They are believed to hold the energy and knowledge of the crystal from which they are carved. Crystal Skulls are used in meditation, energy work, and rituals for accessing higher states of awareness. Different crystals in skull form are chosen for their specific metaphysical properties, such as amplification (quartz), love (rose quartz), or intuition (amethyst).
