The story of the Mitchell-
Hedges skull's discovery
was a hoax, but its origins
remain a mystery.


The Mitchell-Hedges Skull:
King of the Crystal Skulls

The most widely celebrated and mysterious crystal skull is the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, for at least two good reasons. First, it is very similar in form to an actual human skull, even featuring a fitted removable jawbone. Most known crystal skulls are of a more stylized structure, often with unrealistic features and teeth that are simply etched onto a single skull piece.

Second, it is impossible to say how the Mitchell-Hedges skull was constructed. From a technical standpoint, it appears to be an impossible object which today's most talented sculptors and engineers would be unable to duplicate.

The discovery of this baffling artifact is a controversial matter. It was brought into prominence by British explorer F. A. Mitchell-Hedges, who claimed that his daughter unearthed it in 1924. Mitchell-Hedges led an expedition in the ancient Mayan ruins of Lubaantun, in Belize (then British Honduras), searching for evidence of Atlantis.

The story goes that his daughter, Anna, was rummaging inside a structure believed to have once been a temple, when she found the beautifully carved cranium of the crystal skull. It was lacking its jawbone, but the matching mandible was found three months later, some 25 feet away from the first discovery. Mitchell-Hedges claimed that he refused to take the skull away, and offered it to the local priests, but the Mayans gave the skull back to him as a gift upon his departure.

It now appears that this tale of the skull's discovery was entirely fabricated. Mitchell-Hedges apparently purchased the skull at an auction at Sothebys in London, in 1943. This has been verified by documents at the British Museum, which had bid against Mitchell-Hedges for the crystal artifact.

This revelation is consistent with the known history of Mitchell-Hedges's involvement with the skull. There are no photographs of the skull among those that were taken during his Lubaatun expedition, and there is no documentation of Mitchell-Hedges displaying or even acknowledging the skull prior to 1943.

The skull remains in the possession of the octogenarian Anna Mitchell-Hedges. She resides in Canada and displays the skull on frequent tours. Anna has maintained for all these years that she discovered the skull, even though there is reason to doubt that she was present at the Lubaatun expedition at all.

The Mitchell-Hedges skull is made of clear quartz crystal, and both cranium and mandible are believed to have come from the same solid block. It weighs 11.7 pounds and is about five inches high, five inches wide, and seven inches long. Except for slight anomalies in the temples and cheekbones, it is a virtually anatomically correct replica of a human skull. Because of its small size and other characteristics, it is thought more closely to resemble a female skull -- and this has led some to refer to the Mitchell-Hedges skull as a "she."

The Mitchell-Hedges family loaned the skull to Hewlett-Packard Laboratories for extensive study in 1970. Art restorer Frank Dorland oversaw the testing at the Santa Clara, California, computer equipment manufacturer, a leading facility for crystal research. The HP examinations yielded some startling results.

Researchers found that the skull had been carved against the natural axis of the crystal. Modern crystal sculptors always take into account the axis, or orientation of the crystal's molecular symmetry, because if they carve "against the grain," the piece is bound to shatter -- even with the use of lasers and other high-tech cutting methods.

To compound the strangeness, HP could find no microscopic scratches on the crystal which would indicate it had been carved with metal instruments. Dorland's best hypothesis for the skull's construction is that it was roughly hewn out with diamonds, and then the detail work was meticulously done with a gentle solution of silicon sand and water. The exhausting job -- assuming it could possibly be done in this way -- would have required man-hours adding up to 300 years to complete.

Under these circumstances, experts believe that successfully crafting a shape as complex as the Mitchell-Hedges skull is impossible; as one HP researcher is said to have remarked, "The damned thing simply shouldn't be."

Hey everyone,

Still thinking it would be interesting if the skulls were the keys to something. I feel that they would almost have to be. Whether it be a stargate-type device or hidden structure of some kind. Surely an expert has come up with a theory on this.

The Blue Skull is a Myth Whisper. It would be an interesting find! There are many different colors in the various skulls. I was in chat last night and spoke for a bit with ArchAngel. He brought something to my attention about the Star of David. Check out this link!

http://www.rgbworld.com/color.html

Anyway I am forming a new hypothesis on the skull in light of new information on sound and color. I will let you know smile.gif However I still think they are keys. Maybe we will solve this mystery yet. If anyone else has and thoughts please come foward.




Peace!

More on the Crystal skulls…

I recall stories about there being 13 Quartz skulls around the world that originated in Atlantis, and that they were used for special spiritual ceremonies.

QUOTE
Long ago, ancient Atlantis was visited by extraterrestrial races that shared spiritual knowledge and technology with the Atlantean people. The exchanges included 12 crystal skulls that provided access to off planet reservoirs of knowledge. An astrological altar was constructed of four base metals (copper, bronze, gold and silver).The circular altar was divided into quadrants, and aligned in four directions. The skulls were placed in threes, according to the astronomical location of the star or planet holding the information. When all 12 skulls were placed in the circle, an etheric 13th skull would manifest in the center of the ring, completing the circuit…. The skulls were utilized for thousands of years, assisting humans in communicating with other races and drawing divine knowledge from the universal akashic record. As the Atlantean epoch came to a close, some of the skulls were redistributed within Earths field, and the others removed due to the coming dark age and descent of human conciousness
http://www.bryandeflores.com/crystalskulls.html

QUOTE
Another theory we have uncovered discussing that the crystal skulls are connected to people who live in the Inner Earth. This idea presents the theory that our earth is Hollow with a small central sun at its core and openings at the poles. Gravity, which is located at the center of the Earth's crust, 800 miles thick, hold objects and people to the inner or outer surface. Supposedly, 13 master Crystal Skulls hold the genetic coding of Twelve Inner Earth Tribes and the thirteenth or central skull represents the family of these tribes.

British Museum skull is a fake
By Flora Stubbs, Evening Standard
7 January 2005

A crystal skull once thought to be an Aztec death symbol with mystical powers has been proved to be a fake.

The near-life size skull, at the British Museum, acquired a cult following of New Age devotees who thought it was one of 13 skulls that when brought together could predict human destiny.

But scientists said today that its surface was cut and polishedby a rotating wheel - technology not known to the Aztecs of ancient Mexico.

Experts now think the skull was cut from a piece of Brazilian rock crystal by a European jeweller some time in the 19th century and sold to a collector of Central American relics, who then passed it off as genuine. It was sold to the British Museum in 1897 by New York jeweller Tiffany, which is thought to have acquired it from a French collector of Mexican curios.

Professor Ian Freestone of the University of Cardiff said: "When you look at genuine Aztec rock crystals, they have a much gentler polish. This has the hard, polished look you get with modern equipment."

The "British" Crystal Skull

Asingle piece clear quartz skull, held in the British Museum of Man, in London, England since 1898, purportedly found or bought by a soldier of fortune in Mexico in the late 1890's. This skull is more cloudy than the Mitchell-Hedges and has an elongated back of the head. The quartz comprising this skull is very clear and there is a tool mark found on this skull. OLD

The mystery of the British Museum's crystal skull is solved. It's a fake

By Steve Connor, Science Editor

07 January 2005

Some say it has mystical powers derived from its ancient origins as an Aztec symbol of death. Others believe it is one of 13 crystal skulls that will foretell the destiny of humankind when brought together in the same place.

Whatever legends are attached to the crystal skull of the British Museum in London, one fact stands out. No other object in the museum's extensive collection has acquired such a cult following from New Age devotees.

Now, however, science can finally set the record straight and, in doing so, shatter one of the most enduring myths of an object steeped in historical fantasy. The crystal skull is a fake.

A detailed analysis of the skull's surface has revealed that it was cut and polished with the sort of rotating wheel common in the jewellery houses of 19th-century Europe but absent in pre-Columbian America.

Historians and scientists believe that the skull was cut from a piece of Brazilian rock crystal by a lapidary in Europe, possibly Germany, and then sold to collectors as a relic from the ancient Aztec civilisation of Mexico.

Doubts about the authenticity of the crystal skull - a near life-sized sculpture - first surfaced more than a decade ago. Tests have now confirmed that it is almost certainly not a genuine Aztec object, said Professor Ian Freestone of the University of Wales at Cardiff and a former head of scientific research at the British Museum in London.

"We are not at all sure that there is a rock source in Mexico that would produce a rock crystal of this size. There is strong circumstantial evidence that it comes from Brazil," Professor Freestone said. "When you look at known, genuine Aztec rock crystals, they have a much gentler polish. This has the harsh, polished look you get with modern equipment," he said.

These two findings alone do not prove a fraud, but when scientists began to investigate the surface of the skull under a powerful electron microscope the doubts about the skull's origins began to be confirmed.

The scientists took impressions of the skull with the same flexible resin used by dentists to take precise impressions of teeth. This revealed minute rotary scratch marks around the eye sockets, teeth and cranium and was clear evidence that the sculpture had been cut and polished with a wheeled instrument - and the Aztecs never used the wheel.

"The evidence coming together suggests that it was late. To me the case is overwhelmingly against it being of earlier, Aztec origin," Professor Freestone said.

Further work by an archivist, Jane Walsh of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, points the finger of suspicion at Eugene Boban, a 19th-century collector of pre-Columbian artefacts who appears to have been instrumental in selling at least two crystal skulls purporting to be ancient.

Not much is known about Boban except that he was a French citizen who spent more than two decades of his life in Mexico, Dr Walsh said.

Documents unearthed by Dr Walsh reveal that it was Boban who had acquired the skull that was eventually sold in 1897 by Tiffany's, the New York jeweller, to the British Museum. She also found that it was Boban who some years earlier had tried to sell the same skull to the Smithsonian. And it was Boban who sold a similar crystal skull to a collector who later donated it to the Musée de l'Homme in Paris, where it still is today.

For Boban to come into possession of two crystal skulls purporting to be of pre-Columbian origin may be a coincidence too far, especially in the light of the new scientific evidence suggesting a fake.

Colin McEwan of the British Museum said that the skull, which is going on display this Christmas in the museum's Wellcome Trust Gallery, has been the subject of some peculiar rituals over the years when it was in the Museum of Mankind. "We had people going into seances and talking in tongues," Dr McEwan said.

One native American legend tells of the existence of 13 such skulls which are supposed to contain information about the origins and destiny of humankind. At a time of great need all the skulls would be rediscovered so that they can be brought together in one place to reveal their secrets, so the legend goes.

Interestingly, there are now about a dozen large crystal skulls known to exist in the world, and all but three of them are in private hands.

Some of those who believe in these legends have accused the museum of trying to hide the skull from public view, or of "trapping" the cosmic energy contained in it, Dr McEwan said. "We've had extensive petitions claiming that damage has been done to the object because it has feelings, it's imprisoned, it's not allowed to fulfil its destiny, and so forth."

Joshua Shapiro, an author who believes the skull has mystical properties, said it was difficult for him to comment on the findings. "It sounds like they wish to discredit the significance of their crystal skull and the possibility that it could have been carved or fashioned by the Meso-American people in Mexico where it was purportedly discovered," he said. "These questions might not even be as important as what this crystal skull represents within this field of study... Even if its origins or who made it are unknown, it helped to give people in the world an awareness that such objects do exist, and that they are revered by the indigenous people in the world."

Professor Freestone accepts that the latest findings are unlikely to convince those who believe that the crystal skull is anything but a fake. "As soon as we say that one part of it has been polished in a certain way, someone else says it's because it's been touched up later on. It's hard to make a cast-iron case, to be honest," he admitted. "You've only got to look at the shroud of Turin to see that some people will be hard to convince even in the face of overwhelming evidence."

Nevertheless, even if it is a fake, the skull in London still commands a lot of interest from the public. As Professor Freestone says: "Whatever you think of it, it's a fantastic object. Even if it was made in Germany at the end of the 19th century."

Omphaloskepsis, thanks for the report.

I agree guest, I doubt that they are all fakes.

We're not supposed to know that highly advanced civilizations actually did exist on Earth. With elaborate plumbing systems, agriculture, astronomy, medicine and and even surgeries way beyond the europeans.

Before pale face who speaks with forked tongue arrived in the new world, everyone was just plain savages. Suuuure!

My theory is pale face had a great war with earths dark skinned peoples and destroyed their civilizations and knowledge over 10,000 years ago. The Sphinx enclosure was built by this advanced race.

The Baalbek stones of Lebanon also came from this highly advanced race.

Then they either went underground, the moon, or maybe even Mars and rebuilt their numbers and re-emerged about 3500-3600 years ago to begin conquering the entire globe. Drop by drop.

Mind you, it's just my theory, I could be wrong.

I also believe we have a good white race as evidenced by many of the people here.

And you can easily see the evidence of the evil white race on the internet....
...Especially in forums, in chatrooms as well as virus laden and sick porn or S&M websites.

My experience has been that the marshmallow people were usually the nicest folk, while the really tall and sometimes thin folks were very cruel beings indeed.

"This revealed minute rotary scratch marks around the eye sockets, teeth and cranium

and was clear evidence that the sculpture had been cut and polished
with a wheeled instrument."

Here is an interesting story.
Recently there were a group of fantastic PreColumbian artifacts smuggled into Wa state.
The rogues were also apparently cocaine dealers.
A university Spanish professor collector I know,
totally unaware of the circumstances,
was invited to see and purchase possibly some of the artifacts.
He said that when he looked at these specimens, '
they were so awesomely perfect and pristine, that they had to be fake.
So he passed.

Later a few months down the road,
he was invited to a very special Mexican-American government
"repatriation of artifacts",
complete with FBI officials who busted the smugglers,
high American and Mexican officials etc,
and as he was introduced to the Mexican ambassador,
they together were led to a table exhibiting the stolen artifacts.

He said that he nearly shit his pants ,
as sitting on the table ,
were the EXACT same artifacts he had been offered ,
by the spurious contact,
that he thought were fake !

bustingupNEW3.gif

Now to weave the story into the
"minute rotary scratch marks around the eye sockets, teeth and cranium.."
fake crystal skull

Around the same time as all this apparent durg dealer-precolombian artifact business was going on,
I caught an ad in the newspaper about PreColombian items.
So I drove out a house 50 miles away, to see this large stone head,
that was supposedly Mexican.
Well sure enough,
the damn thing looked real good . but with some reservations with the
sharpness of the eyes., lips...
He had several smaller pottery items as well that looked authentic to me.
So I pressed him on what he knew about it all,
where he got it,
feeling him out for stolen goods, etc,
and he came clean about the item at least.
He had a laboratory analysis of the thing perfomed within the last 6 months
and had papers, etc.
Long story short,
the lab analysis stated that the general surface of the face was indeed old aged tool markings consistent with antiquity,
but that there was evidence of reacrved incision of later date with more modern tools.
In essence they slightly reoutlined the facial features, like the eyes,
with later metal files. .
No , I did not buy it.
But I loved it !
It was a killer piece.

So I suppose the crystal skull should,
if a fake,
show modern "rotary scartch marks" or modern metal instrument marks as well,
over the entire surface of the skull.
