The Mitchell-Hedges skull is the quintessential crystal skull, but there are many others. Much of the crystal skull lore speaks of there being a total
of thirteen in existence, all of them linked together in some mystical way. A strange kinship among crystal skulls is often noted, and not just
because of mineral or structural similarities -- some who claim sensitivity to the skulls' energies have observed that skulls seem to interact as if
they "know each other" when gathered at one place.
There is a pair of similar skulls known as the British Crystal Skull and the Paris Crystal Skull. Both are said to have been bought by mercenaries in
Mexico in the 1890s, possibly at the same time. They are so similar in size and shape that some have guessed that one was copied to produce the other.
In comparison to the Mitchell-Hedges skull, they are made of cloudier clear crystal and are not nearly as finely sculpted. The features are
superficially etched and appear incomplete, without discretely formed jawbones. The British Crystal Skull is on display at London's Museum of
Mankind, and the Trocadero Museum of Paris houses the Paris Crystal Skull.
