Skulls were hugely popularly gems socketed in the early days of D2C for the dual leech they added. They are seldom used for that property anymore, as most players have far better item options, but they can still be helpful, especially in weapons for players without access to Amn runes or other forms of leech.
Diablo III Skulls
Skull gems are not found in Diablo III. Only Rubies, Topazes, Emeralds, and Amethysts are found in D3C, though other gem types might return in expansions. See the Diablo III wiki for more details.
Diablo II: Lord of Destruction
The following bonuses are created by socketing a skull in D2X.
