The mystery of the Crystal
Skulls is a fascinating one, taking into account man's history of not
listening, the magic of precious crystal and the foresight of the
earliest civilizations to leave a legacy.
Mystery of the Crystal Skulls
The legend talks about
thirteen crystal skulls, left by our earliest ancestors in the area of
Central America. They were supposedly scattered and awaiting the
discovery by modern humans. Five have been found, one being in
Texas, one in Canada (the most famous - the Mitchell-Hedges Skull) one
at the Smithsonian, one at the British Museum and one in Paris.
The skulls are said to house
information for humankind and all the skulls will be found (and the
information released) when the human race is ready to accept it.
Interestingly, the owner of
the Mitchell-Hedges skull attempted to have the age verified by the
company Hewlett Packard. With their remarkable work with crystal
chips, they had the expertise to research the skull.
To the amazement of the
experts, the skull had absolutely no tool markings on it, which is one
way of determining its age...the most precise way. The surface of
the skull is glass smooth with no rubbings or chips or tool markings
The Aztec and Mayan cultures
believed the skulls held psychic power and enabled those around them to
gain wisdom and fore-knowledge from them.
Many crystal skulls are
manufactured today and often used as a skrying
or divination tool. They are made from a variety of stones
from Amethyst to Topaz. Psychics
and readers will use the large piece of crystal as they would any
other stone. Energy and force are found within the products of the
earth, like stones and metals. These skulls are used like a

Whether you believe in the
"power" of these skulls, or it's merely a fascinating myth,
this mystery is one that I suspect humankind will ponder for many
generations to come.
