When I saw this beguiling egg-shaped Apache Tear I knew it would make a perfect pendulum! I have caged it in Silver wire to a simple silver chain. An opaque Black Obsidian is the handle. Apache Tears are used to help process grief, but they are also used for meditation, grounding, insight and clarity, which are very appropriate qualities for a pendulum. This Apache Tear is translucent but because it is so large (1 inch long and 3/4 inch wide, you will have to hold it up to the light to see the translucence. Overall length is 6 inches.
