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.

Actually modern techniques find this quite easy to do, in fact they did it. These crystal skulls have been thouroughly debunked by several authorities and the family of the "explorer" who "found" them has admitted the hoax and that it was, in the words of The Jerk, "a profit deal."

Hoax or real, it's beautiful. Who wouldn't take this if offered? Or, more accurately, if they could afford it?

No mrchimp11 your geting siO2 based crystal confused with carbon allotrope diamond. Even if it were made of diamond your "process" is implausible. EcurtR =disinformation I suspect.

I sthis a different skull to the last one, it seems that the last was more mayan (or at least Mayan influence) whereas this one looks a little more modern.... Maybe its just me
