The Apache tears are polished and considered medium size, and approximately 1″. One order is one pound of Apache tears and there are about 50 in each one pound bag. These dark rounded pebbles are actually volcanic glass, (obsidian), which were “formed by the rapid solidification of lava without crystallization.” These are great to give to students, and others. Hold the Apache tear to a light source and notice that they are transparent. Stock #567-P.
