Is The Crystal Skull A Fake?

We have heard the awesome tale of the little girl Anna finding the mysterious Crystal Skull while with her father in South america for a dig.In fact, it has developed quite a "following."

A recent article in Archeology deems testing at Smithstonian proved it is not a relic at all, but a money making scheme developed in the 1930.s.What do you think? Could that level of carving been possible at that time?

Here is the article{

The author says in conclusion..."In Danger My Ally, Frederick Mitchell-Hedges warned that the skull was “the embodiment of all evil” and that “several people who have cynically laughed at it have died, others have been stricken and become seriously ill” (1954: p. 240). Clearly, we should not believe everything we read, and, ultimately, we must be brave and tell the truth. The Mitchell-Hedges crystal skull is not ancient; not even very old. It was probably made in Europe in the 20th century, and was not polished for five generations. It is not powerful, not scary and not at all what it purports to be. "
