As reported by the magazine "Mysteries", the Swiss journalist Luc found the skull (12 kilograms, 17.5 cm high, 21 cm deep) Bürgin in the attic of his Bavarian informants - hidden in an old wooden box. "A custom-built, which in turn was in an old, shabby knapsack leather."
This Find enables historian in turmoil! For centuries, the mysterious skulls give up puzzles.
Twelve such crystal skulls are known, this would be the secret 13th now. They supposedly come from the remains of the civilizations of Central and South America, where the priests of the Maya or Aztec with them carried out religious rituals. According to legend, all 13 to create a new age of light together on December 21, 2012, when the Mayan calendar ends and the world to come to an end, and thus prevent the Apocalypse.
Also in the possession of Bavaria: A highly explosive Nazi list!
35 Valuable art treasures that should be transported on the orders of the top Nazi leaders Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler shortly before the end of the war of Augsburg in the South Bohemian Strakonice (Sudetenland) can be found on the unknown, four-page paper. Including point 14: the Crystal Skull. "263-2 FRSS collection Rahn, no. 25592, leather, Crystal Skull, colonies, South America."
According to list of skull once belonged to the researcher Otto Rahn, who went for the Nazis in the search for the Holy Grail and 1939 came under unexplained circumstances. And the inventory number 25592 on the list was found on the wooden box.
These skulls are believed to be between 5000 and 35000 years old. During early expeditions, archaeologists were told by locals that the skulls possessed magical powers and healing properties. However, people were unsure as to where they came from, or even why they existed.
Historians and social anthropologists decided to find out more about the strange skulls. Very soon, they came across an ancient Indian legend saying that there had been thirteen crystal skulls of the Goddess of Death; they had been kept separately from each other under the strict control of pagan priests and special warriors.
Searches for more skulls started; some of them were found in museums and some in private collections not only in the USA, but in Mexico, Brazil, France, Mongolia, and in Tibet.
There were more than 13 skulls found. However, not all of them were as perfect as Mitchell-Hedges- was. Very likely, those were just later attempts to create something similar to the original skulls that were believed to have been gifts by God to the people.
Art critic Frank Dordland even addressed Hewlett-Packard, the famous company that specialized in crystal oscillators at that time, for a competent examination of several crystal sculls.
The results were shocking not only for the scientist himself. The research by Hewlett-Packard in 1964 in a special laboratory revealed that the skull had been made long before the first civilizations appeared in that part of America where the skull was found. In addition, rock crystal of such perfect quality couldn't be found in that area. The most amazing thing was that the ancient skull weighing 5.13 kg, 203.4 mm long and 125.4 wide had been made of a whole crystal. This fact contradicted the laws of physics.
Hewlett-Packard experts say that the skull had been made regardless of all laws and rules. They surprisingly said: "The damned thing can't exist at all. Those who had done it had no idea of crystallography or of fibre-optics. The people completely ignored the axis of symmetry, which was to prevent the crystal from splitting during processing. It is strange why it didn't split at that!" No matter how unbelievable it may seem, the strange crystal skull can be seen in the Museum of American Indians.

What material are these skulls made out of? There are many crystals of rocks.

There's a thread somewhere about a plant in the Americas that softens stone... You can find stone walls in South-central America that seem too perfect to be true. Ideas were floated around that this plant was used to shape these skulls... Perhaps preventing such splitting.
Researchers found that the skull had been carved against the natural axis of the crystal. Modern crystal sculptors always take into account the axis, or orientation of the crystal's molecular symmetry, because if they carve "against the grain," the piece is bound to shatter -- even with the use of lasers and other high-tech cutting methods.

Excellent find, OP!
Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there are 12 that form a circle with the 13th in the center?
I don't know whether to rejoice or shiver if they decide to put them all together as in the ancient texts.

Edit to add: found a link to a thread from 2009 claiming they have all been found..www.abovetopsecret.com...edit on 14-5-2011 by TechVampyre because: (no reason given)
