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.

The book details the way in which the crystal skulls came to their attention, and how they were able to see them and help to organise links between each of the people and institutions that currently own them. Within this journey, there is a great deal of soul-searching about what the skulls actually mean, as well as the ups and downs of authenticating their (individual) provenance. This is honest and fascinating, sometimes with apparent dead ends, but always with something learned about the philosophy behind the skulls themselves. The skulls are credited with ageless supernatural powers, - but it is not necessary to believe in that aspect of them to fall under the spell of their message.
Finally, this a book which allows us to explore very serious and immediate messages for our life today. The nature of the skulls themselves may not be resolved – or at least scientifically – but the journey through their examination brings us face to face with aspects of modern life that we can no longer afford to ignore. I found myself examining several unexpected links and tangents raised by the authors, and which I believe will be important for my personal way forward over the coming years.
