What magical powers lay hidden inside the crystal skulls? Who made these enigmatic objects? When were they created and what were these mysterious items used for?
Many questions hover risen about the many crystal skulls which have appeared at different times in the past couple of centuries, and to answer the questions about these enigmatic objects, a series of myths, legends, hypotheses, and theories have been proposed by different researchers as answers. The truth behind them, however, remains far more mysterious than what we are willing to accept.
Perhaps the most famous crystal skull was discovered in 1924 by Anna Mitchell-Hedges Le Guillen, during an expedition to the Mayan ruins of Lubaantun, located in modern-day Belize, while they were searching for the lost city of Atlantis. Anna Mitchell-Hedges has attested that she, her father, and the others on the expedition at the “lost” city of Lubaantun, “were digging in the temple, moving a heavy wall which had fallen on the altar…. I came upon the skull buried beneath the altar, but it was some three months later before the jaw was found which was about 25 feet away.”
Made of pure quartz crystal, both the mandible and the skull were created from the same rock. Except minor anomalies, the skull is anatomically perfect, possibly representing a female skull due to its smaller size of 12.7 cm in height while its weight is around 5 kg. The prisms located at the base as the hand-polished lenses of the eyes are a combination that produces an incredible shine. The skull, which is perfectly carved out of rock crystal, has a high degree of hardness which, according to scientists, is a seven out of ten on the Mohs scale.
In the early 1970s, his mysterious object was studied by an independent restorer by the name of Frank Dorland, who estimated it would have been chiseled in basic form, using diamonds, and then polished to perfection. According to Dorland, the mysterious crystal skulls it at least 12,000 years old.
Years later, the skull was examined in the laboratories of Hewlett-Packard after which Mayan expert and archaeologist Norman Hammond studied it, and warned that the holes showed signs of having been made with metal tools.
