Reply To: Apache Tears – to facet or not?

Profile photo of abrugger

Thanks for the feedback (and word of caution) Hayden. I’ve been doing some more online searching today and found a faceted piece of obsidian they are saying is an apache tear and it made me realize that if I facet it, it can’t really be a tear anymore. That person said her piece was so rare because she had it faceted by one of the only 2 people in the US that know how to facet apache tears without them “exploding”. (That was on Etsy). I think I’ll take one of the smaller ones to facet but leave the others as “specimens”. I’d hate to think the only “value” from a faceted apache tear is gained by misleading the buyer like that person did on Etsy.
