They are ideal to carry when you are doing griefwork, trauma recovery, or therapy for old emotional wounds. Apache tears are gentle. This is essential when the healing work you are doing is in difficult territory such as when healing from violent trauma or child abuse. (See below for the legend of how Apache Tears got their name–they are especially resonate for people healing grief from the suicide of a loved one).
Apache tears also carry the properties of obsidian, including protection, purification, and grounding. They gently cleanse the aura of negative vibrations & energy & protect you from picking up more. Because of their nourishing and calm properties, they are the best form of obsidian for those in grief or others who may be feeling fragile.

Apache tears give you that gentle support that helps you keep your head above water. Think of them like a lifejacket for the turbulent waters of your inner emotional landscape.
