Apache Tear earrings
You can see into these stones! This Apache Tear is translucent mahogany black in color. In the photo, I tried to capture the translucent nature of the stone. It is just beautiful!
We collected the Apache Tear stones while hiking the Jemez Mountains near Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Jemez Mountains have some of the most stunning red rock vistas of the Southwest! Oh, and we had a friendly bear (who kept his or her distance) which made the hike a little more thrilling than I would like.
The translucent Apache Tear stone is set in sterling silver and ear wires are sterling silver as well.
