These stones which are formed from the fires of the earth are quite powerful indeed! They are very grounding, and also assist with deep emotional healing. They help one accept and release their grief, and relieve stress. They are a 5.5 on the Moh's hardness scale, and are found worldwide.
Apache Tears are small roundish nodules of a black volcanic glass known as "obsidian". They look opaque, but when polished most of them will be translucent to semi-transparent if you hold them up to the light. They make beautiful jet-black tumbled stones.
