According to legend, Apache tears got its unique name from the tragic American Indian history. In the early 1870s, 75 Apache warriors wound themselves outnumbered and surrounded by the US cavalry. Instead of surrendering, these courageous warriors leaped from a cliff to their death. When the Apache tribe women found out they had lost their husbands, fathers and sons in a tragic way, they cried day and night for a month or more. Their tears, upon falling on the ground, formed the oval-shaped crystals now known as the apache tears.
