What Do We Mean by an "Authentic" Vogel Crystal?

Early Vogel Crystal Wand cut by Marcel Vogel; from his personal collection

Named for Marcel Vogel, the name "Vogel crystal" is used loosely in today’s market place. Many, if not most, "Vogel crystals" are imitations that have been cut with double-terminated ends but not to Marcel’s specific directions. The imitations are easily identifiable by measuring the external angle of the receptive female end and inspecting the symmetry of the facets. 

The specific shape and cutting process of a Vogel crystal enable a spiraling energy that can create the movement of small doses of natural radiation delivered to the human body through heat, light, and vibration. Once you've held an authentic Vogel-cut crystal in your hand, you’ll know the power of these precision-cut crystal healing tools.

Marcel Vogel developed the now-common "double-terminated" crystal wand generator.

Vogel Wand

Named after Marcel Vogel, a true Vogel Crystal Wand follows Marcel's specific instructions & guidance.

There are a variety of different shapes of cut quartz crystal. Many quartz crystal cut styles are intended to maximize the beauty and the light-reflecting qualities of the quartz crystal material. Some crystals are faceted for scientific and commercial applications such as laser technology. And some crystals are intentionally cut as energy healing tools.  

The Vogel Difference

The purpose of a Vogel crystal is to amplify and cohere (gather) the thought and energy that you desire to focus into your body/mind or that of another person.


Amplification we can understand, but coherence is a more obscure concept in physics terms. 


To simplify, when applied to the physics of light, coherence is the condensing of the light wave/particles into ultimately a laser beam. As example, if you take ordinary light and condense it or make it coherent, you end up with is a laser beam.


We know that crystals can amplify information. Early radios were based upon crystal technology and were often called “crystal sets”.

As demonstrated by a 1974 experiment in digital holographic storage systems at Stanford University, crystal structures can store and retrieve digital information: "Stanford University physicists have demonstrated the first fully digital model of such a device, storing and retrieving the Mona Lisa."

Marcel Vogel’s research into luminescence and liquid crystal technology had led him to understand that quartz crystals can store, amplify, and transfer three-dimensional information. 


As he continued his research, Marcel very soon found the limitations of natural quartz. While it could store and retrieve information, it did not cohere and amplify the energies emitted by the body and mind of a living being. 


Because of this limitation, Marcel began an exploration into faceting crystals as a way of concentrating or cohering and amplifying a crystals power.

Marcel Vogel's Crystal Vision

And then he experienced a vision upon waking from his sleep.

Talmudic Tree of Life

The Talmudic Tree of Life

In Vogel's vision of sacred geometry, Marcel saw the Talmudic Tree of Life in geometric form, which he felt was a little strange since he wasn’t Jewish. But he still managed to grab a note pad and draw diagrams from the vision. This led to Marcel spending the next year in the laboratory making his first crystal cut, based on the geometric shape he held with his vision:

Vogel's Vision

Marcel Vogel's vision led him to develop the specific shape and cutting angles that intensify coherence and amplification of a crystal's energy.

 Authentic Vogel Crystals Amplify & Cohere

The vision of sacred geometry led to the development of crystal cutting that combines the healing properties of the crystal with the ability to create intentional healing. As Marcel Vogel described, a properly cut crystal will take in energy at the receptive end and amplify it as it circulates around the inside of the crystal's walls. The energy hits the internal sides of the polished facets as it revolves and then is transmitted from the focal end.


Marcel Vogel described a true, authentic “Vogel-cut crystal” must be cut to comply with his research and teachings. A Vogel Crystal is cut to exact specifications and with the appropriate care necessary to assure the Universal Life Force is attracted, amplified, and transmitted properly.   Click here to see our crystal wand generators.


Per Marcel’s instructions, a crystal must be:

・hand cut with the necessary intent, skill, and understanding of the crystal and its intended uses,
・double terminated, cut, and polished to a specific shape,
・cut completely aligned with the C axis of the quartz crystal, and
・cut to 456HZ to attune to the vibrational frequency of water.

A true Vogel Crystal’s receptive end, sometimes called the female end of the crystal, must be faceted forming an internal angle of 51 degrees, 51 minutes, and 51 seconds. This is the same angle as the sides of the Great Pyramid at Giza. The transmitter end, sometimes referred to as the male end of the crystal, must be faceted with a more acute internal angle than the  receptive end. 

The Exact Angles of an Authentic Vogel Crystal

Receptive or Female End

Vogel Wand Interior Angles

An authentic Vogel Crystal's receptive or female end forms an internal angle of 51 degrees, 51 minutes, and 51 seconds - the same angle as the Great Pyramid at Giza.

The only crystal wand generators that are considered "true Vogel-cuts" have 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, or 16 facets. Most crystals cut with 20 facets and are machine cut due to the extreme difficulty of maintaining symmetry.

Vogel Wands

Lapidary artists trained in the art of making these exacting Vogel hand cuts are a vanishing breed. Lapidary cutters who were trained by Marcel have made their mark in the world by taking his cutting technology to the next level.
