Ancient, perhaps alien, real crystal skulls have an unsolved mystery associated with them…they have properties that seem to defy science and how they were even created would require a complete vacuum allegedly.
Archeological excavations have uncovered a variety of ancient crystal skull carvings, mostly attributed to the ancient Mayan civilization in Central America. They have a way of grabbing the human imagination, and have inspired many stoneworkers to create replicas, and are the subject of many popular works of fiction.
However, among the authenticated, ancient-carved crystal skulls that have been discovered, one stands out from the rest. It’s known by the Mayans as the Skull of Doom, and was used by their high priests to will the deaths of their enemies.
It was discovered at the site of a Mayan temple in Belize, by the famous explorer F.A. Mitchell-Hedges, and his teenage daughter Anna, who guarded it til her death at age 100. Strangely, it was found in two pieces since the jawbone is fully detachable, just like a real skull. It is also incredibly lifelike, with details so precise that it is identifiable as the skull of a female in her 20’s.
Analysis by experts including the Smithsonian Institute, National Geographic and Hewlett-Packard’s crystal laboratories, verified that both pieces were fashioned from a single crystal of quartz, with a highly unusual natural axis that could only have formed in outer space, or other zero gravity environment. Plus the mineral is so hard, it would have taken about 300 years of constant polishing with diamond dust to have shaped it.
They also noted the precise, natural placements of various prisms deep within the skull, that reflect light to and from the eyes, causing them to glow ominously from ambient light, and perhaps be able to see. Many have also reported hearing mysterious ringing sounds emanating from it, inexplicable changes of color, and even experiencing suddenly severe thirst while handling it.
Legend has it that this is the master skull in a set of thirteen, that began awakening humanity’s consciousness when the Mayan calendar expired in 2012, to prepare us for a new age dawning in 2018.
