears are a type of black obsidian (volcanic glass) that is round or oval in form.. Be careful, some edges are sharp. The Legend: About 75 Apaches and the US Cavalry fought on a mountain overlooking what is now Superior, Arizona in the 1870s. Facing defeat, the outnumbered Apache warriors rode their horses off the mountain to their deaths rather than be killed. The wives and families of the warriors cried when they heard of the tragedy; their tears turned into stone on hitting the ground. (Wikipedia) Supposedly heal grief and give protection.
