We entertain and educate through stories and histories of actual events that occurred in the Superstition Mountains and surrounding areas. Our stories and histories are backed by research to be as accurate as possible. Many are first-person accounts which increases the fun.
After researching Apache Tears and writing about them, my wife, Debbie, and I decide to go find some of our own. As Apache Leap is near the town of Superior, Arizona we thought, heck, there just has to be some Apache Tears somewhere around Superior. And we were right. Superior has a good-sized perlite mining and refining operation.
This is our trip to get our own Apache Tears.
