The Apache Tear gets its name from an American Indian legend. The story goes that the Apache tribe were outnumbered in battle and many were killed. The rest retreated to the cliff top and chose to jump to their death rather than be captured. The women of the tribe were heartbroken and mourned greatly and it is said that as their tears dropped to the earth they turned to these amazing stones. This makes them excellent stones for grief.
