Lovely carving of a skull, cut and polished from a great piece of orange Carnelian.
Skulls have become more and more popular over the years and some think that this is because they hark back to ancient times and we need to draw on that energy now.
What is interesting is that skulls like to be together. The "feel" or "energy" from a single skull is not just doubled when you place it close to another one, it is increased significantly. People who are into skulls will often have a large collection of them.
