Crystal skulls are crystals or stones that have been fashioned into the shape of (usually) a human skull. Originally, crystal skulls were carved almost exclusively from Quartz, nowadays you can find a wide variety of crystals and stones carved into this unique shape.
This skull has been carved from Bloodstone which is a variety of chalcedony (a cryptocrystalline mixture of Quartz), a green quartz or green jasper flecked with red jasper. Every specimen carved from Bloodstone has a unique appearance as it is an incredibly varied stone.
This particular skull has been carved from a gorgeous piece of Bloodstone, you can see a great variation in the dark, dull green next to the vibrant red Jasper flecks, with portions completely opaque blending into translucent light green. The detail carved into this piece adds a huge amount of character, and this piece is the perfect size for holding comfortably in your hand. Great as a gift, or as a home decor item for a bookshelf!
Just as the name suggests, Bloodstone has been used since ancient times as a blood cleanser and detoxifier for the liver and kidneys. It is thought to give courage and enhance the decision making process, making it a great stone for soldiers, police officers, EMTs, and anyone going into confrontational situations where you need to think on your feet.
