Sometimes it's a good idea to read the whole article Then one or two of you would have seen carborundum was used to make it..which as it states in the article..only came into use in the 20th century..

From the full article it said; "Professor Freestone said the work did not prove all crystal skulls were fakes, but it did cast doubt on the authenticity of other examples: "None of them have a good archaeological provenance and most appeared suspiciously in the last decades of the 20th Century. So we have to be sceptical," he explained. " So as these were proved to be fake, it does not mean all are fake.

I'm presently watching William Shatner's exploration on this... They refer to the obvious tool marks ,,,, but have they considered that these skulls have gone from museum to museum, expert after expert since they have been discovered back in 1881? .. No one observed how they were tested... what methods these "experts' used to validate their authenticity.. They could have marked the skulls trying to discover how they were made.. taken samples of it.. Some of the reports discussed the wonder of these skulls, of what possible technology that could have created these and to such accuracy... .. tha...

" It seems to be the fundamental problem with most of our topics...UFO's / Ghosts etc all...It can all be faked now using technology making real proof that much more difficult.
