This is a life size AMETHYST GEODE crystal skull. Shown next to a 12oz/355ml soda can for size comparison. Approximately the size of a small teenager.
Fantastically gorgeous. The crystalline structure of this one is just amazing, and visible from every angle. Small shimmery areas and rainbows catch the light in it as you move the stone around in your hands. LOTS of dark red/reddish orange HEMATITE all throughout, with a brighter golden yellow area right in the tip of the nose! :-> The large central Amethyst vug has beautiful sparkly crystals all the way through - you can even see through the underside if you hold it up to the light. Some of the Amethyst crystals have traces of Hematite on the points as well. There is a fancy looking area of Agate in/around the chin, which has its own VUGS as well. A thin one on the right corner of the jawline that is lined with sparkly Druzy crystals, and a really unique looking larger one in/around the middle of the teeth running down into the left corner of the jawline. It has dark reddish brown crystal formations inside. Larger golden yellow DENDRITIC inclusions are present in this same area. They can resemble plant life but are actually composed of Iron in this case.
Vugs are natural formations, sometimes also known as "crystal cave inclusions", and considered highly collectible.
It weighs about 6lbs 12.9oz / 3.088kgs and measures approximately 7 1/2" long X 4 1/2" wide X 5 1/2" tall. Code-020623-20707
Photos can NOT possibly show how stunning this skull is (although we do our best to bring the vibration across!). It is so much nicer 'in person'!
Besides the larger vugs, there are some small organic spots here and there from inclusions that were close to the surface as the skull was shaped. They may resemble pinpricks, small notches, or fine lines on the surface of the stone. ALL inclusions present come from 100% natural formations within the stone. The carver worked with the natural shape of the Geode throughout the entire piece.

Agates are the most well known stones for balancing the subtle energies and to assist with protection, (especially of children.)
Agate in general is a stone of inner harmony. It's thought that when you bring yourself into a place of inner harmony, the result can be an enhanced ability to heal oneself.
Many agates have similar properties, but look for a particular variety to see if that one is for specialized applications. Always pick the stone that you are strongly attracted to!

Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is "to remember." This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a Being of Light. You are a Spiritual Being, inside of a physical body. "Remember."
