We are proud to offer this stunning quartz skull for sale, exclusively on our website. This particular skull feels particularly powerful. Its high-grade quartz is transparent in places, and it has a rare golden citrine inclusion in 2 places.
This piece’s journey started hundreds of millions of years ago, when magma from the Earth’s core slowly rose to the surface. As it cooled in a very narrow range of conditions, it crystallised into quartz. Even more specific conditions proceeded to ensure that nearby citrine was formed, which lead to this inclusion.
Thousands of millennia later we sustainably mined it, and transported the raw material directly to our expertly trained artisans. We then designed, hand carved, polished, and perfected this beautiful skull.
Fabricating these pieces from solid crystal is incredibly difficult. Quartz is so hard that it can scratch glass, but can be unpredictable when carving. This makes cutting time-consuming and risky. Polishing is expensive too, as we have to use diamond powder to get this gloss finish.
We are always one carving mistake, or unexpected fracture away from failure, and if that happens, we can’t pass the piece through our tough quality control measures.
Metaphysically, quartz is used for its grounding and amplifying qualities. Its skull shape serves as a momento mori, a reminder that your time on this earth is limited. And what more touching way to do that than with a hundred million year old piece of solid crystal?

Who are Witchy?
We are made up from 3 crystal experts in the Netherlands and Britain, brought together with a passion for art, crystals, and Mother Earth.
Witchy started from the passionate rejection of low-quality crystals and crystal art pieces being offered, especially when many were made from crystals mined by underaged and underpaid workers, with a huge amount of environmental impact.
We now bring you the very best bespoke crystals and crystal art pieces, made in the kindest way possible. By the Earth. For the Earth.
Each order helps us donate heavily to charity and plant trees to offset the emissions we can't otherwise prevent. Any questions? Contact us!
