Originally I was going to make this article just two parts but it would take many pages to discuss the major crystal skulls that have emerged since the 1800's. So we will only mention the main crystalline skulls or heads which either are documented to be discovered or that there are rumors of ones which surfaced sometime in the 19th century. This means we will be writing a Part III for this article series in the near future. Below find a description of the following crystal skulls that are known of today:
a) The Paris Crystal Skull (found in the 1860's) - a small single piece clear quartz skull with primitive features and a hole cut from top to bottom that was probably discovered in a tomb in Mexico by grave robbers. Eventually the skull is purchase from a French antiquities dealer and donated to the Trocadero Museum in Paris in 1878. The crystal skull is moved after 2000 into the Musee du Quai Branly near the Eiffel Tower. It is said that this could be an Aztec skull that was used in a death ceremony with it was placed on a pole and this is why the hole exists.
b) The British Museum Crystal Skull (found in the 1860's) - human size, a single piece of clear quartz probably also found in a tomb in Mexico which eventually found itself in the hands of a soldier of fortune who eventually sold it to the same antiquities dealer as the Paris Skull. It is recorded a gentlemen living in New York City eventually buys the skull (it had been offered to various world museums who thought it was a fake) who then sells this crystalline skull to Tiffany's, a New York Jeweler. In 1897 Tiffany sells the skull to the British Museum in London who has it on display in the early part of 1898. Initially this skull was on display at the Museum of Man, a sister museum to the larger British Museum but in 2004, the British Museum Crystal Skull moves it to the main museum on Russell Street where it has been on public exhibition ever since. When the Indiana Jones film came out in 2008, the museum did some type of tests upon the skull, as the Musee du Quai Branly did with their skull, and both museums claimed their respective crystallinr skulls were fakes or made by modern carvers in the 19th century.
c) National Museum in Mexico City (on display in the 1860's or 1870"s) is a collection of small crystal skulls that were purchased from individuals that had them in their possession. Mexico is known as a country where many of the crystalline skulls are hidden in the ground. As we move to Part III of this article series, you will learn more about this.
d) Reliquary Cross Crystal Skull (received from a Church in the 1860's in Mexico) - this is a small clear quartz skull with a hole cut from top to bottom to hold a cross that is dated 1571 which is made from quartz with gold embedded into it that is held by the Redo family. At a crystal skull conference in Mexico City in 2009, we met Mrs. Redo who has been the guardian of this skull for many years. At that time she informed us that her skull was in secured storage in England and was going to be offered for sale. Not sure if this crystalline skull has been sold to a new owner however.
