Crystal skulls represent many things to many people. Museums around the world display a variety of crystal skull carvings that are considered to be ancient artifacts. However, there is great debate about the age and origin of the crystal skulls, which were first documented in the 19th and early 20th century. Labradorite is a member of the feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. The stone, usually gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white, is composed in aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red.
A stone of transformation, labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. This 10 lb skull has low-level labradorescence but is still stunning nonetheless; and is approximately 5.5x4.5 inches and weighs 7 lbs.
