What are crystal skulls?
Crystal skulls are usually made of some type of quartz crystal and are generally found in Mexico and Central America but also have been found in Tibet, Peru, and Russia. The skulls are usually shaped like human skulls ranging in size from 1 inch in diameter to 7 inches in diameter or even larger. Some skulls are anatomically correct while others are just crude replicas. There are skulls that show the definite shape of the teeth, while others do not.
Two types of skulls exist; contemporary skulls more recently carved and ancient ones carved before the Pre- Columbian era. Modern skulls are usually identified more readily by the stroke marks of the jewelers wheel seen in the crystal. Since the fourteenth century, craftspeople used jeweler's wheels powered by hand or foot. The wheels today are made of metal and coated in diamonds and are electronically powered. A skull with carving strokes in a circular motion from a rotary wheel would be identified as contemporary. However, new archaeological evidence contradicts the present belief that pre-Columbian artisans did not use rotary wheels, so trying to accurately date a crystal skull seems almost impossible. In addition, crystals cannot be subjected to carbon-14 dating tests. These tests are only valuable on organic materials such as bone or wood fossils. Other factors that make dating crystals difficult are: they do not change with age, do not corrode, or become brittle, and they neither attract organisms nor acquire a patina.
The owners or caretakers of the privately owned skulls all report some mystical occurrences around them. Some report healings, strange sounds or changes in the skulls as well as instances of psychic development. We surmise that the ancient crystal skulls were used in conjunction with various ceremonies, particularly healing or divining. Sensitives who have had the opportunity to sit with a purported ancient skull suggest that they were either created by more advanced civilizations such as Atlantis or Lemuria, brought to earth by extra-terrestrials or by an unknown race of people.
