The "eyes"of the specialist sometimes are not sufficient to authenticate. We have sometimes used the services of scientific laboratories to achieve carbon-14 test, thermoluminescence or chemical analysis of micro-samples... Good news! Thus the authenticity of the skull has been demonstrated. He has joined the club of eight skulls known from Mixtec culture and preserved in the most prestigious museums in the world from London to Mexico. Its rarity and its evocative power were rewarded with a sale price of around one million dollars.
