There's nothing more intriguing than a really good
mystery, and they don't get much better than the mystery of the 13
crystal skulls. Discovered across Mexico, central and southern
America the 13 crystal skulls have sparked much debate about there
purpose and origin.
Believed to be
between 5000 and 35,000 years old the 13 crystal skulls are thought by
some to contain magical abilities and healing properties, others believe
them to be the remains of those from the lost city of Atlantis, and of
course others believe them to be nothing more than fakes.
The Most famous of the crystal skulls is the
'Mitchell-Hedges skull', discovered by the daughter of the famous
English archaeologist ' F.Albert Mitchell-Hedges' in 1927 the skull is a
perfect representation of the human skull, complete with moveable jaw
bone. 'Anna' after discovering the crystal skull experienced
strange dreams about the life of Indians who had lived thousands of
years before. Others who have come into contact with the
Mitchell-Hedges skull have also claimed to have experienced strange
feelings in its presence.
The other 12 crystal skulls are:
(1) The British Crystal Skull (2) The Paris
(3) The Mayan Crystal Skull (4) The Amethyst
(5) The Texas Crystal Skull (6) The ET Skull
(7) The Rose Quartz Crystal Skull (8-9) The 2
Aztec Crystal Skulls
(10) Sha-Na-Ra (11) Jaguar Man (12) The Rainbow
Scientific analysis of the Mitchell-Hedges
skull has unearthed little but more mystery, in fact experts at
'Hewlett-Packard' who examined the skull reported that it had been made
regardless of all laws and rules and in fact "the damn thing can't exist
at all'. The skull is so old that the tools and methods needed to
create such a piece just wouldn't have existed, not for a long time, it
is estimated that the time required to produce such a thing with the
tools of the times would have taken over 150 years, 24 hours a day,
without rest, if it could be done at all.
Add to this the fact that under a microscope
the Mitchell-Hedges skull shows no signs of processing, i.e. no
scratches or any other sign that it was in fact 'made' at all.
