Hand Carved Black Obsidian Crystal Skull (5 cm)

Adding to basket... The item has been added

Crystal skulls have been called “one of the greatest mysteries of our world”. Many believe that “ancient” crystal skulls (over 1500 years old), mainly from Aztec and Mayan cultures, contain information important to us at this time of great change on the planet. In the Mayan calendar 2012 is the end/beginning of their calendar when a new age is said to be born. Some believe these ancient crystal skulls are helping us with this change with the information they hold.

There have been some beautiful and ancient crystal skulls discovered over time that have been certified as being from Aztec and Mayan cultures. One of the main ways they date these skulls is by examining in minute detail on the crystal surface as to how they were carved. By examining these on a micro level they can date the skull.

Some believe avidly that there are some skulls that have been left by extra-terrestrials containing information for us to decode. Also that meditating and communicating with the skulls both ancient or modern can reveal ancient and divine information. So if you wish to have around you or wear a crystal skull this is a symbol of connection with ancient cultures and also a connection to information held deep within.

This crystal skull is hand carved, so although quality is consistent you may notice very subtle differences between the photo and your skull.

Size of Skull: Sizing is pretty consistent with the dimension from the back of the head to the tip of the jaw being about 2 inches (5 cm).

More About Black Obsidian
The energy of obsidian is protective, guarding and secure, reminding us to protect ourselves against the harsh words or actions of others or from the stresses and strains of life. It's good to have around in a working environment where there may be stress. It can also be used as a tool to aid grounding, and for uniting body and spirit, bringing them into harmony and focus. Obsidian cuts through all that is superfluous and brings us right back to the truth of how we are and how the world around us truly is. It may promote deep soul healing and also help connect with past lives. Pieces of polished black obsidian or obsidian spheres are often used for scrying (seeing things supernaturally within a medium, such as crystal, for divination of past, present or future).

Staff Review by Brett Almond

I like these crystal skulls as they "look right" to me. Over the years I have seen so many skulls that I passed up stocking because the shape of the carving isn't attractive enough. The carving quality is high and the polish of the crystal very smooth although because of the nature of black obsidian, you will sometimes see minor thread lines on the surface caused by the natural stone.
