Crystal skull of Lubaantum

“…a human size and shaped, clear quartz skull, 11.7 lbs, two pieces with a separate jaw, discovered in Lubaantum (now Belize) in 1924 in the ruins of a Mayan City by F. A. Mitchell-Hedges. This skull is currently near Toronto, Canada with Anna Mitchell-Hedges, his adopted daughter. The skull is an almost absolute copy of our own human skull except it is circular in the temples and has a handle like form in the cheekbones. When the skull is not activated, it is clear as glass. ANCIENT” – an opinion of Joshua Shapiro, the Crystal Skull Explorer. The most known crystal skull is called the Mitchell-Hedges Skull. It’s particularly famous because it’s very similar in form to a modern human skull. Scientists still do not know how the skull was constructed and who made it. The Mitchell-Hedges skull is made of clear quartz crystal and both cranium and mandible appear to originate from the same solid block. It is almost an anatomically accurate replica of a human skull. The cranial measurements of other crystal skulls are definitely not the same as present human skulls.

In recent years, skulls have been discovered in Asia, Europe, and South America. The Hewlett Packard laboratories examined the object. Researchers found that the skull had been carved against the natural axis of the crystal. Also they could find no microscopic scratches on the crystal which would indicate it had been carved with metal instruments. Simply even with the use of lasers and other high-tech cutting methods we are not able to duplicate these crystal sculptures. According to the experts – crafting a shape as complex as the Mitchell-Hedges skull is impossible. As one of the Hewlett Packard researchers said: “The damned thing simply shouldn’t be.” But unfortunately it does…

Fragments from Hewlett-Packard Research:

The Mohs scale of hardness for Natural Rock Crystal is 7. Tests on the Mitchell-Hodges skull were conducted by Jack Kusters, former engineering mamager for quartz devices, and Charles Adams, who watched the tests, had a combined fifty (50) years of experience working with crystal (Morton, 41), in late 1970, in Santa Clara, California. Initially the team was NOT convinced that the crystal skull was composed of proper quartz. Although it looked like quartz to the naked eye. Special tests were conducted to discover what the famous Mitchell-Hodges skull was made of. The skull was lowered into Benzyl alcohol of exactly the same density and with the same refractive index as pure quartz. As the skull was lowered it seemed to disappear. This normally is proof that it was pure quartz and light showed veins meaning it was of natural origin.
