These skulls are creepy, and they've been dated to 1000's of years ago, but no one knows who or what tools made them.

It's gotta be hard to tell how old something made from glass or crystal is...

cool. i thnk dis is a mayan skull which has an unusual feature of bending light thru eye sockets. Even modern techniques find great difficulty in doin dis. Im guessin it was made against the natural axis of the crystal which usually will cause it crack.

simply amazing - 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."

does crystal wear very good with water? they could have use a high concentration/pressure of water to do that. but then they would have to have advanced mechaniics etc...

That isnt an actual human skull I think. All the teeth are squarely even and the location of the eyesockets are all wrong. That thing is definately man-made.

I saw a documentry on them where SEM microanalysis revealed a surface unworked by anything.Today it would be impossible to reproduce. So yes Viridis you are correct.

Who can prove it's manmade? Certainly no man can make this not even today, I think it's made by extraterrestials or with their help.
