Apache Tear is a form of Black Obsidian but it is much gentler in its effect. An Apache Tear is excellent for absorbing negative energy and for protecting the aura. It grounds and cleanses the earth chakra. Apache Tear is so named because it is believed to shed tears in times of sorrow. It comforts grief, provides insight into the source of distress, and relieves long-held grievances. This stone stimulates analytical capabilities and promotes forgiveness. It removes self-limitations and increases spontaneity.
HEALING: It enhances assimilation of Vitamins C and D, removes toxins from the body, and calms muscle spasms.
