Abstract: In an earlier treatment it was demonstrated that general relativity giveshigher values of surface tension in strange stars with quark matter thanneutron stars.We generate the modified Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equation toincorporate anisotropic matter and use this to show that pressure anisotropyprovides for a wide range of behaviour in the surface tension than is the casewith isotropic pressures. In particular it is possible that anisotropydrastically decreases the value of the surface tension.
