115ct Apache Tear Obsidian Crystal - Medicine bags, sacred arrangements!
This is an Apache Tear Obsidian crystal specimen. Shown next to a US quarter coin for size comparison. It is approximately 115 carats, or 23 grams. This variety of Black Obsidian is known for it's translucent quality when held up to bright light. The stone goes from looking black to having a sort of root beer colored tint when held up to a bright light source, as shown in one photo. The stone is fairly smooth to the touch, but the surface has a variety of natural small indentations and fissures. It would be great for medicine bags, sacred arrangements, crystal grids, etc.
From Wikipedia: "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 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."
It weighs about 0.8oz / 23 grams / 115 carats and measures approximately 1 1/4" inches long X 1" inch wide at the widest point. Code18
Apache Tear Obsidian is said to bring the holder comfort in time of grief and sorrow. It is also known as a stone of protection and grounding. Like some other obsidians, it is used to bring insight, acceptance and clarity of thought. Some Native American tribes consider them to be a sacred stone.
Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is "to remember." This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a Being of Light. You are a Spiritual Being, inside of a physical body. "Remember."
