How to Buy Your Own Crystal Skull


We are working hard this year to provide a printed version of our book Journeys of a Crystal Skull Explorer in English. We have not yet discovered the best way to offer this printed edition. However, for the moment, due to the popularity of the new e-book readers and apps for tablets and cell/mobile phones we are sharing a special series of e-books called the Travel Log series which shares our world travels with the crystal skulls.  Above was a copy of our first Travel Log book dealing with two journeys to Mexico City in 2009.

Additionally, via Filament BookClub (to get your copy now, click on this link), they have released a version of this book as an e-book that can be read on a light weight reading device -- just like holding a book in your hands.  Filament is the bookclub that is associated with the Coast to Coast radio show and a number of the people who have appeared on that programs are authors who are a part of Filament books. 

In any case, if you would like to be notified by email when the printed edition of Journeys of the Crystal Skull Explorers is ready (estimating: mid-late part of this year, 2010), please click on the picture of the special crystal skull (called "Ami") below and fill out the on-line form that will be presented.  These new versions have a few additional sections that were not included in our original e-book.

(Since 2006, New Announcements)

Starting in 2006, a group of friends in Europe began to create a series of festivals to celebrate and honor the crystal skulls.  The first Festival was  held in the southeastern part of Holland near the border with Belgium.  Two hundred people from several countries attended this event.  The second Festival was held in Budapest, in October of 2007 where we surprised to see over six hundred people in attendance.

The goal of these Festivals is to provide for the participants the latest news and information related to the crystal skulls as  well as offer an opportunity for those  in attendance to have a direct personal contact with one or more crystal skulls.  All the guest speakers and the guest crystal skulls which gather for these festival are honored and respected in an equal manner.  It  does not matter if one crystal skull is much older then another, each crystal skull has its role and service to offer as they all work together.  To read more about the festivals and what took place in the first two festivals in 2006 and 2007, we have setup a special website at:


For the year of 2011 and beyond, there are a number of other crystal skull conferences being planned in the world by various organizations.  We were very honored to help our friends in Holland with their conference in March of 2011 called "The Unfolding of the Crystal Skulls" for which they plan their next conference in May of 2012. We still hope to be involved in other conferences in the world to continue the energy and goals of the earlier European conferences.  Please periodically check the above website for updates or you might want to join our Crystal Skull newsletter, mentioned above for this news. 

Additionally, if you would like to be informed about future crystal skull related events we will offer or are aware of, just click on the button below and fill out the form presented to you.  Hope to meet you in person at one of these special meetings!!

(Conferences in Switzerland, 2004-2006)

The Crystal Skull World Mission conferences was started in 2004.  It was a pre-cursor conference to the one that was later held in Holland in 2006.  The first conference was organized by the Heyyanka Foundation, IKA international and the World Mystery Research Center.  Jan Ackermann of the Heyyanka Foundation graciously offered his facilities (a conference room and guest house) to allow us to gather there in August of 2004, as we had 35 people in attendance from six countries. About 20-25 people attended again, at Conference #2 (late August 2005) including the chance to meet some crystal skulls that were discovered in Guatemala. And the third and final event, held in July of 2006, also had about 30 people in attendance including a Mayan Priest from Guatemala.

The purpose of the Crystal Skull World Mission conference was to provide a space for individuals interested in the crystal skulls to meet and share information and knowledge.  To give you a feel about what happens at the World Mission conferences, there is a link below of various pictures from our 2004 gathering.

One of the most mysterious artifacts that has been discovered upon our planet are known as the Crystal Skulls. A Crystal Skull is simply defined as an ancient artifact discovered made from various type of quartz crystals that has the appearance of a human size (or larger) and shaped skull. Most of these ancient Crystal Skulls have been uncovered near or within ancient ruins located in Mexico or Central America, possibly linked to the Mesoamerican cultures of this region. However within recent years, crystal skulls are now surfacing or being reported in other parts of the world such as in South America, Europe and Asia.

Joshua Shapiro
Crystal Skull Explorer
Joshua Shapiro is known as a  Crystal Skull Explorer.  He has worked with various friends over the years, to offer numerous special public events related to the crystal skulls including recently, various festivals and conferences where several crystal skulls and their guardians have come together.

saw his first ancient crystal skull in San Jose, California in 1983, made from amethyst quartz crystal which is known as "Ami". Over the years, Joshua (now working closely with Katrina Head) has given numerous presentations throughout the U.S., Europe, South America and Australia.  He is also a crystal skull investigator and author and the co-caretaker of more than 10 crystal skulls.

Joshua Shapiro is the coordinator for the World Mystery Research Center (see their website, click here), a non-profit center setup to research various world mysteries from both a scientific and paranormal perspective. Starting in 2004, three crystal skull conferences were setup in Switzerland through the Heyyanka Foundation in Switzerland and two International Festivals, the first in Holland in 2006 and a second one in Hungary in 2007.  Joshua and his partner Katrina, also helped to participate in another crystal skull conference in Holland in March, 2011 with other various friends.  Joshua is the sponsor of this website called V J Enterprises that was one of the first websites in 1995 to begin to share information about the crystal skulls. 

In 1985, Joshua met Sandra Bowen and F. R. 'Nick' Nocerino and through this association became aware of a number of the older crystal skulls known at this time including the Mayan Crystal Skull , the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull and the Texas Crystal Skull ( also known as "MAX"). In March of 1989, the three of them released their first book entitled: "Mysteries of the Crystal Skulls Revealed", (again, image of book cover, shown above) which was also published in Brazil in 1992.

Moving in the 1990's and beyond, Joshua became acquainted with several other skulls including "ET", "Windsong", "Rainbow" & "Madre", "Synergy", "Skully" and had a chance to visit with British Museum Crystal Skull.  In 1999, he received his own crystal skull as a gift , a 10 lb. smoky quartz skull made in Brazil which is known as "Portal de Luz".   In 2001, Joshua's first crystal skull presentation in Holland which resulted in him moving to this country to work on a new book that was published in Holland in 2006 entitled "Kristallen Schedels" (Crystal Skulls).  By the time he left Holland, he had a collection of three crystal skulls and begin to distribute his free crystal skull e-book (which provides photos of these skulls).

In 2008, he returned to the U.S. and became involved with a number of media interviews about the crystal skulls due to the release of the 4th installment of the Indiana Jones film having a chance for his first private session with the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull.  In 2009, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where he met his current life partner and fellow Crystal Skull Explorer, Katrina Head and they have been working together ever since.  In 2009, they created the new company, Crystal Interdimensional Journeys & Explorations, LLC and led a spiritual tour to Peru in November.  From October of 2010 - through February of 2011, they travel from the East Coast of the U.S. to the West Coast (going through NW Canada) to offer their crystal skull event and then decided to base themselves near Seattle, Washington.  Together Joshua and Katrina released their first e-book for the key e-book readers, the Crystal Skull Travel Log Series in May of 2011. 

The Crystal Skulls themselves, are considered to be one of the world greatest mysteries. Some of these artifacts have been researched by Hewlett Packard ( reported in Richard Garvin's book, "The Crystal Skull", 1973) and continue to baffle the modern scientific community. There have been a number of phenomena associated with the crystal skulls including:

  • Individuals receiving a healing in the presence
  • Psychics and sensitives channeling or receiving impressions
  • Holographic Images forming inside of the crystal skulls
  • A Powerful energy measured within or around the skulls when activated

Spiritual Jewelry Designer

I found this amazing website - Ka Gold Jewelry - featuring the cosmic jewelry artist David Weitzman. The jewelry creations are simply irresistible. What I liked most about David's work is that each jewel is molded with a special intention and meaning. The jewels enhance our life with qualities such as love, courage and abundance. For me wearing a jewel that is made with intent is a reminder of what really is important to me in life.

My three favorite items:

Seed of life pendant - silver Flower of life pendant - silver Merkaba pendant silver medium
