Apache Tears are not altered but are natural crystals that heal grief. They have a strong action to aid emotional healing and bring you comfort when you are grieving. They are strong stones for grounding and protection, and to aid you to clear negative emotions that may be holding you back.
As a form of Obsidian, Apache Tears carry a very grounding vibration and are aligned to the Base or Root chakra. You can use it to connect with both your Earth Star chakra and with the Earth chakra at the center of the planet.
