This crystal has been charged with subtle energy from the Ancient Crystal Skull known as SYNERGY.
This is an Extra Extra Large Quartz Crystal Skull, carved in the Mayan Shaman style, with a light smoky tint. This style is RETIRED, so I only have a limited amount available in any stone. I never had many with a smoky tint present in this style and this is one of the largest I have left. It was here charging with Synergy for 10+ years. I was not expecting to part with it and am sad to see it go, but it is ready to work with a new caretaker now.
It has both clear areas and intricate inclusions for contrast. Plus shimmery areas and a LOT of rainbows that become visible from different angles throughout the stone. Very energetic. The Smoky tint becomes more, or less, visible depending on the color of the background you're holding it against (light vs. dark), and the lighting you are in (natural vs. fluorescent, etc.)
It is common for this carving style to have small organic spots on the surface of the stone from inclusions that were close to the surface as the carver polished the stone. They can resemble tiny pinpricks, small notches, or fine lines/linear indents on the surface. The most prominent of these is a small flat spot where a thin layer of crystal (containing a shimmery rainbow and "plane" inclusion) sheared off as the skull was being shaped and polished. Highlighted with =ORANGE ARROWS showing several angles across 2 photos (1 collage, 1 view of the right profile). You can still see the rest of the "plane" inclusion in/around the area. Each piece is totally unique, and hand carved, so there are bound to be differences between each one! These organic areas do not affect the energy of the stone. They are natural, not defects! I always pick my stones and skulls by energy first. The photos don't do it justice. It really is much nicer 'in person!' Check out my feedback and bid with confidence!
It weighs about 15.6oz, so just under 1lb, and measures approximately 3 1/2" inches long X 2" inches wide at the widest point X 2 5/8" inches tall. Code16004

Smoky (Smokey) Quartz is used to dissolve negative energies and open blocks in the Solar plexus, hands, and feet chakras. It is a protective, grounding and stabilizing stone, used to calm and center. It works gently & consistently, not quickly. Smoky Quartz is used as a mood elevator to lift depression as well as remove negative energy to make one relax and think positively. It is believed to bring happiness and good luck and help make dreams and wishes come true! It’s also been used to tap into unconscious and higher wisdom. In Crystal Healing, it is used for kidney ailments, menstrual cramps and associated problems and fertility issues. Smoky quartz is associated with the root chakra.
Quartz is often said to be the crystal or "stone" that everyone needs to start with. Quartz is the most recognized type of crystal and is what many people think of when they hear the word crystal - although there are many, many different types of crystals in all kinds of stones.Quartz can be as clear as ice (ancients called quartz ‘Holy Ice’ and thought that it came from the heavens) or milky white. It can have inclusions, veils, bubbles, unusual formations, etc.
Clarity is not important for a quartz crystal's energetic quality and in fact, inclusions and impurities can make the crystal more energetic and increase it’s ability to amplify subtle energies. Without a few 'imperfections, the energy is often not as intense. Lab crystals are grown with impurities on purpose and depending on the type and placement, will change the frequency that the crystal oscillates at.
Quartz can store energy, amplify it, focus it, transmit it, transform it, balance it, absorb it…
Various types and formations are better for some things than others. Quartz in any form is a powerful stone.
Quartz has long been used to direct and amplify thoughts and intentions - because all thoughts are a form of energy and intentions shape and will effect subtle energies. Because of this, it is useful for healing work, meditation, protection, and manifesting and channeling. Quartz is thought to store information of all types and make it available again for retrieval. The idea behind this is that information is just another form of an energy pattern. Quartz may be held directly on the third eye to increase the clarity of a psychic vision. Many Shamans and Crystal Healers use Quartz to perceive and communicate with other worlds, for dream work, scrying or crystal gazing, perceiving spirits and for channeling. Quartz may be used to dispel and clear negative energies.
Clear quartz is associated with the crown chakra, but in the hands of someone skilled and focused, may also be used to energize all of the chakras. In Crystal Healing, Quartz is said to be effective for chronic fatigue, arthritis, depression, bone ailments and gastrointestinal troubles. It is also used to improve mental and physical stamina.
