Smithsonian Unveils… Wait For It… A Crystal Skull

The Smithsonian has opened a new exhibit detailing the story of a crystal skull of supposedly Aztec origin, sent anonymously to a nonexistent museum in 1992, then eventually determined to be a fake. The Smithsonian isn’t exactly invoking the name “Indiana Jones” as part of the publicity, but hey – capitalizing on a movie to sell museum admissions is nothing new, right?
