CREATING A QUANTUM CONVERTER
The Vogel-cut® Crystal
(excerpted from the forthcoming book Crystals, Love, and the Matrix of Consciousness: The
Legacy of Marcel Vogel) by Rumi Da)
A natural crystal from the earth demonstrates the capacity for information
storage, amplification, and transfer, but it is unable to cohere that energy. Coherence,
the transfer of a single frequency or narrow band spectrum energy, is an important factor
if the energy or information is to be stored or transferred while maintaining its
Of equal importance is the fact that no two unfaceted crystals are the
same and therefore they are incapable of producing the same precise effects. In the
process of creating a meaningful technology it is important that the results obtained are
able to be replicated by anyone with adequate skill and training. With the use of
unfaceted crystals, these results are similar, but not the same. It is necessary to facet
crystals into a precise geometric form in order for them to manifest their greatest
When quartz grows within the earth it must accommodate its growing
environment and usually accretes to it many undesirable secondary vibrations. Physical
manifestations of this might be a distorted geometric form, cracks, crevices,
multiple secondary crystals growing on the surface of the primary crystal, and so on.
Although often aesthetically appealing this creates what might be thought of as a low
signal to noise ratio. Once this noise or the unwanted secondary vibrations
are removed there is a high signal to noise ratio or a clear, clean signal. This is
accomplished through the correct and conscious faceting of the crystal. A precise, correct
and conscious faceting of a quartz crystal allows it to become a precision tool for
healing and meditation work.
Rubies, for example, are faceted to make them useful for laser applications.
Aluminum oxide chromium, ruby, is a rather unimpressive stone until it is faceted into a
cylinder with Brewster windows so that light can be pumped into it and reflected
internally so as to produce a coherent light - a laser. The rubies used in this technology
are synthetic primarily because of cost and the ability to control the purity of the
The first shape created by Marcel Vogel was a four sided
In 1974, the pattern for the crystal came to him intuitively, in dream,
without any conscious understanding of the energetics of the form. It took one year of
hard work in the glass shop at IBM for the crystal to be given shape. Unknowingly Marcel
had created a form that was of the same configuration as the Kabbablistic Tree of Life,
although the crystal was a three dimensional representation of this sacred geometry.
Through intuitively guided efforts, an instrument of quartz crystal was
created with which experimental results could be replicated. The faceted crystal has the
ability to cohere energy, unlike its unfaceted predecessor. These crystals can be
duplicated precisely so that multiple crystals can be tested. Each crystal must, however,
meet the exacting specifications. A simple physical copy of a Vogel-cut crystal does not necessarily meet the required
standards. This can be determined through the use of the Omega 5, a psychotronic
instrument used for measuring extremely subtle energies. Many people have found themselves
in possession of an imitation of a Vogel-cut
crystal and wondered why it doesnt function as expected. Although similar in
appearance, it is not at all the same precision instrument.
The two ends of the crystal are cut to specific angles. The more acute
end, called the operating tip, is intuitively faceted to be in resonance with the
individual for whom the crystal is being prepared while the more obtuse tip is shaped to
have a specific fixed resonance to an aspect of the earth grid: the Cheops pyramid.
FACETING A VOGEL-CUT CRYSTAL
There is a story of three stonecutters preparing the blocks necessary for
the construction of a building. Upon being asked what they were doing, one cutter,
irritated and angry, dissatisfied with his life, snapped back saying Im
cutting rocks here to build whatever it is theyre making! What does it look like
The second worker, preoccupied with making enough money to satisfy all his
needs and wants, responded to the same inquiry saying Im making these blocks
so that I can feed and clothe my family, pay the rent and keep up with all the bills I
have. Its all very hard work!
The third worker happily completed his chiseling, paused, looked up at the
questioner with a smile on his face, and said Ive been allowed to help build
this temple. A place of Light where people can come, worship, and be healed in the house
of their Lord.
Three individuals all doing the same job, or are they? It is the attitude
of the third cutter, the realization of the great gift of being allowed to participate in
the creation of something that can be of service to humanity that is necessary to create a
true healing instrument. In the creation of the sacred stones, not only are the needs of
others met, but also the needs of the cutter. In serving others we are served.
Vogel-cut® crystals are
specially tuned quantum converters designed to assist in accessing and utilizing
particular energies. The angle of the tips are critical to creating a instrument that is
in resonance with the water molecule and to the individual for whom the crystal is being
Many practitioners find the option of having a crystal custom made for them to
be particularly attractive and useful. The name of the practitioner and sometimes their
photograph is used as an energetic witness. Prior to initiating the creation of a Vogel
crystal from the raw material a moment or
two is taken to focus on the individual for whom the crystal is being prepared.
Authentic Vogel-cut crystals are
created from the best quality natural raw quartz available. This raw material is sometimes
from Siberia, sometimes from Madagascar, and frequently from Brazil.
The first stage in the preparation of a healing or meditation crystal is to
create a rough cut on the trim saw. This means that a very rough shape of the desired
finished product is formed using a diamond blade. The crystal at this point is opaque. The
surface of the crystal appears to have a frosting on it. The direction of the cut is
always along the C (central) or growth axis of the crystal. This is an
important factor and is not always respected in many of the copies or counterfeit crystals
we have seen. In many of the imitations, not only is the cut frequently
faulty, irregular and inaccurate, but the natural energy flows of the crystal are not
respected. This results in a healing piece or medallion that may appear the same as a genuine Vogel-cut, but is in actuality a
completely different crystal.
The next task is to take the rough cut crystal to the lapping machines
where it is ground with a series of finer and finer grits. This is similar, although not
the same, as the use of finer and finer gradations of sand paper used on wood to bring
about a smoothe finish when building furniture. All the work on the flat laps is done by
hand without the use of any dop sticks or mechanical arms or calibration. It
is entirely an intuitive or feeling process.
This is truly a task of love and meditation. The environment is noisy and
cold. Water must be continually flowing on the lapidary wheels as the crystal is faceted
in order to prevent the crystal from becoming overheated and cracking or shattering. The
sound of the grinding crystal can be quite hard on sensitive ears. Frequently earplugs
have to be worn. To breathe in the effluvia from the grinding quartz is hazardous and face
masks are usually worn so that the material is not inhaled. The same applies to the eyes.
Protective glasses or goggles are often required.
The finished product is then checked energetically with the Omega 5 to
make sure that it has the appropriate energetic value indicating its resonance with water.
We also check to ensure that the crystal is appropriate for the individual for whom it was
prepared. It is also important that there be no cracks or chips in the surface of
the crystal. A certain amount of inclusions within the crystal are acceptable, but this
does not include internal fractures or crack.
Finally, I will treat the crystal in a way shown to me by Marcel to
install a particular permanent programming in it so that it can be used only an instrument
Often a crystal will get broken for a variety of reasons. Sometimes this
is a result of carelessness, but periodically a crystal will have the tip flake off or
fracture due to a major shift in the fundamental frequency of the user. A Vogel-cut crystal is designed to precisely fit your
energetic field. Should this field change in a dramatic way it may be necessary to alter
the angles of the terminations of the crystal. Unable to withstand the pressure that may
be created by a field so out of phase with its primary frequency the crystal will flake
off at the tip. This usually happens at the operating tip or more acute angled
termination. Should this happen we can easily re-tune or re-cut your crystal for you at a
nominal cost. Our focus is to be of service to our friends who wish to work with Vogel-cut crystals in a real and meaningful way.
The faceting process can be thought of as domesticating or
teaching the crystal to function in a specific way in order to bring out its highest
potential. The faceting is done as a gift to the crystal, not as an intrusion or
violation. It is not appropriate to alter every crystal. For some their highest value is
to remain in their natural form. This attitude is critical in the transformation of raw
quartz into a Vogel crystal. Since the
early days the number of facets on the crystals has been increased from four sides to six,
eight, twelve, thirteen, twenty four, and so. The greater the number of facets the greater
is the potential energetic spin within the crystal. Each facet is like a mirror from which
light can be reflected.
As mentioned, a crystal must be faceted not only with geometric precision
along the C or growth axis, but must also be worked with right attitude and
consciousness. It is not simply a matter of mechanically cutting the same general shape. I
have had some of the best crystal and diamond cutters in the world from Germany attempt to
reproduce the Vogel-cut crystals with no
success. Despite the similarity of appearance the energetic measurement of these crystals
were not at all the same.
I presented these crystals and the findings to Marcel and he laughed
You see, Ive told you before that you can go ahead and try to
copy these crystals, but you cant do it. Now you know for yourself! Theres
much more involved than just cutting crystals into a certain shape. (personal
Since his passing in 1991, many people have attempted to copy
Marcels crystals, but to my knowledge none meet the energetic standards required. I
have tested many of the duplicates and found them to be lacking not just physically, but
energetically as well.
We continue the production of authentic Vogel-cut crystals with the same cutters who have been
faceting the crystals for years. Shortly before his passing Marcel asked us to maintain
the high standards he established for these instruments:
I ask that you carry on this work as best you can and maintain the
standards we have striven to achieve over the years. I have given you the heart of my work
and I know you will continue with wisdom and love. (Letter: Marcel Vogel - Rumi Da
The form geometry of a Vogel cut
crystal creates a coherent field of energy that can act as a carrier wave of information
whereas raw quartz does not.
Why is this important?
According to Marcel:
This carrier wave must have a coherency to it so as not to mingle
with the radiations emitted from the target material but act now as the
differentiation transport vehicle. The quartz crystal cut in the bi-pyramidal shape
provides such an instrument. (P.R.I. Newsletter #7.4 July-August
1990, ©PRI/Lifestream Associates)
In the case of offering healing service to another individual,
the radiation emitted from the target material would refer to the difficulty, injury, or
distress experienced by the client. The coherent light emitted from the Vogel crystal is able to penetrate the often
disparate radiant fields within and around a distressed individual. An incoherent energy
is often dissipated if not completely absorbed by the chaotic field generated by the
In a Vogel-cut crystal the
differing angles of the tips create a diode effect with the transmission of energy from
one termination to the other.
With the field moving primarily in one direction the energy of an
individual is reflected back to them through the crystal. By using a Vogel-cut crystal a charge separation can occur. The
healer is not affected by the clients field. This is one of the primary
benefits of using a crystal rather than direct hands-on healing.
Beyond this, the most profound effect of the faceted crystal has to do
with its relationship and resonance to water. A crystal that is faceted and tuned to the
water molecule will hold a charge or information that when transferred to the body of
person will link to the H2O molecule. This charge is
stored within the interlattice
space of the crystal. Because more than 75% of the physical
body is water, the Vogel crystal, with its
resonance with water, is the perfect delivery mechanism for the introduction of subtle
energies to an individual. It was also thought that the various subtle energy bodies
described in metaphysical literature are gradations of a field that is anchored to the
physical body via the water molecule.
The crystal is a quantum converter that is able to store and transmit
energy in a form that has discreet biological effects. Our speculation is that because of
the cohering capability of the Vogel-cut
crystal it can used to affect reality at the quantum or subatomic level. The
imprint of thoughtforms or coding is stored on and within the particles or wave packets at
the quantum level. This is most likely a resonant effect. The human body, on an energetic
level, is an array of oscillating points that are layered and have a definite symmetry and
structure at both the macro and micro dimensions.
The bones, tissues, cells, and fluids of the body have a definite
crystallinity about them. The structure of the fluids, cells, and tissues of the body tend
to become unstructured or incoherent when dis-ease or distress is present. The physical
body is comprised of liquid crystal systems in the cell membranes, intercellular fluids as
well as the larger structures such as the fatty tissues, muscular and nervous systems,
lymph, blood, and so on. Through the use of an appropriately tuned crystal, to which these
structures are responsive, balance and coherence can be restored by delivering the
necessary information or energetic nutrients. This is the beginning of
