“Apache tears, black obsidian, golden sheen obsidian, and snowflake obsidian—These are all forms of black obsidian, which is a natural glass. Apache tears is one of the six traditional birthstones for Scorpio. Black obsidian draws you inward to the center of yourself, to the place of truth. It helps you dredge up emotions that are buried deep within.
