The Crystal Cubes were a gift of the ancient gods to the people at the College of Magic.
Theron, who find out the secret of the two cubes two hundreds years ago, believe that the cubes is a gift from travelers from space, long time ago (ed. wonder if Lee Falk was reading the books "chariots of the gods" and "gods from outer space" by Eric von Däniken this year).
Theron believe that the reason for that he have reach the age 300 is due to his daily meditations in front of the cube, it expiation him for waves from the cubes.
The cubes amplify and transmit thoughts around the earth (or even the stars), it even infinite power to light the earth - or split it.
The usual use for the cubes is that meditation in front of the cube make it creating a kind of power station for the College of Magic so they can survive inside the mountain, and it is a way for Theron at the College of Magic and Mandrake at Xanadu to keep close contact.
The cubes have terrifying power and it would be a disaster if they fall in the hands of the wrong people. For the Cobra it would make him to the master of the earth, no wonder that he was after one of the cubes for a long time.
Theron and Mandrake discover that it was to dangerous for Mandrake to have one of the cubes at Xanadu and decided that both of the cubes must stay at the College of Magic under Theron's protection.
