The most famous crystal skull is the Mitchell-Hedges “Skull Of Doom,” allegedly discovered by a 17-year old Anna Mitchell-Hedges in 1924 while accompanying her adoptive father on an excavation of the ancient Mayan city of Lubaantun in Belize, where the elder Mitchell-Hedges believed he would find the ruins of Atlantis.
The Skull of Doom is made of pure rock crystal and according to scientists it must have taken over 300 years, generation after generation working all the days of their lives, patiently rubbing down with sand an immense block of rock crystal until finally the perfect Skull emerged.
It is at least 3,600 years old and according to legend was used by the High Priest of the Maya when performing esoteric rites.
