Gemstone skulls. Gemstone skulls have been popular and mysterious for many cultures since many decades. The skulls have a very diverse meaning. Celtic skulls symbolize Time, Power, creation, initiation and concentration. Celtic culture believes that the skull is a seat of power and strength. Some texts refer to the skull as the seat of our soul. Archaeological findings tell us that the ancient Celts offered the skulls to sacred wells. The skull is universally seen as the symbol of life and death. More recently, the skull has been linked to death and embracing our mortality. In times long gone, the skull sometimes stood for life. Skulls and skeletons are the symbol for the Mexican holiday, the day of the dead. The skull and crossbones is a popular symbol for pirates and poison. Some healers use skulls to see visions of the present, past and future. Rose quartz, rock crystal, rhodonite, aventurine and hematite. The crystal skulls are works of art cut from quartz or rock crystal in the shape of human skulls. These emerged in the second half of the nineteenth century and were originally assigned to various pre-Columbian civilizations. Research in the 1990s, including using a scanning tunneling microscope, showed that at least some of these skulls are forgeries. These were made with grinding instruments that were only developed in the second half of the nineteenth century. There is a strong suspicion that a number of the crystal skulls were commissioned by the French trader Eugène Boban and sold by him. One of the most famous skulls is the Mitchell-Hedges skull. It is said to have been found by the British adventurer F. A. Mitchell-Hedges in a room under the ruins of Lubaantun in Belize. He later turned out to have bought this skull privately at the London auction house Sotheby's. His wife gave the reason that he had only given the skull to someone as collateral and bought it back through Sotheby's. After the death of Anna Mitchell-Hedges, the skull came into the possession of Bill Homann. In the 1990s, it turned out that the Mitchell-Hedges skull was also a forgery. In the meantime, the necessary hypes and legends have arisen around the crystal skulls. Because of their so-called location, they are said to have been manufactured centuries ago by the Maya, the Aztec or an even older pre-Columbian civilization. Also, these would have psychic abilities and you should never look them straight in the eye. According to another legend, they are of extraterrestrial origin. There are said to be thirteen of them on Earth. Once reunited, they would share their knowledge with humanity. Even today, the skulls still play a role in part of the New Age community.
