Pyrite Crystal Skull
Pyrite is an iron sulfide mineral. The name pyrite is derived from the Greek word for fire. Pyrite’s shiny metallic appearance has earned it the nickname “fool’s gold.” The ancient Incas used Pyrite as mirrors. It is found all over the world, but important deposits are in Italy, Spain, and Peru. Pyrite is said to enhance willpower, helping one to overcome bad habits. Look closely, this beautiful one of a kind egg carved specimen from Peru has interesting crevices filled with natural perfect cubic forms.
A crystal skull is a model of a human skull generally carved out of quartz crystal and other stones regarded as metaphysically powerful. A crystal skull is a metaphor for the belief that reality is a consciousness hologram through which we "virtually" experience life. Many of the crystal skulls are considered tools that awaken human consciousness. They vary in size from a few inches to the size of a human head, or bigger. Crystal skulls are most often associated with ancient Mesoamerican cultures.
