Similar to the Black Obsidian, the Apache Tears were formed by volcanic eruptions. When the lava was forced into the air, it solidified quickly while still in the air and before hitting the ground. So, it is literally made from the fire energy of the Earth which makes it an incredibly grounding stone. It will transmute negative energies and provide protection to the wearer.
Use the Apache Tears to remove your own negative emotions such as anger, jealousy, greed and resentment. This stone is very powerful and can be used to release energy blocks but like the black obsidian, it also works very fast and brings issues to the surface so you need to be ready to face them.
