Meaning and purpose of a Crystal Skull:
In addition to ancestor work and divination purposes, crystal skull carvings are specifically meant to be transmitters and receiver of energy.
The age of a skull can be equated not so much to the year it was carved, or the place of origin, but to the age of the crystal from which it was created, some crystals being thousands of years old, while others are more contemporary. Crystal skulls are most often associated with ancient Mesoamerican cultures, especially the Mayawhich takes us to the Mayan Long Calendar and related prophecies.
Many crystal skulls are designed at specific angles representing a union of sacred geometryand the nature of the quartz crystal used.
In metaphysics, crystal skulls are used for ceremonial work, healing, energy work, and enhancing one's psychic abilities. Used for healing, we go to themes of self awareness and creating balance to opening psychic abilities to be able to understand the nature of human creation and evolution.
