13 crystal Maya skulls will save the world
Ancient tribe of Maya passed on a legend that tells of the 13 crystal
sculls able to save the world from a terrible catastrophe.
Once in 1927 a British archeologist Mitchell-Hedges was able to confirm
the Mayan legend through his own discovery: when the man was clearing
debris from atop a ruined temple at the ancient Mayan city of Lubaantum
his daughter found one such skull made out of pure quartz.
Later a few more of these mysterious artifacts came into possession of
people in different parts of the world. Places where the human sized
ancient crystal skulls have been found are generally various ruins and
many are guarded by descendants of indigenous people throughout the
The skulls have mystical qualities: they can bring their owners into the
state of hypnosis, cause people to hallucinate or have dreams about
ancient Indians. Some say they can even make wishes come true.
According to the Crystal Links research a conservator and restorer Frank
Dorland studying one of the skulls discovered that it had zygomatic
arches acting as light pipes, using principles similar to modern optics,
to channel light from the base of the skull to the eye sockets.
The eye sockets in turn were miniature concave lenses that also
transferred light from a source below, into the upper cranium. Finally,
in the interior of the skull was a ribbon prism and tiny light tunnels,
by which objects held beneath the skull could be magnified and
brightened. As a result, when placed upon a source of light, the skull
acquired glowing eyes and appeared to be on fire.
Yet the origins and the manufacturing of the skulls remain inexplicable.
World Mystery Research Center reports that several of ancient skulls
have been brought to Hewlett-Packard, located in the San Francisco area.
Hewlett- Packard, long known as a manufacturer of printers and computer
systems, has one of the most extensive scientific and crystal research
laboratories in the world.
The scientist working at HP, who had a chance to work with some of these
ancient crystal skulls were hard pressed to explain how a primitive
culture could have carved crystal into such precise shapes and
especially against the natural axis of the crystal without the use of
Thus far, four types of ancient quartz skulls are known including clear
quartz, amethyst (purple), rose quartz (pink) and smoky quartz (from
grey to black). It may be that these magic gifts of the ancestors would
assist humanity in surviving the doomsday of 2012, as was foretold by
the enigmatic Maya civilization.
