Like others, I was having problems with this achievement. The Ender Egg is right in the middle untouched, and the 4 End Crystals are all in the correct spots. For whatever reason, maybe due to it not being supported because it's an old world, the Ender Dragon wouldn't spawn. But luckily, there's still a way to get the achievement without having to start a new world.

What you need to do is go into the options of your world, and select "reset The End", which will make the Ender Dragon spawn as normal. Once you've went into the End and killed the Dragon now you should be able to make it respawn by placing the 4 End Crystals on each side of the exit portal, across from each other. Should look like this:

So the positive is that you'll still be able to get the achievement. The negative is you have to fight the Ender Dragon again. Oh well, if you did it once you'll be able to do it again!
jdogbitsIf I already placed my end crystals down and He did not spawn am I able to get my crystals back ? I had a hell of a time getting those tears.

Cemetery GirlsIf you try to break them they all will explode. You'd be better off exiting without saving.

jdogbitsSo frustrating ! I spent quite a while Getting those tears and when I put the crystals down nothing happened. Now I'm going to have to reset the end, kill the dragon, collect the materials again and respawn the dragon. I think it's bed time :/

Homunculus FuryJdogbits, disable the autosave. That way you can exit without saving and not lose things next time. Just remember to save when you want to keep progress made.

Kelle1994there should be a way, to get them back, but it is complicated as well. You can enchant a pickaxe with carefullness, this way you can get glas back, without breaking it, should work on those crystals too

Kelle1994yeah i mean that, minecraft is one of the few games i play in german, so i translated it 1:1 in englisch roll

Homunculus FuryNo worries I had assumed it was a translation. Or it was something new. Wasn't trying to bust your balls. I never did much enchanting in the game, thankfully you can read the enchantments now instead of guessing. Just to bad you need lapis AND EXP now

Homunculus FurySo I got a silktouch pickaxe and it will not let you pick up the crystal. So again be sure to save BEFORE placing crystals!
