The story behind apache tears.
In the 1870s, on a mountain top in Arizona, the US cavalry launched a surprise attack on a band of 75 Pinal Apaches. The Apache warriors were at a disadvantage and outnumbered. Around 50 of the group were killed immediately by gunfire. Rather than accept defeat at the hands of the enemy, the remaining warriors rode their horses off a cliff on the side of the mountain.
The wives and family members of the dead gathered at the base of the cliff. Here they mourned their dead for a moon. Legend says:
“Their sadness was so great, and their burden of sorrow so sincere that the Great Father imbedded into black stones the tears of the Apache Women who mourned their dead. These black obsidian stones, when held to the light, reveal the translucent tear of the Apache.” (Extract from the Firstpeople).
