This Rainbow Fluorite Crystal Skull Makes Indy’s Look Even Crappier [Art]

Most Indiana Jones fans will agree that The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull wasn’t a great movie. Perhaps it would have been better if he was searching for this breathtaking, 145-pound skull carved out of fluorite. Seriously, this thing will keep you mesmerized for hours.

Apparently, it is packed with so many colors that photos don’t do it justice. Only with the human eye can it’s true beauty be fully captured.

The skull is 16.9 inches long, from front to back. We specially saved a large piece of high quality fluorite for caving this titan skull, and were all amazed by its beauty when all the caving and polishing were done. It has a rainbow of colors all over its surface. When putting it under the sun, the light will get through it and be refracted into uncountable particles, which resulte in the glow with amazing colors. The best camera will still fail to freeze all the colors in one photo. So you get to see it with your own eyes.

The skull was recently sold for a tidy sum of $3000. That’s actually much less than I would have expected for a piece of art of this caliber.
