Artist representations of skulls were an important part of many ancient cultures including the Mayans and the Aztecs. In the late 1800s and early 1900s a handful of crystal skulls reportedly found in this area of South America were acquired by prominent museums throughout the world. Over the years the authenticity of these skulls has been highly debated, and some remain on display to this day.

An alien crystal skull is the primary artifact in the hit movie Indian Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Although the storyline is clearly fiction, the movie does provide some of the background of crystal skulls mentioned above.

In modern times carved skulls are prized for their striking lifelike designs and purported metaphysical properties.

Materials and Craftsmanship

Skulls are commonly crafted from a variety of materials including:
amethyst, quartz, tiger’s eye, obsidian, labradorite, bloodstone, malachite, citrine, fluorite, jasper, etc.

Each material offers a unique aesthetic and associated metaphysical properties.

The quality and craftsmanship of crystal skulls can vary widely. Some are cut from less desirable stone and crystal, while others feature less than desirable carvings that don't look quite natural.

We search through hundreds to find skulls that are crafted from the best pieces of crystal and of the highest quality craftsmanship.

Metaphysical Properties

Crystal skulls are known to have unique metaphysical properties that are enhanced or altered by the material the skull is crafted from. In general, crystal skulls are known to help block and prevent negative energy from others, alleviate difficult emotions like anxiety and depression, and protect your natural spiritual energy.

The choice of material brings its own metaphysical properties to the table. For instance, amethyst is said to balance emotions, calm the mind, boost the immune system, and improve spiritual intuition. Carving these powerful crystals into skulls is thought to increase the potency of these properties.

Choosing a Crystal Skull

There is no wrong way to choose a skull, but there are a few usual paths. If you’re interested in the metaphysical properties the material used in crafting the skull is going to be an important consideration. A little research on metaphysical properties of gemstones and minerals would be a good starting place in choosing the perfect skull for you.

If you're mostly interested in the aesthetics, we suggest choosing a skull that features the color and carving that most appeals to you.

Another important consideration is the size of the skull. They are available in a wide variety of sizes from just a few inches to many times larger than natural size. All of them are beautiful works of art, and size is generally dependent on personal taste.
