These skulls were probably owned by SS leader Heinrich Himmler.
As the magazine "Mysteries" reports, the Swiss journalist Luc BÃ¼rgin found the skull (12 kilograms, up 17.5 centimeters, 21 centimeters deep) in the attic of his Bavarian informants hidden in an old wooden box. "A custom-made, which in turn was located in an old, worn-out leather knapsack."
Twelve of these crystal skulls are known, this would now be the secret thirteenth.
Apparently they are from the remains of the civilizations of Central and South America, where the priests of the Maya or Aztecs with them religious rituals performed.
According to legend, if all 13 are brought together on December 21st 2012 when the Mayan calendar ends and the world is scheduled for doom, the skulls create a new age of light and prevent the apocalypse.
Moreover, in the possession of Bavaria: A highly explosive Nazi list!
On the unknown, four-page paper to find 35 valuable art treasures, by order of the top Nazi leadership of Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler shortly before the end of Augsburg in the south Bohemian Strakonice (Sudetenland) that should be transported, included Item 14: The Crystal Skull. "263-2 FRSs collection Rahn, No. 25 592, leather case, crystal skull, colonies, South America."
According to the list the skull belonged to the researcher Otto Rahn, who went on a quest for the Holy Grail for the Nazis and was killed under unclear circumstances in 1939. The inventory number 25 592 on the list was also on the wooden box.
If the skull that the informant allegedly bought three years ago, "for the price of a sandwich," is it actually real?
How much truth is in the legend of the crystal skulls is controversial. Scientists have questioned the authenticity of the crystal skull from the British Museum.
Researchers plan to investigate the skull with an electron microscope to determine if, the skulls were indeed produced by the ancient Maya, or if the skulls were made in the 19th century by skilled craftsman.
European researchers allege that grinding centers of that time, such as Idar-Oberstein, are the origin of the skulls, but doubts remain forever, because crystal arrangements can not be dated exactly.
It may be that the secret skull is anything but magical, but perhaps it would make a nice decorative piece from Idar-Oberstein.
