Glowing Life-Sized Skull is Handcarved from a Colorful Geode

Gemstone crafter Skullis hand-carved this glowing life-sized skull entirely out of microscopic crystals with colorful bands of blues and purples that run throughout it. Just below its smooth and soft surface, the skull's open top reveals a cluster of multifaceted crystals that lie beneath.

In addition to the skull's visually delightful interior and exterior, Skullis says that the geode will bring fortune to its owner. Composed out of agate stone, one of the oldest good luck gems, it builds self confidence and brings prosperity and patience to those who possess it.
