Crystal Skulls in the News

Via Witchvox comes this article on crystal skulls, those mysterious supposedly Mesoamerican artifacts that have served as the basis for the new Indiana Jones movie.  The author, Jane Walsh, is an anthropologist at the Smithsonian who’s had an opportunity to study a number of skulls, reaching the conclusion that all the ones examined were 19th or 20th century fakes.

The one skull she hasn’t examined is the Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull, which is the more anatomically correct one with detachable jaw that appears in most pictures of these artifacts.  Still, there’s enough skullduggery – sorry – surrounding that one, with Mitchell-Hedges purchasing it from someone else, then omitting it from his revised autobiography, to suggest that something’s up there as well.  And that’s if you reject the lab reports.
