The crystal skulls are a number of human skull hardstone carvings made of clear or milky quartz rock, known in art history as "rock crystal", claimed to be pre-Columbian Mesoamerican artifacts by their alleged finders. However, none of the specimens made available for scientific study have been authenticated as pre-Columbian in origin. The results of these studies demonstrated that those examined were manufactured in the mid-19th century or later, almost certainly in Europe. Despite some claims presented in an assortment of popularizing literature, legends of crystal skulls with mystical powers do not figure in genuine Mesoamerican or other Native American mythologies and spiritual accounts.

What material are these skulls made out of? There are many crystals of rocks.
Plus the scientists don't have the latest technology, so they think it is impossible. But with 6,000 degree H2O implosion cold flame this would be highly possible. 6,000 degrees can melt stone and this is what they used to build the earthquake proof cities, like Machu piccu.
And if you knew of the latest Mayan codex to be translated, you would find that the Mayans got their technology from a returning Earth colonist from Space; an ancient astronaut.
And if you think that is crazy, there is a theory that Russia had already been to Moon in 1959. SO we went from being flightless to the Moon in less than 80 years. How long has the Human race been around?????
The trouble is we seem to keep having these ELEs and wiping out those who know how to build the machines etc. Then we have to start all over again.

Rose quartz is rarely in crystal form. It tends to form as blobs of red quartz.
I would guess that unlike the other skulls, the rose quartz skull in not crystalline.

Hey thanks for the info, I didn’t know ANY of that. I can’t believe they tried to put them all together. I’m still dumbfounded.
Great image btw.

Where did you get the 5 from?
Peuster, the lapidary, and his godfather Manfred Wild reconstructed the true story of these artifacts. In the past, a number of engravers and polishers from Idar-Oberstein received their training in the two centers of the rock-crystal industry, Milan and Paris. When they returned, they brought additional training to the technicians who had learned their trade in the German hinterlands. Around the end of the 19th century, the Hunsrück region had a reputation among insiders as an El Dorado for the crystal-cutting trade.
Documents confirm that crystal nodules from Brazil and Madagascar were being cut in Idar-Oberstein at the time in question. "And geochemical analyses show that the raw material for the legendary crystal skulls probably did in fact come from these two areas," says Rosendahl.
