What is a Vogel Crystal?
Marcel Vogel (1917-1991) was a scientist who researched crystals and determined that careful cutting on all sides of a double-terminated Clear Quartz could maximize its reception, amplification, and transmission of Universal Life Force Energy.
What makes a crystal a “Vogel”?
A properly cut Vogel Crystal draws in energy through the wider (female) endpoint, circulates and amplifies energy inside each of the internal facets, and transmits magnified pure light energy through the narrow (male) tip. This makes Vogel Crystals powerful tools for directional healing, intention work, meditation, and more. Vogel Crystals can be exceptionally useful when vibrational cleansing or purifying will be beneficial.
• Natural quartz.
• Hand cut with the necessary intent, skill, and understanding of the crystal and its intended uses.
• Doubly terminated or cut and polished to this shape.
• Faceted to form an internal angle of 51°, 51 min., 51 sec.—the same angles of the Great Pyramid at Giza.
• Have at least four sides (or more) of facets.
• The transmitter (sometimes referred to as the male) at the narrow end of the crystal must be faceted with a more acute internal angle than the wider, receptive (or female) end.
How do the different numbers of facets change a Vogel Crystal’s purpose?
Marcel Vogel pointed out in his teachings that a large number of facets was not necessary and that a crystal with 13 sides was more than adequate for all uses. However, modern Vogel Crystals offer a wider choice.
4 sided crystals are for healing efforts aimed at the physical body
6 sided crystals are used for healing emotional ailments
8 sided crystals are used for dealing with severe emotional trauma
13 sided crystals are used in meditation to connect with past lives
24/8 sided crystals are used for spiritual rebirth
24/12 sided crystals are used in transformation efforts
There is a veritable world of information on Vogel Crystals, though opinions differ from source to source. The most important thing to remember about Vogels (and other crystals in your healing practice or collection) is to trust your instincts when choosing your piece. Somehow, the right crystal manages to find US when we pay attention.
This stunning Large Water Clear 16 Sided Vogel Phi Crystal Lab Quartz Healing Wand, created by Brazilian Master-cutter and crystal healer Ray Pinto, is 6.5 inches long and weighs 180 grams, or 6.35 ounces.
This water-clear Vogel Phi crystal healing wand displays flawless straight edges where the shaft meets the male and female termination tips, a testimony to the craftsmanship of the crystal cutter. The wand has a very comfortable fit in the hand for a lightworker or meditator. It has a very nice feel to it, well-proportioned, slim, and tapering to a definitive point. It is water clear throughout.
The female termination tip looks like a small pyramid, because this wand was cut to mimic the proportions of the Great Pyramid at Giza, which is thought to be a mammoth antenna and amplifier for Universal Life Force Energy, with Phi ratio proportions.
This wand is made of laboratory quartz, so it is extremely pure energetically, and is the perfect instrument for those who would like to program their Vogel wand in accordance with their own spiritual practice.
“The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a state of perfection and balance,” according to crystal researcher Marcel Vogel, a senior scientist with IBM for 27 years. “When it's cut to the proper form and when the human mind enters into relationship with its structural perfection, the crystal emits a vibration which extends and amplifies the powers of the human mind. Like a laser, it radiates energy in a coherent, highly concentrated form, and this energy may be transmitted into objects or people at will.”
