Apache Tears help one to see into the core of an issue to assist with deep healing. Apache Tears have an uncanny ability to lend support during times of sorrow. They will gently help one to accept and then release their grief, thereby releasing and removing blockages.
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 a type of Black Obsidian, but they have a more friendly vibration than some of the other types of Obsidian.
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.
