Facts refute "NOT super jewelry glossary" --APACHE TEARS---


#1

GREETINGS;

Okay fellow’s,(GIRLS TO)—talk to me… You place one rough ‘apache
tear’ (from Arizona), let’s say–1" in diameter, into a burn out
oven,(kiln)–heat up this natural stone slowly , until roughly 1800
Deg. --You crack the door a little, and witness this 1 in. stone
expand to roughly, 3 inches.,looking like packed snow ball,–(thus
called Arizona ‘snow balls’ )… Let the oven cool down naturally. With
the kiln cold, take this ‘stone’ drop it into water,—it floats… Cut
it in half with a butter knife, looks like ‘melted’ spun glass. No
other stone does this… certainly NOT any of the -obsidians–
SO, WHAT IS THIS UNIQUE STONE CALLED - APACHE TEAR-?

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU-VERY MUCH… Dave (18k)
