Gemstone Skulls have been used by natural healers and shaman throughout the world. The earliest civilizations such as Mayans and Egyptians used them for their spiritual powers. Early cultures were aware that crystals carved into the form of a human skull influenced their conscious awareness on all levels.
The skull can be a representation of transformation - the death of the old, bringing about a rebirth. However, the human skull shape does not necessarily represent death itself as some may initially think, and is considered to be a representation of immortality and a portal to the spiritual dimensions.
When holding with and consciously connecting with a crystal skull, they can bring awareness within us to that which we need to release, and awaken within us that which is waiting to be born - assisting us to develop our life purpose and path, and to aid in spiritual growth and ascension.
