Default Crystal Skulls inspired the Orbs in DS9?

I was watching an episode of "Ancient Aliens" and they had a segment on the Crystal SKulls. Apparently Crystal skulls are ancient artifacts that have surfaced in different parts of the world, they are sculptured quartz in the form of a human skull. They are rumored to have been of extraterrestrial origin, and to contain some power when brought together, just like the Orbs in DS9, making me think Michael Pillar who wrote the pilot episode to DS9, might have been inspired by them when coming up with the story for the pilot episode of DS9. Of course, I have no proof he did know about them or were inspired by them when coming up with the concept of the Orbs!
