They are volcanic stones, that may be partly transparent. Their color is very dark brown to black in color. These dark strange looking stones occur naturally in these odd shapes. They are not altered but are natural crystals.
The Legend of the Apache Tear is this:
One day a party of Apache Indians was ambushed by an enemy tribe. The Apaches fought bravely but were greatly outnumbered and driven to the top of a high bluff. Their arrows gone and unable to fight and unwilling to be taken captive, they leaped from the cliffs to their death. Their women were understandably grief-stricken and wept over the bodies. Their teardrops froze when they hit the ground to become the lovely stones we know today as Apache Tears. It is said that whomever owns one of these stones will never cry again, for the Apache women shed enough tears already.
