Apache Tears are a variety of Obsidian, a silica rich, glassy volcanic. Native to Mexico and Southwest in the United Sates. 

The name "Apache tear" comes from a legend of the Apache tribe: about 75 Apaches and the US Cavalry fought on a mountain overlooking what is now Superior, Arizona in the 1870s. Facing defeat, the outnumbered Apache warriors rode their horses off of  the mountain to their deaths rather than be killed. The wives and families of the warriors cried when they heard of the tragedy; their tears turned into stone upon hitting the ground.

Apache Tears are an emotional crystals, it is said to help those who are grieving and are feeling trapped in their emotions.  With the love of the Apache Tribe, sharing their love and strength, helping one to see through the sadness towards a positive future.

Tumble stones are so called because a number of stones of similar sizes are placed in a barrel which is rotated (tumbled) at a speed and after a time between 3 - 5 weeks the stones are polished from rough to smooth.
