The Crystal of the Day Sunday 17 November 2013 is Apache Tears. The Legend of the Apache Tear is this: One day a party of Apache Indians were ambushed by an enemy tribe. The Apaches fought bravely but were greatly outnumbered and driven to the top of a high bluff. Their arrows gone and unable to fight and unwilling to be taken captive, they leapt from the cliffs to their death. Their women were understandably grief-stricken and wept over the bodies. Their teardrops froze when they hit the ground to become the lovely stones we know today as Apache Tears. It is said that whomever owns one of these stones will never cry again, for the Apache women shed enough tears already.

Apache Tears are said to especially relieve grief and sadness as well as assisting in giving and accepting forgiveness. They can help release negative emotions, and they also can balance one’s emotional state. They are good luck stones, said to bring good luck to anyone who has one. They are excellent meditation tools, especially for clarifying issues and gaining insight. Apache Tears are a gently grounding stone. In the physical realm, Apache Tears are reputed to alleviate muscle spasms and eliminate toxins from the body.

Apache Tears are a type of black Obsidian, but they have a more friendly vibration than some of the other types of Obsidian. Perhaps it is their strange out-of-shape appearance that makes you comfortable with them.

These are very useful stones for anyone to use, but if you are a healer, or if you are doing any spiritual development work, there are strong advantages to using these stones. Their energy works within the base chakra where it will move excess energy down into the earth chakra for grounding with Mother Gaia.

The energy of the Apache Tears will strengthen the blood and the immune system and they will help the body to assimilate Vitamin C and D. They assist with the reduction of toxins in the body by aiding their removal. They may calm muscle spasms and enhance vitality and strength within the body.

Their energy within the sacral chakra helps to aid the removal of disharmonious energies in relationships.

Within the heart chakra their energy will assist the emotional body to heal… from old issues of an emotional nature. They may bring through joy as they encourage you to feel more positive about life. Because they do absorb so much negativity, they will need to be regularly cleansed using one of the methods for cleansing crystals.
