 The Crown of Thorns
Crown of thorns starfish are found on coral reefs in the tropics ranging from the Red Sea, throughout the Indian and Pacific Oceans, and all the way to the Pacific coast of Panama.
People blast reefs with dynamite, and the crown of thorns, and even their swimming larvae, are attracted to the metabolytes reseased by damaged corals.
When the crown of thorns eats the coral they accumulate these chemicals in their own tissues (it does not seem to harm them, the larvae actually survive better with DDT in the water).

 Llewellyn Encyclopedia: Sahasrara - The Crown
The crown chakra is most significantly characterized by a quality of "withinness," contrasting the external manifestation in time and space of the lower chakras.
If we postulate that each chakra represents a dimension of smaller and faster vibration, we theoretically reach a place in the crown chakra where we have a wave of infinite speed and no wavelength, allowing it to be everywhere at once and yet having no perceivable location.
The crown chakra is the place where we study consciousness itself, even though each chakra reflects a state of consciousness.

The Crown Jewels which are used today in Coronations and other ceremonial events in the United Kingdom are the regalia which have been used by English kings and queens since 1660 or earlier.
From the reign of Anne (crowned in 1702) until the early twentieth century, it was quite usual for the regalia to be set with jewels hired for the coronation only.
On such occasions, the Imperial State Crown is removed from the display case in the Jewel House at the Tower of London and a label is left with the simple message 'In use'.

 Jewel in the Crown
All in all, Jewel in the Crown proved to be a challenging text and demanded from its audience an unusually high degree of commitment and perseverance.
Although Jewel in the Crown was broadcast in 1984, with a repeat screening the following year, by the late 1980s the serial still had a high public profile as it became embroiled in debates about television, quality and the future of British broadcasting.

Similarily in Taoist esoteric systems that teach the cultivation of an immortal spirit body, this body exits through the Crown Centre, in contrast to ordinary astral projection or out of body experience, which is normally through (or regulated by) the solar plexus centre.

Hair growth at the center of the crown is centrifugal; that is, the hair emerges from the scalp acutely and spirals in an outward direction.
The Crown is involved in many of the hair loss patterns that we see clinically, and not just the Norwood, or classically "male" patterns; it is also part of the Ludwig, or typically "female" forms of pattern baldness.
