* All of the real crystal skulls, including the most notorious, the [[http://www.archaeology.org/online/features/mitchell_hedges/facts.html Mitchell-Hedges Skull]], that have been subjected to scientific examination, have been determined to have been constructed using twentieth-century tools and machinery.

Naturally those who believe (or want to believe) the story of the crystal skulls find ways to explain this away, such as saying [[InsaneTrollLogic the tool marks on the skulls aren't because they're modern hoaxes, they're because the ancient Maya had power tools]].

* In an epic example of WharCouldHaveBeen, a planned but never filmed episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' would have featured an archaeologist studying the ruins of an ancient civilization (the "Faran Empire," of which the Ferengi homeworld was said to be a former colony). She finds a Crystal Skull that is said to have belonged to a line of ancient rulers. The Skull influences Riker's behavior and he becomes increasingly aggressive and egotistical while leading an away mission that is competing with the Ferengi to obtain the skull (it's the Ferengi equivalent of the Holy Grail) and learn the secrets of the Faran Empire. The episode would have ended with the destruction of the skull and the end of its influencing powers.

* The British Museum now describes its crystal skull as "most-likely produced in the nineteenth century in Europe". A scientific examination of this skull and one owned by the Smithsonian Institute suggested that they had been shaped using lathe-mounted jewellers' wheels.

* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime'' features the Turquoise Skull Zombie in the Lost City, who uses his Turquoise Skull to [[BanditMook absorb sun]] and fire it out as a OneHitKill beam forward. His almanac even references that unlike crystal skulls, turquoise skulls are non-mysterious and common as dirt.
