Is apache tear in reference to the tribe apache? If so, do other tribes have their own representing crystal? I ask since I am part Blackfoot and Cherokee....learning about my Native American roots. Thank you.
Tthank you for your inquiry. The story behind the name for Apache Tears references the Native American tribe:
I am not aware of any crystals associated with Blackfoot or Cherokee, but the website linked above has a wealth of information and would be a good place to start.
