What material are these skulls made out of? There are many crystals of rocks.
A variety of crystal skulls have been discovered over the years. Despite efforts to combine 13 of these skulls in one place no evidence of the knowledge said to be contained within them has ever been found. It is now believed that at least some of the skulls were created as recently as the 19th century.
"The skulls were kept inside a pyramid in a formation of tremendous power known as the Ark. The Ark was comprised of the twelve skulls from each of the sacred planets kept in a circle, with the thirteenth skull, the largest, placed in the center of this formation. This thirteenth skull represents the collective consciousness of all the worlds. It connects up the knowledge of all the sacred planets.

German newspaper website, Bild, reported on the 6th of March 2011 of the discovery of the 13th crystal scull. The headline reads “Kristallschädel von SS-Führer Heinrich Himmler entdeckt?” which roughly translates to ‘Crystal Scull (of) SS Fuhrer Himmler discovered’.
Below, it seems, is a direct translation of the article. ...........
While in Dorland's care the skull came to the attention of writer Richard Garvin, at the time working at an advertising agency where he supervised Hewlett-Packard's advertising account. Garvin made arrangements for the skull to be examined at HP's crystal labs at Santa Clara, where it was subjected to several tests. The labs determined only that it was not a composite (as Dorland had supposed), but that it was fashioned from a single crystal of quartz. The lab test also established that the lower jaw had been fashioned from the same left-handed growing crystal as the rest of the skull. No investigation was made by HP as to its method of manufacture or dating.
As well as the traces of mechanical grinding on the teeth noted by Dorland, Mayanist archaeologist Norman Hammond reported that the holes (presumed to be intended for support pegs) showed signs of being made by drilling with metal. Anna Mitchell-Hedges refused subsequent requests to submit the skull for further scientific testing.

You people will believe anything if it sounds interesting and has some sort of mystical adgenda.
The so called " Crystal Skulls" are fake. The first skull that was found in Maya was proven to be a fake.

I've always found the subject of the Crystal skulls fascinating. I'll have to research this claim. I know that more than 13 Crystal Skulls have been discovered already, though most of them aren't near as "flawless" as the Mitchell-Hedges.
I own one myself. Of course mine is sitting on a bookcase and filled with vodka.
