Are the Crystal Skulls for Real?

By | May 20, 2008

This weekend Indiana Jones will save the world with the help of the Crystal Skulls. If you are like me you may be wondering are there real Crystal Skulls? If they are, what does it mean?

There are Crystal Skulls. Most of those discovered have been made of quartz crystal. There is one in China that is made of Jade. The skulls discovered range in size and to some degree shape as well. Some are small while others are the actual size of the human head.

One of the most mysterious is the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, which was found at Lubaabtum, in Belize. In 1927, F. Mitchell-Hedges, traveler and adventurer, was at the top of a ruined temple at the Mayan city. His adopted daughter discovered a fine carved crystal skull. Even though that is the story of the Mitchell-Hedges’ skull, other evidence has it that it was bought at a sale in 1943. Is it of Mayan origin? It’s thought to be.

This wasn’t the first Crystal Skull discovered, although it may be the most unusual. Skulls began turning up in museums during the mid to late 19th century. It’s reported that they came from sites in Mexico and possibly linked to other Mayan sites.

Are these skull of ancient manufacture or more recent? There hasn’t been proof to either theory. Are they magical? Again no one knows. The one thing that is agreed upon no one know how they were made or for what purpose.

Since I haven’t seem the movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull I can only guess how the facts and theories of Crystal Skulls might be featured in the movie. Along with many others, I am looking forward to the discovery.
