A quick story about Apache Tears which are a type of Obsidian:
This is an excerpt from http://www.healing-crystals-for-you.com
Apache Tears are a type of Black Obsidian Stone found in the south-western USA and Mexico. The meaning of their name comes from an American Indian legend. It was said that certain members of this tribe were pursued by the Cavalry… and although they fought bravely they were outnumbered. Rather than be captured they jumped off the cliff to their deaths. The distraught women of the tribe cried dark tears of grief… which fell to the earth, and formed into these dark strangely shaped stones, which are believed to be their tears formed into reality so people will always remember what happened.
The Apache lands are in need of some attention, it is unbelievable what our government has done and continues to do to the native first people of this land.

save Oak Flat/Apache Leap as a holy place for the San Carlos Apache Tribe by designating it a National Monument.
Oak Flat, currently a part of Tonto National Forest, has been a sacred place for the San Carlos Apache tribe for generations, used for coming-of-age ceremonies for young girls and for traditional acorn gathering. An addition to the most recent National Defense Authorization Act makes it part of a land swap between the Forest Service and Resolution Copper Mining, a subsidiary of two multinational corporations. This land has been protected from mining since the Eisenhower administration. We call on President Obama to use his designated authority to establish National Monuments in order to preserve this sacred place from destruction.
Sign the petition, not to join the winning side, but to stand and say this is wrong. As mentioned above the Senator Flake has been given over a hundred thousand dollars by Rio Tinto. As they say the race is not always to the swiftest nor the battle to the strongest, but that is way the smart money bets.

Defense Bill Passes, Giving Sacred Native American Sites To Mining Company
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate passed a measure authorizing the nation’s defense programs Friday, and along with it managed to give lands sacred to Native Americans to a foreign company that owns a uranium mine with Iran.
The $585 billion National Defense Authorization Act of 2015 is one of the must-pass pieces of legislation that Congress moves every year. But like they did in attaching extraneous riders to the must-pass government funding bill, lawmakers used the defense bill as a vehicle to pass a massive public lands package.
The bill sailed through on a vote of 89 to 11.
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) mounted a bid to strip the entire lands package from the bill, but secured only 18 votes in his favor.
It’s not only people concerned about any benefit Iran might get who were worried about giving American forest land to a foreign firm that has such a connection.
Native Americans, particularly the Apache tribe in the area, say digging a massive mine under their ancestral lands will destroy sacred ceremonial and burial grounds.
