British Museum and Crystal Skulls

crystal skull

Although the crystal skull was said to have come from ancient Mexico, in fact it was acquired shortly before 1881 by the French antiquities dealer, Eugène Boban, when he was based in Paris. Five years later, having failed to sell the carving in Paris or Mexico City, Boban sold the skull to the New York jewellers Tiffany and Co, from whom more than a decade later, it was acquired by the British Museum. Analysis of inclusions in the quartz crystal indicates that the large block of material was obtained in the nineteenth century, probably from Brazil or Madagascar.

Mitchell Hedges Skull and Synergy, “Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.” ~Sherry Whitfield, guardian of Synergy
