The Crystal Skull was found in an ancient Mayan temple in Lubaatun, British Honduras (now Belize) in 1927. It quickly became known as “the skull of doom” and it was linked to numerous deaths of those who were associated with its discovery.
The mystery about this crystal is how did it come to be? It was discovered in a 1,000 year old temple. It is hand-carved out of rare quartz crystal. It stands 5 inches high and weighs 11.5 pounds. Modern day scientists have found no trace of the use of any sort of modern day tools.
It’s unlikely that it’s any sort of fraud, but we are still baffled about how it was created. Did the Mayans really have such advanced technology to create something so pristine and perfect? Or does it go beyond the boundaries of scientific explanation?
