Perhaps the most famous crystal skull in the world today is the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull, named after a real-life "Indiana Jones" of the 20th Century, British explorer and adventurer F. A. Mitchell-Hedges. The most distinguishable characteristic of this crystal skull is its extraordinary clarity and its detachable jaw, carved from the same piece of quartz as the rest of the skull.

This crystal skull was originally called the "Skull of Duun" after an associate on one of the expeditions to Lubaantun (Belize). This is where Anna Mitchell-Hedges, at the age of 16, claims to have found the crystal skull in the ruins of a Mayan pyramid. It was later called the "Skull of Doom" to supposedly ward off possible mal- intentioned encounters. The Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull has recently been renamed by the present caretaker, Bill Homann, as the "Skull of Love".

While its history may be somewhat controversial, the fact remains that the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull is a true so called "out-of-place-artifact" -meaning that despite the most evolved research, including extensive laboratory examination by Silicon Valley's Hewlett-Packard, no one has been able to prove it is a hoax.

Hewlett-Packard's research concluded that, because the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull was carved in disregard to the natural axis of the quartz itself (a process un-heard of in our modern time because the quartz is likely to shatter while carving), and because there are no marks from having used any metal tools, the Mitchell-Hedges skull technically should not exist.
