Adventures Unlimited Press 2008 1931882762 / 9781931882767 Paperback New 
Bibliography. Background to the discovery and study of crystal skulls. What unknown hands carved these mysterious skulls perhaps over 12,000 years ago? Do they really have the power of life and death? In 1927, while searching for the lost civilisation of Atlantis, archaeologists discovered in the ruins of a Mayan city a perfect replica of a human skull, exquisitely carved and polished from a single piece of quartz crystal. It is clearly the product of a sophisticated civilisation - yet its age has been estimated at 12,000 years! A number of life-size crystal skulls are kwn to exist. Where did they come from? Observers have reported strange sounds, odours, and light effects emanating from crystal skulls. Crystal skulls are said to have caused violence, physical injury, and even death. Can it be that these uncanny objects are our link to mankind's dark, magical past? Are they messengers from another age - or another world? This is a fascinating compendium of current information on crystal skulls by two authors with first hand knowledge. 500gms weight; Color Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 240 pages
