BASIC CRYSTALLOGRAPHY AND THE GROWTH OF CRYSTALS
What is a crystal?

Crystals are a key to unlock the transformative capacity within each of us and to accelerating our conscious evolution.
The word crystal is derived from the Greek word “krystallos,” meaning frozen light.
A crystal can be considered as a systematic, orderly and repetitious patterning of energies that is a precipitate of Light. Some speculate that Light is stepped down through many levels or dimensions before a physical form manifests.
It is the forming aspect of Light that creates the highly ordered array of energies we call a crystal. The completed crystal will be altered from its original intended form should this Light pre-form be altered in any way. This can happen through changes in environmental factors relevant to the crystals growth or through the intervention of consciousness.

    In his laboratory at IBM, Marcel Vogel witnessed and photographed this precipitation of Light while growing liquid crystals and wrote subsequently in his Psychic Research Newsletter:

     “In all of nature there is a continual process of information being passed from one object to another
as well as within itself. I speak here of information as ‘that summation of vibrations, electrical pulses
and light which cohere together to present to the environment a distinct state unique to that moment.’
Matter then can cohere into the form or pattern which brings about a new state of matter.

    “In 1960, I started research in the study of liquid crystals. Liquid crystals are an intermediate state between solid and liquid matter.
     “There are two means of inducing these intermediate states. One is by heating an object until it melts.
The other is by dissolving a solid into a solution. A heated system is called a thermotropic mesophase;
the solution system is called a lyotropic mesophase.
    “When cool, if a liquid crystal state exists, the melt goes into a birefringent state under polarized light
which can be readily seen under a polarizing microscope. From this state the sample will then crystallize into the solid state.

    “In the course of the study of this state under the microscope I noticed a remarkable event, namely
that before the melt went into the liquid crystal state, a blue flash of light took place and then immediately after that the sample transcended into the liquid crystal state.
    “This state was videotaped and after one year of effort a picture was taken at the moment of transition.
What appeared on the film was the prefiguring in space of the crystallographic form the system was to assume.
The blue flash contained information which formed into a geometric form. This geometric form was the source of the crystal; the holographic form from which the crystal grew and developed.                                                     

“We have here a consolidation of thermal variation, electrostatic change, light, electronic oscillation
of the chemical components all combining together to produce an informational unit which became critical, it emits light and transitions of state then occur.” 
( Psychic Research, Inc. Newsletter, #6.1 Jan-Feb. 1989; c P.R.I./Lifestream Associates)

   
The photograph described is of blue light that is in the shape of a crystal. One can see that in some areas within the blue light there is a gold color emerging. The gold color is the actual crystal that is precipitating from the light. The light is the consciousness of the crystal, or perhaps of the atoms within that constitute the crystal, that is about to precipitate into form.
    This is an important point: the form of the crystal is a precipitate of the Light rather than the Light being a radiant quality of the form.

 According to Dan Winter, in his book Alphabet of the Heart, it is the short wave ultra-violet blue light that drives cell metabolism and is fired at the moment of DNA cell division. It is the same light that fires or flashes at the moment of crystallization of information into matter, the precipitation of a crystal into form.
     According to Winter, “Precipitation is the crystallization seeded by wave symmetry, nested by the focus of attention/touch.” (P33)

Alice Bailey in her book The Consciousness of the Atom writes:

“We have seen that the atom of chemistry, for instance, demonstrates the quality of intelligence,
it shows symptoms of discriminative mind and the rudiments of selective capacity.
Thus the tiny life within the atomic form is demonstrating a psychic quality - take the atom that goes to
the building of form in the mineral kingdom; it shows not only discriminative selective mind, but elasticity.”P68

“Let us endeavor to realize that there is no such thing as inorganic matter, but that every atom is a life.
Let us realize that all forms are living forms, and that each is but the vehicle of expression for some
indwelling entity.”  P74

    Dr. Charles Littlefield, in his books The Beginning and Way of Life and Man, Minerals, and Masters, states:

"My first discovery was that the force of nature through which mind controls the mineral salts of organic life...this is the vital force of plants, animals, and man. This force is a subtle magnetism generated by the evaporation of water. The subtle magnetism can be modulated by man's mind and can build it into thoughtforms. In addition to this, you shall discover, then, the force through which the creative mind acts upon matter in the beginning, and you shall bring this force into vibratory agreement with its own creative state of mind. Then it can also act upon matter. If in addition to this, you shall prepare matter in the same delicate manner, by the same process nature used in the beginning, this material will respond to the mental images as it did then.  This law of energy agreement, which I have expressed, is vibratory harmony that is equal in rate of vibration. While agreement in material composition is expressed as chemical equilibrium, it is balanced in material proportions. When you have this energy agreement, you have a vibratory harmony. If now the vibratory proportions are exactly those to give expression to a certain rate of vibration of the vital force and this rate corresponds to the rate of vibration of mind image, then that image will become a living form, whether it be reptile or human. This  necessary law of agreement dominates all organic matter from amoeba to man"

    This means that life could be brought into form by a single thought. This is how thought forms are brought into manifestation. although perhaps complex in description, we are doing this everyday, unconsciously. We are able, by developing the appropriate skill, to do this consciously.

    Marcel demonstrated this when growing cholesterol esters on a micro slide during his lunch hour. As the crystals grew, he focused his mind on the liquid and held in consciousness an image of the Blessed Virgin. Below is the photo he was able to capture.

GEOLOGY 

 

CRYSTAL FORMATION
    Igneous Rock
    Crystals emerge in the process of the cooling of magma or molten rock of several thousand degrees Celsius. As it cools the magma is unable to maintain various materials in a liquid state. Throughout the various stages of cooling assorted matter precipitates out of the liquid state until eventually all the material becomes solid.
    It is in this process of precipitation that rocks, crystals, and assorted minerals arise. Minerals appear when the solid formed from the magma is homogenous whereas rocks develop when the solid formed is comprised of several types of minerals.                                                                                                                             
    Rocks and minerals formed directly from the cooling of liquid magma are called igneous or magmatic. Magma is a moving liquid state from which various minerals will develop. It can be thought of as the potential or implicate order of the mineral state.
    The elements (unmanifest intention) contained in the magma determine what minerals will rise from
its undifferentiated state. The composition of magma differs from place to place around the world so
different minerals will form in different locales. 
    External factors such as heat, pressure, and cooling will cause different minerals to form from the same potential state due to the variation in the external influences. The process of crystallization and the variable in this process will determine what arises from the magmatic potential. Minerals that are created in this way are called primary. Depending upon where they are formed they are referred to as volcanic (from volcanoes or lava flows), or plutonic (intrusive), meaning from underground. The name plutonic is derived from the god Pluto who was considered to rule the underground (or unconscious).
Such formations intrude into existing rock formations and may be of three types:

Liquid magmatic

Pneumatolytic

and

Hydrothermal

 
Vulcanites
    Igneous rocks that usually contain very tiny minerals or crystals are called Vulcanites.
An example of this would be pumice.
     Another type of vulcanite is obsidian, which is formed when lava cools quickly and forms rocks with
no crystals. Obsidian is a quickly formed glass-like mass that is not a rock or crystal and has an amorphous or irregular molecular structure. Like all glassy rocks, they have an amorphous molecular structure and will not store information or hold a charge. They are not crystals. Crystals, on the other hand, have a very precise and regular molecular structure. The importance of this will be discussed later.
    Other Vulcanites include such crystals as moonstone, fluorite, kunzite, the various quartzes, and so on.

 

Sedimentary Rocks
    On the surface of the planet the impact of the elements of wind and water will greatly change the
pre-existing rock formations. This is called weathering and causes the erosion of everything on the surface of the earth. Large and small particles broken off and moved by the process of weathering tend to gravitate to the lower lying areas. Avalanches are a very dramatic example of this. Rivers and streams often transport the material moved by such processes. The flowing water moving over rocks will, over time, result in the polishing of  these rocks. An example of this is river quartz; a smooth polished stone that looks like it was polished in a lapidary tumbler. In fact it was polished in nature’s tumbler: a river or stream.

  The process of weathering and erosion creates sand from the many small fragments that are broken
down over eons of time. Many small particles of minerals are found in mud with some being so small
that they become dissolved in the water as salt, for example. To the extent that the water continues
to flow it will carry these particles from place to place. When the flow stops the particles will settle, building up over time, forming sediment and eventually sedimentary rock. 
Examples of this are selenite, calcite, dolomite, pyrite, and globular pyrite (commonly called boji stones).
    When rocks are close to the surface of the earth they are impacted by water in the form of rain, run-off, and so on and this causes elements in the water to penetrate the rocks through cracks and crevices.
Some of these chemicals will dissolve the rock to a greater or lesser degree creating the release of elements that can form other substances. These sedimentation processes usually occur between the surface of the earth and the water table.
    This zone is known as the oxidation zone because oxygen from the atmosphere is still active here and
affects the development of the rocks and minerals.  Oxidation is the release of electrons and is a process
through which mineral compounds can be formed. When atoms of a metal, for example, release electrons these atoms become ions and are able to form new compounds or be dissolved in liquids. Minerals that are typically found in this oxidation zone are azurite, malachite, chrysacolla, turquoise, and dioptase.
    Next to the water table is the cementation zone where solutes are precipitated out and metal ions
become neutral metal atoms once more. This is opposite to what occurs in the oxidation zone.
This is where metals like silver and copper are found.
    Through sedimentary formation, the process of weathering causes the dissolution of various rocks
and the substances released and eroded into solution will later combine with other elements to form
new minerals.

 

Metamorphic Formation
    Rocks deep within the earth are subject to intense pressure and heat from the magma that is continually present. The currents of the magma within the earth cause the tectonic plates to be continually moving like ice upon water. In some areas these plates overlap and buckle result in the dramatic creation of mountains. It is thought that only 10% of the mass is pushed upward in this process. 90% is pushed downward. Mountains usually form in long chains such as the Rocky Mountains that divide North America.
    The movement and pressure of this process causes the various rocks involved to restructure themselves to accommodate the new environment. Randomly positioned crystals often become ordered and under the pressure align crossways to the force of the pressure. These crystals are squeezed and sometimes material extrudes from the rocks to form new minerals. As the minerals are pressed together they may exchange elements with the moving rock plates. This change and exchange saves space and offers resistance to the pressure resulting in the formation of new rocks.
    Heat also plays a role. The rocks may experience temperatures higher than molten magma and yet the intense pressure prevents it from liquefying. The rock will become transformed and is known as metamorphic rock. Metamorphic rocks are also formed by compression and by being overlaid and sinking far into the depths of the earth. Examples of metamorphic rock are kyanite, garnet, jade, and marble.

 

CRYSTALLOGRAHY

      There are three parts to the study of crystallography: the chemical, physical, and geometrical aspects.
We will first look at some basics of the chemical constituents of quartz in order to appreciate the matrix through which we will be working.

 


Tetrahedron

 

    Quartz is grown, from solution, during cooling within the earth and is composed of a tetrahedral molecule, silicon and oxygen, to be silicon dioxide (SiO2). The ratio of elements is about 47% silicon and 53% oxygen. There are four oxygen atoms forming a tetrahedron with a single silicon atom in the middle. With a hardness of 7 on Moh's scale, quartz can scratch glass but glass is unable to scratch quartz.

                                                   H2O and SiO2  molecules


                  SiO2 molecules linked together

 

    It generally grows in a right handed spiral from a nucleating site, a tiny particle of silicon. It can, however, form a left hand spiral, or even a combination of both. The spiraling tetrahedra are of a particular spatial ratio. Consciousness contains all the information needed for the crystal to grow into its hexagonal prismatic pattern. The spatial lattice of the crystal can be thought of as a energetic honeycomb, another hexagonal form. If the elements of this unit cell are separated, the cell becomes chaotic, with no information, randomly floating about. memory capacity whatsoever. If the solution cools too fast it becomes a gel, and again the aspect of memory is lost. Silica gel, available at pharmacies, has no memory capacity whatsoever.
    While growth is happening, there is a dynamic going on. The crystal is "alive" and it can be affected by thought. The process can be expanded or contracted, accelerated or decelerated, by thought from an external source.
    The growth is dependent upon temperature, cooling, particles of SiO2 available etc. At the beginning of growth, the information from the initiating seed may not initially create the "perfect" crystal it is programmed for. In this case the initial portion of their growing crystal may be densely milky and opaque. This is a kind of "confusion" on the part of the growing crystal. As growth continues, more and more clarity manifests. Entropy begins to set in and the terminations of the crystal form as, cell by cell, material ceases to accrete to the growing quartz. This dynamic forms the sloping rhombohedra that are the sloping terminations of the crystal. At completion, the vitality of the crystal leaves and it is essentially a shell or skeleton.  It remains this way until we breathe the breath of life into it.

    Like all life forms there is a "life expectancy" to the crystal. When the information transferred through its consciousness reaches completion the vitality leaves. Those that we see in shops and so forth are the remains of a once vital life form. It is up to us to enliven the crystal to help it fulfill its "destiny" with us though love and service. All of the forces in and around the growing crystal are stored within its matrix and will impact any user who has chosen to work with it. These need to be removed before the crystal can become an effective and useful tool. There are various ways to do this, such as degaussing and faceting.
    An atom consists of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons and neutrons are electrically positive
and neutral, respectively, and form the nucleus of the atom. Electrons are electrically negative and form an energetic cloud around the nucleus in what are traditionally considered to be orbits. This is very much like the orbiting of planets around a star. Each orbit is a different level of energy with each being able to maintain a different number of electrons. The first shell, closest to the nucleus can maintain two electrons. Orbits three and four can hold eight each, and shell four can maintain up to eighteen electrons.

    There is a strong tendency for the atom to be in electrical balance so that the positive proton charge
of the nucleus is usually balanced by the negative charge of the electrons spinning around it. Even at this level of existence there is a seeking of balance, which is the core of health and well-being.

    An atom may have only one electron orbiting in a single shell to maintain balance, as in hydrogen, or it may have many up to its maximum in each of multiple shells. Once there are the maximum number of electrons in orbit, the additional electrons must create another shell around the nucleus.

    Atoms do not move freely from shell to shell but require an input of energy for this to happen.
Such input is called a quantum. The movement of the electron from one shell to another is quite strange to our normal linear thinking. The electron does not move through space to the next shell, but rather disappears from its original location and instantly appears in the next shell. This is known as a quantum leap. There is no gradual movement from one shell to another. An electron cannot be halfway between shells or orbital pathways. It is either here or there, it is never in between.
     In regard to the formation of molecules that make crystals, it is the outermost shells that are of interest to us. There are three basic forms of matter with which we are familiar: solid, liquid, and gas. In a gas, the molecules are very loosely held together allowing a rather free and random movement. We can move through a gas, such as fog or mist, with little difficulty. A liquid exists when the molecules have a greater attraction to each other. This attraction or bonding is not strong enough, however, to lock the molecules into a rigid form. The most common example of this is water. A solid is matter in which the attraction between molecules is quite strong and they are held rigidly in place. A crystal forms in the transition from a gas or liquid to a solid.

    There are two types of bonds that hold atoms and therefore molecules to each other.
One is the ionic bond. This is a simple electrical attraction between atoms. An ion is created when an atom gains or loses an electron and therefore the electrical balance is lost. The gain of an electron results in a negative ion whereas the loss of an electron results in a positive ion. When two atoms with opposite charges come near each other a bonding can occur so that the two linking together create an electrical balance

    We see ionic bonding in sodium chloride crystals, i.e. table salt. The sodium atom is lacking an electron, giving it a positive charge (Na+) and the chlorine atom has an extra electron, giving it a negative charge (Cl).
The extra chorine atom locks into the orbit or shell of the sodium atom creating a bond. The crystal formed by these two elements is very brittle and has what is called good cleavage. Good cleavage is when a crystal breaks into flat planes. Such crystals, growing in flat planes or plates, form layers that create the overall form.
    When the molecular bond is weak, as in an ionic bond, there can be a slippage between the planes or plates with little external pressure. This happens when the internal structure of the crystal is made to slide just the distance of one atom. There is an immediate repulsion rather than attraction. Ionic bonding is not particularly strong.

    Another type of bond that can form between atoms is a covalent bond. This occurs when the outermost shells of two atoms are not filled to the maximum. This can happen between two atoms of the same kind. Even though the atoms may be in electrical balance, because there is a strong tendency for electrons to travel in pairs, the two atoms will “decide” to share electrons in order to fill the outermost shells of each. The term “valence” refers to the name given to the electrons that fill the shells. They are called valence electrons. Atoms have a tendency to “want” the outermost shells filled so that there are four pairs of electrons in orbit. An example of this type of bonding is found in quartz crystals.

    These are the building blocks of matter and therefore of all crystals. Atoms form molecules that align themselves in particular geometric patterns depending upon the type of crystal that is forming. Each crystal type is demonstrating a particular aspect of consciousness that is able to use the lines of force through which the molecular or chemical constituents will pattern themselves. It is as if the consciousness “rides” the natural geometry created by the chemistry of the crystals to generate a form through which to manifest.

    The various manifestations of consciousness can be seen in the geometry demonstrated by the primary crystal classifications. The atoms of any crystal form a unit cell of consciousness, which then create a spatial lattice. A lattice is a geometrical arrangement of points in space.  

If  you are not familiar with geometry or crystallography or you think it is difficult, just read this material slowly and use the illustrations. Don’t let the big words intimidate you. It’s the concepts that are important, not the technical language. I realize that in parts some of these descriptions sound like directions on how to assemble what you thought was a simple piece of furniture and you end up needing a dictionary just to read the instructions. Go slowly, use the pictures and be concerned only with conclusions. If you persevere a little, the rewards will be well worthwhile. Love and geometry is the basis of healing and consciousness work although it is not always articulated this way. To understand these dynamics about the crystal is to understand more about yourself.

In the three dimensional world there must be at least three points involved as co-ordinates to determine the position and shape of an object. In crystals these are the lines of force or axes along which the chemical constituents will grow. The vertical axis is called the “C” or central axis. It has a positive and negative pole.

 C axis                          C axis

 

 

   

 

 

 

There are at least two horizontal axes (in quartz there are three). These are designated as “A” and “B”
and each passes through the vertical “C” axis at 900.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The point where “A”, “B”, and “C” intersect is called the axial cross and it is from this pattern that the 6 crystal systems arise. Consciousness will use this model in slightly different ways to create the type of crystal it wants as determined by the chemicals involved. It can be interesting to follow the pattern in each system and notice the effect is has on your consciousness. This can give you an insight not only into the applications of various geometries, but the possible application of particular crystals.

THE HEXAGONAL CRYSTAL SYSTEM

     The hexagonal system is of the greatest interest to us because it is the one on which quartz is patterned. It demonstrates four axes of orientation. We could also call these four axes of intention.
There is a vertical “C” axis with three other axes intersecting it. The three horizontals intersect at 1200 between their positive ends. The vertical axes and the three horizontals intersect at 900. If you were to look at these from above you could see that the three horizontals divide a circle into six equal sections with each polarized to the next.

 

 

    Our interest in the hexagonal system is quartz so we will limit our discussion to just this aspect.
It belongs to the hexagonal/trigonal system, which is the patterning for the crystal growth.

    Two different atoms form quartz: silicon and oxygen. Recalling briefly our discussion of atoms: 
the outermost shell of the oxygen atom has six electrons in orbit and the silicon atom has four. When these two come together a situation is created in which two extra electrons remain when the two outermost shells of silicon and oxygen bond. The result is that these two extra electrons in the silicon atom attract to it another oxygen atom that has six electrons orbiting in its outermost
shell.

     The chemical formula of quartz is SiO2: one atom of silicon (Si) and two atoms of oxygen (O2).
The silicon atom shares two of its electrons with one oxygen atom and two of its atoms with another oxygen atom. The form created is that of tetrahedra that link together in an up to down fashion and create a spiraling chain of linked molecules parallel to the vertical or “C” axis. This spiral will be clockwise or counter clockwise and can sometimes be determined by the external form of the crystal.
The property of rotational direction of the crystal is called enantiomorphism. Most of us would refer to
the crystal being right handed or left-handed. In other words, do the molecules rotate to the right or left?
We will describe later how to determine this from the external form of the crystal.

    Quartz is in the trigonal part of the hexagonal system. What does this mean? A hexagonal prism is an open form that is six sided and parallel to the vertical axis. Ideally this is seen when each side of a quartz crystal is the same width. With the tip or tips of the crystal removed this is what we would see, a hexagonal prism:

    This hexagonal prism forms the body of the crystal, but something a little different happens at the
terminations or tips. Usually there are three primary or dominant (larger) faces and three secondary or
subordinate (smaller) faces on the termination of quartz. To understand why this happens we need to look a little at the trigonal section of the hexagonal crystal system.

 The easiest form to see in the termination of quartz is a positive rhombohedron. It usually forms the dominant or larger set of three faces that form the tip. These faces usually have more luster or are brighter than the three smaller faces. In crystal drawings the positive rhombohedron is designated by “r”. The smaller or subordinate three faces of the termination are formed by a negative rhombohedron that is designated by “z”. 

Trigonal Trapezohedrons

    The positive right trigonal trapezohedron that forms is usually not expressed or visible on a crystal of quartz. When it is seen at the junction of the two prism faces (“m”) and the positive rhombohedron (“r”) and shows as a trapezohedral planar shape with high luster or brightness and is designated by the letter “x”.

Trigonal Pyramids

    This form will be found at the junction of the positive rhombohedron (“r”) and the prism face (“m”), which is in line vertically with the negative rhombohedron (“z”). It forms an elongated rhombus shaped face and is rarely present. 

     These forms can be used to determine, externally, the “handedness” of a quartz crystal. This means that to determine the direction in which the SiO2 molecules are spiraling or braided around the “C” axis of the crystal:

1.       Determine which alternating set of 3 faces is largest and has the greatest luster.
The set of dominant faces is the positive rhombohedron (r).
The smaller faces are the negative rhombohedron.

2.      Hold the crystal with its termination upward and rotate it horizontally until the
positive rhombohedron faces you.

3.      If the trigonal trapezohedron (x) and the trigonal pyramid (s) are on the lower right of the positive rhombohedron (r), it is a right-handed crystal.

4.      If the trigonal trapezohedron (x) and the trigonal pyramid (s) are on the lower left of the positive rhombohedron (r), the crystal is left-handed.

5.      If both situations described in steps 3 and 4 exist then the crystal is what is known as a Brazilian twin and it is both left and right handed.
Brazil twins are common enough but to see all the faces displayed is very rare.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


    What are known as twins can form when two or more of the same crystal grow together.

Brazil or Dauphine twins occur when crystals penetrate one another during growth and have parallel axes.
With the Dauphine twins the threefold are rotated 180o to each other. Often triangles or four sided diamond shapes can be seen on the terminations or face of the crystal. These are often prosaically called "recorder" or "library" crystals.

Brazil twins seems to be joined at the bottom and is if one crystal is growing out of the other.
The most well known twinned crystal is the Herkimer Diamond. It grows in a series of concentric rings in its growth solution. It virtually floats in a solution of SiO2. The solution itself is usually in a pocket of dolomite.

 

 

 

INTELLIGENCE MATRIX

     Quartz crystal, the stable low temperature form of silica, begins its life from a hot mineral rich vapor or supersaturated solution[2] of silicon dioxide (SiO2) deep within the earth in caves, pockets, crevices, or tunnel like formations. Alpha quartz, which is the form with which we are concerned, forms at about 5730C or less and at approximately one atmosphere of pressure. The temperature can change if the pressure changes. Deep within the earth there may be greater pressure and the alpha quartz will form at a higher temperature. Regardless, as this solution cools a unit cell or seed cell of quartz forms and adheres to a silica-based matrix such as granite or sandstone. The nucleating site for the formation of the initial seed can be a speck of dust or silica present in the host site. This unit cell is a tetrahedral shaped molecule composed of four atoms of oxygen with a single silicon atom suspended within. The ratio of silicon to oxygen in quartz is approximately 47% silicon dioxide and 53% oxygen. Sometimes the initiating seed will precipitate right out of the supersaturated solution. This can happen through cooling as well as a mechanical shock or movement in the environment.

    The crystal grows by accretion with atoms or ions from the SiO2 solution, layer upon layer, slowly growing itself into the form of quartz with which we are all familiar. Each atom is laid down where there is present the greatest number of bonding sites to other silicon or oxygen atoms. At any given moment in the growth of the crystal, this is the area of greatest energy. In a hydrothermal environment it is often the direction from which the solution is flowing. In a completed crystal this direction can sometimes be determined by noting the dominant face. This is where the greatest amount of nutrient was supplied and this would be the surface that faces the supply/flow of silicon dioxide.

    The primary unit cell or lattice is basically a highly ordered array of spatial harmonics that acts as an attractor or nucleating sight for other SiO2 unit cells. Over hundreds of millions of years trillions of these cells link together and through a spiraling motion layer upon layer of silicon dioxide is put down in the geometric patterning described above until the crystal reaches completion terminating in a point. Externally, layers can sometimes be seen as lines on the crystal face. A miner once told me that each line could represent one million years of growth.

  

 

 

   





 

 


    Each unit cell contains all the information needed to generate the ultimate form:
the hexagonal or six-sided shape we know as quartz crystal. Unless faceted, the external form of the crystal tends to reflect the internal form.
    The unit cell contains this information as a series of Light codes. As mentioned earlier, these Light codes are a precipitate of higher dimensional frequencies that are stepped down through numerous levels until they manifest as a blue flash as they materialize within the physical plane.

    Just as the internal aspects of the crystal are seldom perfect, neither is the outer form of the crystal.
External influences such as earth shifts, magnetic fluctuations, pressure and temperature changes within the earth affect the crystals as they grow. The completed crystal is a literal physical record or embodiment of its history. Few become the perfect, idealized, hexagonal form found in textbooks. The growing crystal must accommodate to the growing environment. Consequently, there will be many secondary vibrations imposed. The ideal form and potential is often unrealized. From the perspective of healing work these secondary vibrations are undesirable.

    Despite the basic hexagonal pattern created by the accretion of SiO2 molecules onto the nucleating site, the external influences of temperature, pressure, and the extent of saturation of the silicon dioxide solution affect the ultimate form of the crystal. Still, the silicon dioxide grows according to the laws, dynamics and intention imposed by its origin and crystallographic type as described in our brief discussion of quartz crystallography.

    SiO2 molecules form chains or rings that are hexagonal in shape but somewhat two-dimensional. The clusters of molecules will layer one upon the other and cause specific types of patterns to form. They will simultaneously contract and stretch and become slightly off center to one another as they compress. When these rings are moved through space by their stretching and contracting, they become slightly tilted and a three-dimensional form is created and the successive layers are strongly bonded to each other. Energy is stored within the rings of silicon dioxide molecules. There are also changing vibrational modes within the atoms of each molecule that cause a luminescence within the liquid crystal form of the quartz, as it shifts from one mode of vibration to another, just before it precipitates into its solid state. The luminescence is a specific frequency of light. The vibrational pattern also keeps the energy of the molecule internalized so it can be modulated. Each of the hexagonal rings in the crystalline chain broadcasts an energy or vibration that resonates throughout the entire form.

    The growth environment of the crystal with consequent distortions, impurities, and irregularities affects all of this.

     The growth of quartz is the accretion of molecules to the surface of the developing mineral. The molecules lay down side by side and on top of each other around the surface of the crystal. Very frequently a crystal will show distortions in its fundamental form geometry.

              Why?

              According to Holden and Holden in their book Crystals and Crystal Growing:

1.      Distortions in the form of a crystal can happen due to variations in the concentrations of the solution around it as it grows. This can result in one or two
sides of the crystal growing faster than the others. In other words the various sides
or the crystal have different growth rates.

2.      The face of the crystal that has adhered to the growth matrix will not grow.
This is the end of a quartz crystal that is flat of appear to be ragged or broken.

3.      When growing from a supersaturated solution the crystal depletes the material from the solution, making the solution less dense. This causes a density current or flow that moves up the sides of the crystal. As this current flows up the crystal it deposits more material on the sides of the mineral. The further up the current flows the less material it carries as each time Si02 is laid down the solution is depleted. Consequently more material is deposited at the bottom of the crystal than at the top creating a slower growth rate on the faces at the top than at the bottom.

4.      A change in the chemical environment will cause changes or distortions in the growing crystal.

    Quartz always crystallizes along certain lines of force and at specific angles. As mentioned, these axes are lines of force and in quartz there are four of them with three being at 120o to each other. These three axes are perpendicular or at right angles to the primary “C” (center) or growth axis. Regardless of the differences in the final form of the crystal, the relationship of the angles of the crystal faces remains constant.

    We see in crystals what is called the law of constancy of interfacial angles.
This means that the adjacent corresponding faces in any given crystal are the same for every crystal of its mineral type. As stated, in quartz this is 120o. The angle between each face on the body of the crystal and its corresponding termination face is about 141o. If a right angle (90o) is subtracted from the termination angle, the remaining angle is 51o. It is actually 51o 43minutes. This is close to the Cheops pyramid. Because of this quartz demonstrates pyramid angle energy dynamics. 

     Internal to the crystal, the interlattice angle (the bonding angle between adjacent SiO2 molecules)
of quartz is related to the basal angle. The basal angle is 1/2 of the angle of the tip of the crystal.
The interlattice angle of quartz is 90o minus the basal angle, which is 38o. Therefore the interlattice angle is 52o. This is also close the angle of the base of the Cheops pyramid. The 52o angle is found at the point where the body of the crystal meets the tip. This is also called the girdle.

 

RESONANCE BETWEEN QUARTZ AND WATER

   

 

 

 

 

The interlattice-bonding angle of 52o in quartz is related to the intramolecular and intermolecular angle of the bonds in water. The bonding angle between molecules for water is about 104.5o. This is the angle that exists between the hydrogen atoms of each water molecule. It is virtually double that of the interlattice angle for quartz. It is possible that there is a compatible harmonic between water and quartz because of the similarity of these angles. This could allow a resonant transfer of energies that are stored within the crystal to a significant number of water molecules in any given sample.

    The structure of quartz can replicate itself in water because it is a resonant transfer based on structure and the frequencies produced by that structure. The geometry produces frequency patterns and harmonics that can transfer into water. Very small amounts of energy are required for this transfer. Electromagnetic and acoustical energy can be imparted into the crystal and then transferred into the structure of a grouping of water molecules.

The nature of resonant systems is such that a minimal input can achieve a maximal output. Resonance develops between quartz and water based on structure and frequency and small amounts of energy. Water will take on the same crystallographic pattern as quartz. This will be described in greater detail in the chapter on water.

    Another dynamic intrinsic to quartz is that of interpenetrating tetrahedra, the Star Tetrahedron or the Star of David. It is a converging of ascending and descending forces. When one looks at the idealized representation of the four axes of the crystal, one sees the vertical “C” axis and three others perpendicular to the growth plane at 120o to each other. The two interpenetrating triangles of the Star of David can easily be superimposed onto this pattern.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The basic effect of this template is to induce a standing wave pattern[3] that can be qualified by the energies of the user. One use of this pattern is a protective psychic shield. This is also characteristic of aspects of the Human Energy Field or Merkaba. Quartz, especially when tuned properly, is very effective in activating and stabilizing this field. This use will be described in greater detail later.

    As mentioned previously, it has been suggested that the helical pattern of quartz and the helical pattern of DNA exhibit the same ratio. According to Dan Winter, again from his book "Alphabet of the Heart," the DNA spiral pattern demonstrates in one 3600 turn of its helix a ratio of 34:20. This refers to the distance of a single 3600 turn of a DNA strand being 34-angstrom[4] units in the direction of the axis of the strand while the width of the molecule is 20-angstrom units. This relationship of 34:20 is the Golden Mean Ratio of 1.618 and is the only ratio that allows complete information or geometrical pressures to cascade up or down the harmonic series without any loss of power or geometry.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 It has also been suggested that this relationship exists in the molecular pattern of quartz, water, bone, fascia and cerebro-spinal fluid. This being the case, it is quite apparent why quartz is able to be such an effective tool, as a resonant oscillator, with the human body and able to facilitate the healing process. When used properly an appropriately faceted and tuned quartz crystal can act as a bridge between one individual and another and one dimension and another.

    Quartz and DNA allow information or energy to reach between worlds of scale by this golden mean ratio. This happens through a wave activity and the braiding of long wave data fields to short wave data fields.

 

COLORED QUARTZ

     There are variations or alterations that can happen to quartz with which most of us are familiar.
These alterations are called defects.

Sometimes when a crystal is growing it will grow around a foreign substance or impurity and include it as part of itself. We see this in rutilated and tourmalinated quartz when another mineral has been included and has grown within a quartz crystal.

An atom of a foreign substance that has a similar lattice pattern or order can periodically replace an atom of the primary crystal resulting in what is called a mixed crystal. We see this in alum where potassium sulfate and aluminum sulfate mix to form potassium aluminum sulfate (alum). Sometimes chromium sulfate and potassium sulfate will mix to form potassium chromium sulfate or chrome alum, which is purple in color rather than clear. 

SMOKEY QUARTZ

 

Smokey quartz is formed by the intrusion of minute amounts of aluminum into the lattice of the crystal. There is a substitution of some of the silicon atoms with aluminum. Together with the effects of natural radiation in the growing environment the crystal becomes dark. If there is no aluminum present in the crystal it will not become dark. According to Marcel Vogel the radiation causes lattice site vacancies or a vacancy impurity in the molecular structure of the crystal. This means that an electron is eliminated from an oxygen atom that is adjacent to one of the silicon atoms. This vacancy or “molecular hole” allows the crystal to absorb rather than reflect light and it becomes darkened to the degree of actual vacancies existing. Marcel found that such a crystal, if irradiated with radiation from a dental x-ray device,  will absorb radioactivity. This can be measured with a Geiger counter or the Omega 5. A person, who has been exposed to radioactivity, can transfer some of this into a smokey quartz and then clear the crystal. Continued such treatment can reduce the radioactivity absorbed by an individual from the initial source.

       Bombarding a clear crystal with very high levels radiation can also create lattice site vacancies. Quartz treated like this usually becomes opaquely black. Natural smokey quartz is usually translucent. Regardless of the source of the radiation, the application of heat to a smoky quartz will cause the crystal to become either clear again or to have a slight amber color.

        This can happen simply by leaving the crystal exposed to sunlight for a prolonged period of time.
Leaving smokey quartz on a window ledge where sunlight can come through the glass for a few hours each day and heat the crystal will result in it becoming clear eventually.

CITRINE, AMETHYST, AND AMETRINE

 

             

 

 

 

 

Sometimes impurities can intrude into the crystal lattice in very minute proportions, as little as parts per million. These impurities are usually metals or salts that find there way "into what are called interstitial defects. The most common of these intruders is iron. Depending upon how the iron is intruded into the crystal the result can be either a citrine or an amethyst.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Citrine is caused by the presence of a particular form of iron, colloidal ferric hydroxide, (F+3) replacing some of the silicon atoms in the growing quartz crystal.

The result is the alteration of the color from clear to a spectrum ranging from lemon yellow to a brownish orange hue.

The blue and red that is sometimes seen in amethyst is caused by the intrusion of a form of iron (Fe+4) replacing a few of the silicon atoms in quartz. This form of iron absorbs all colors except the red and blue and gives amethyst its violet hue. It is caused by natural radiation in the environment affecting the iron. Usually the color appears in bands or layers due to the presence of the iron impurities being in bands or layers. This is one way of discerning a natural from a heat-treated crystal.

Another type of quartz, ametrine, is a combination of amethyst and citrine. The iron impurities affect the crystal in the ways described above, but both occur within the same crystal. The result is a layered banding of violet and gold.

The darkness of an amethyst or citrine can be enhanced or deepened by heat treatment.
    Some practitioners think that these heat-treated crystals are not satisfactory for meditation or healing applications. This is something that must be determined by each individual to his other own satisfaction. Much of the commercially available gem quality citrine and amethyst are heat-treated.
    In general, natural, non-heat treated quartz has color streaking. This means that if one holds an untreated amethyst or citrine up to the light there will be streaks of darkness and lightness in the color. Heat-treated pieces tend to exhibit uniform color. This test is not always true, but it is a valuable “rule of thumb”.

ROSE QUARTZ

   

 

 

 

 

Rose quartz shows color from very light pink to a quite deep rosy red. The color is caused by impurities of phosphorous and aluminum. Other sources list traces of manganese, titanium, and lithium as the color agents. Usually rose quartz grows in what is called a “massive form” rather than the crystalline form we associate with the clear quartz. This is why we usually see rose quartz in large blocks or chunks.
Mostly, it is opaque, but translucent specimens are found from time to time. 

PHANTOM QUARTZ

   


As a crystal is growing there may be other minerals in the growth environment. Often a crystalline “dust” will settle on the surface of the forming quartz crystal, sometimes only on the upper facets forming the tip creating a layer of quartz particles or even another mineral. As the crystal grows this “dust” is included and appears as a ghostly image within - a phantom or ghost. Sometimes so much “dust” has gathered or been included that it appears as if an entire other crystal is within the primary crystal. This secondary crystal can be of varying colors. If the “dust” is composed of another mineral such as chlorite, the phantom will appear to be green. 

 

MILKY AND VEILED QUARTZ

              Milky crystals occur when the solution from which the crystal is growing fills many of the open spaces on the surface of the mineral where molecules are being laid down. The program within the initiating seed crystal is not encoded properly into the beginning body of the crystal and there is a kind of confusion that result in dense opaque milkiness. Sometimes before molecules of Si02 in solution have a chance to crystallize out onto growing quartz, other molecules are laid down on top of the liquid, trapping it. If this happens enough, the trapped liquid will cause a scattering of light that is seen as clouds or veils within the crystal. Internal "bubbles" may cause what appears to be veils, rainbows, or prisms. The form of the cloudiness or veiling will depend upon the patterning of the vacancies occupied by the entrapped solution.

    Other minerals, such as rutile or tourmaline, may become part of the quartz crystal as it grows and includes the external mineral.

 

Rutilated Quartz
 


INCLUSIONS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inclusions can occur in quartz in two ways.

1.      There can be pre-existing minerals that formed earlier and crystals of quartz grew around them. This process if frequent with inclusions of rutile, tourmaline, hematite, and ruby. Rutilated and tourmalinated quartz are common examples of this.

2.      Minerals can be floating in the hydrothermal fluid from which quartz is growing and they deposit on the developing crystal. As the quartz continues to grow it “includes” the deposited minerals. This is seen frequently with chlorite inclusions and is the process in which phantom crystals can form.

 

ASTERISM (Star Crystals)

   

 

 

Star Ruby

 

 

   When quartz forms at high temperatures other chemicals may be dissolved within its matrix. As cooling happens the dissolved material exolves out of the quartz and into discrete mineral particles. Usually, in quartz, this chemical is TiO2 (rutile). Rutile is a thin hair-like crystal and in quartz it can orient itself along the three horizontal axes that are at right angles to the “C” or central axis. 
   When light is shone onto such quartz that has been made into a sphere it reflects back the light along the six lines of the horizontal axes. To see this one must look down the “C” axis of the crystal.
It will seem as if a star appears. This phenomenon can happen with clear and rose quartz as well as other types of crystals such as rubies and sapphires.

DOPING CRYSTALS

The substitution of one atom for another in a crystal is known in the computer industry as “doping” the crystal. Crystals of silicon are often “doped” to make them usable as computer components. Germanium crystals will often be made to have atoms of arsenic or gallium creating substitutional or interstitial impurities in order to make them effective as electrical components.

Synthetic quartz is often “doped” with other chemicals to give it color. Cobalt, for example will make the crystal an electric blue.

      If one was growing crystals of quartz, or any other crystal, it is possible to alter the crystal to function in a certain specific way by “doping” it with consciousness. Projecting the energy of one’s consciousness into the crystal as it is growing, or into the seed, to create the matrix one wants does this. As the crystal grew “atoms of consciousness” could be introduced into the crystal as either substitutional or interstitial intrusions. This could also be accentuated by the physical “doping” of the crystal with other chemical elements such as particular rare earth elements.

 

CRYSTALS FOR HEALING

Clear, smokey, and citrine quartz are the crystals with which we are primarily dealing in this work.
For the most part, amethyst and ametrine have been excluded, as it is very rare to find the quality of this form of quartz necessary to create the type of healing instrument discussed here. Most amethyst has too many inclusions, fractures and so on for it to be of value for this kind of work. Long single crystals of optical amethyst are also very rare. Short, stubby points are far more common. Exceptions to this, of course, would be synthetic quartz. The growth and use of these crystals will be discussed later. Synthetic crystals, in general and quartz in particular form an important aspect of the healing tools available to us and an understanding of their potential use and possibilities is an important consideration.

Although other forms of quartz, and other crystals in general, may have healing applications, we will be dealing exclusively with quartz in these pages. Many of the dynamics of working with quartz, as outlined here, can be applied to any crystal to determine its potential application. These are uses that each of us must determine for ourselves rather than rely upon a “cookbook” kind of listing that has been determined by others. The use of particular crystals is often situational and generalizing applications may not be advisable. The response of one individual to a particular crystal may not carry over to another. Always respect the situation and the individual.

 

CRYSTAL GEOMETRY

     Crystals are held in form by an arrangement of atoms, the lattice, which is maintained in a spatial array by their geometric patterning. Studying its form geometry and understanding the use of the consciousness that has manifested this form can in part, determine the application of any given crystal. In the case of quartz this geometric patterning is the tetrahedron.

              The tetrahedron is one of five primary shapes, known as the platonic solids that meet the following requirements:

1.      All the exterior points fit on the surface of a sphere;

2.      All the edges are equal

3.      All the surfaces are the same, and

4.      There is one common angle inside

As well as the tetrahedron there are four other shapes considered as Platonic solids.

They are:

·       The cube

·       The octahedron

·       The icosahedron

·       The dodecahedron

The energetic pattern of each of the Platonic solids is nested around the physical body as line of force that constitutes the human energy field.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In quartz, the tetrahedral form of the unit cell will pass through various stages as it “grows”. When two of the cells link together a cube will be formed. The rotation of this cube around the central axis will generate a hexagonal pattern. The spiraling of the unit cells either to the left or the right (or sometime both as in twinning) will determine the polarity of the crystal. The geometry of the spiraling tetrahedral molecules is the golden mean.

 

THE GOLDEN MEAN

The golden mean ratio (1:1.618) is seen when a line is divided into segments such that the relationship of the whole to the larger segment is the same as the relationship of the larger segment to the smaller.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to Dan Winter, when a spiral is patterned with this ratio it becomes the most efficient energetic pattern for the transmission of energies from higher to lower domains or from lower to higher. There will be no loss of information or energy.

The Golden Mean is a very fundamental pattern in nature. It can be seen in the arrangement of seeds in a sunflower, the spiraling of the pinecone or the patterning of leaves at each level on a plant such as a philodendron. It is also present in the braided coding of the DNA with each of our cells.
As stated, it is the most effective relationship for the communication of information or energy between lower and higher levels of scale and vice versa. The arc of the curve remains the same, as it becomes larger and larger.

 

 

 

 

The matrix of a crystal is relatively highly ordered and stable. It is this that gives it the ability to maintain the integrity of information that has been programmed into it. This is true of both the internal and external geometry of the crystal.

       There is a simple rule of thumb that can be kept in mind in regard to the use
of a crystal:

 

Chemical composition + form geometry = use

Randall Baer

 

    This means that the external form geometry has a direct bearing on the potential application of a given crystal to be utilized. After considerable experimentation, it was found that the natural external geometry of quartz was not adequate to meet its great potential.

 

PROPERTIES OF THE CRYSTAL

    There are various properties that quartz crystals demonstrate that make them useful.
The most well-known and commonly utilized feature of quartz is its piezo electric property. This means that when mechanical pressure is applied to a crystal, a small electric charge is generated on its surface due to the displacement of electrons.

 

PIEZO-ELECTRICITY     

    The piezo-electric property of quartz is used frequently to create igniters for gas stoves and barbecues. There is a small device built into many stoves and ovens that when used will cause a spark to be generated and the flow of gas or propane will be ignited to flame. What is occurring here is that when the button of the igniter is pushed a small piece of quartz inside the unit is impacted causing a small electrical charge to travel along the surface of he crystal until it meets a conductor (usually a tiny metal rod). The charge will then travel long the conductor, which is pointed at the site of the glowing gas or propane. When spark meets fuel, fire appears. These tiny igniter units can be purchased at most department or hardware stores and are inexpensive.
    When pressure is applied to quartz an electrical charge is created. When an electrical charge is applied to quartz, oscillation or vibration is created. This vibration can be made audible through electronic enhancement. These charges flow along the electronic axes of the crystal. Quartz is considered to be anisotropic, meaning that its properties are different in every direction. In regard to its piezo-electric property, quartz will carry a charge along its electronic axes, but will act as an insulator in other directions.
    There is a multi-dimensional aspect to the piezo-electric effect also. The charge generated can cross a semi-permeable membrane between dimensions. Each dimension has its own charge threshold before there is an information transfer across the membrane. Inter-dimensional doorways or gates can be activated by adequate directional charge build up. These dimensional gates or membranes are electro-magnetic-like in nature and within our 3D earth plane are maintained by the magnetic fields of the planet. As the magnetic fields of the earth decrease, as is currently happening, access to other domains of consciousness, other dimensions, becomes much easier. 
Although this can be done without the use of a crystal, the added coherency and amplification offered by the use of a Vogel-cut crystal, or other precise and appropriate configurations of quartz, makes the process even easier.

The greater the coherency of the initiating stimulus, the greater will be the response from the crystal. It is possible, through various disciplines, to bring greater coherency to our consciousness and energy fields. The application of lasered light has great potential in this area of exploration.
The laser we all have available to us is the Light of an open, balanced consciousness. It can be channeled through the head centers that form what is known as the spiritual triad creating a laser-like force.

 

PYRO-ELECTRICITY

    Quartz also demonstrates the pyro-electric property. If heat is applied to a crystal it will show a change in vibration and become more electrical. This makes it useful for certain types of temperature measurement.

    This conversion of energy from one form to another (pressure to electrical, heat to vibration) is called transduction. Therefore, we can also say that quartz crystal is an energetic transducer or converter. It has the ability to change energy from one form to another.


MAGNETISM

    A crystal can generate a non ferric magnetic field. This charge can be transferred into water and measured with a gauss meter. Magnetism demonstrates a polarity and this can be seen in quartz. Adjacent sides are of opposite charge to each other as are the two terminations. This dynamic creates a movement of energy within the crystal that can be controlled by the breath and mind of a user.
 

 


TRIBOLUMINESCENCE

    When two crystals are rubbed together, a light will be produced within the crystal. This is best done by rubbing the prism edge of one crystal with the prism face of another. The triboluminescent effect here is being elicited by friction. The sparks expected of any piezo-electric material may be seen, but in the dark, a glow within the crystal will also be visible. This light is called triboluminescence. It is not an electrical phenomenon, but a luminescence, as is the light emitted from each cell of our body. Luminescence is a cool light, the type we see in glow worms and fireflies, as opposed to incandescence, the hot light of a burning filament with which we are familiar within the light bulbs in our homes.

 

 

INFORMATION STORAGE

    Quartz and other crystals have the capacity for information storage or memory. According to the September 5, 1994 issue of Newsweek magazine, Stanford University physicists have demonstrated the first fully digital model of a device that stores information as a hologram within the subatomic structure of a crystal. The scientists were able to store and retrieve a holographic image of the Mona Lisa. The particular crystal held only 163 kilobytes of memory, but it is expected that these holographic units could store up to one million megabits. The short article says that crystals store information in three dimensions and could be ten times faster than the fastest systems currently available. It was not mentioned what type of crystal is being used, but the capacity for information storage is intrinsic to all crystal, although some tend to demonstrate this ability better than do others.

    All of these properties can be found in unfaceted quartz. When formed into a precise geometric and symmetrical tool these abilities can be harnessed and used in a coherent and meaningful way beyond what has already been described. Faceting a crystal, if done properly and with loving intent, heightens and refines the innate capability of the mineral.

 

 CONDUCTIVITY

    Quartz is electrically neutral and non-conductive. The energetic input necessary to upset this precarious neutrality is minimal. This is because the trillions of lattice sites within the crystal create a resonant system. Once a critical number of these lattices are vibrating the entire crystal will respond in a resonant oscillation. The input to generate a maximum output is minimal. This is the primary advantage of a resonant system: minimal input achieves maximum output.

This is a non-linear effect. If we visualize a series of dominoes stretching from the West Coast of the United States to Paris, each imaginary domino increasing 1% in size from its predecessor, the size of the final piece would approximate the size of the Eiffel tower. Knock the first domino over with barely a touch and it would topple the next and the chain reaction begins. Each domino knocks over the next, which is 1% largest in size. Imagine the impact of the final Eiffel tower size structure! The original force put into the system of dominoes to bring this tower down was only a slight touch! Minimal input can result in maximum output.

    As a dramatic example of the potential for quartz crystals, beyond the subjective, Marcel Vogel told me that he once demonstrated the physical power of one of his crystals to convert energy. Although this was done with an especially faceted Vogel-cut crystal, which will be described later, it is worthy of note at this point.

 

According to Marcel:

              “I have made electricity with the crystal...up to 75 volts, using a crystal like this (a Vogel-cut®). It’s an induced voltage...a DC (direct current) voltage. I put a crystal in the middle of a box (the box was hardwood, mahogany, and six sided or hexagonal) and then I made a coil of copper, and then silver-tin wire wrapped 250 times. I had another coil on the outside made of nickel wire. There were primary and secondary wires that came out to a voltmeter. I drew my breath in and pulsed the breath and out came voltage from the crystal. I tried it with uncut crystal as well, but it didn’t work.

     “I have the equipment in my lab to make greater voltage, but I haven’t gone into this.
There is so much else to do and those who saw me do this became very disturbed.”[5]

      Marcel went on to tell me that he had done the same experimental format and was able to cause a household light bulb, wired into the circuit, to illuminate!

How is it that the crystal is able to do this?

One explanation is the piezo-electric effect already described. The pressure from the force of the operators thought impinges upon the crystal thereby eliciting the piezo effect. This is dependent upon the intensity and coherence of the operators mental body. Although not everyone is capable of this, it is possible for the skill to be learned. The fundamentals of this technique are described in the section on clearing and charging of quartz. Many individuals using this technique have learned to clear floppy discs and audio tapes of their magnetically stored information.
    Another perspective on the energetic mechanism of crystalline substances, quartz in particular, has been put forth by Don Robins in his 1988 book (out of print) The Secret Language of Stone. Robins maintains that there is no such thing as a perfect crystal. The ideal of the perfect lattice within the crystal was created by 19th century researchers who were more interested in fulfilling their ideas of God’s perfect universe than in doing real investigative work. To this end only near perfect specimens of crystals were sampled. Their conclusions were more of a wish-fulfilling fantasy than science. Today’s technology makes this easier for us. We have X-ray diffraction to show us the lattice structure of crystals.

According to Don Robins, the norm in the mineral world is the lattice defect and virtually every crystal has hidden within it universes of imperfection and virtual energies. Vacancies reside in precarious imbalance just waiting for some external hidden treasures of energy.

    One might metaphorically think of these hidden pockets of energy within the imperfect lattice structure as the unconscious of the crystal. With a little coaxing from an external energy source (heat, light, emotion, sound, thought, etc.) large amounts of energy can be released that were once unknown.

    Similarly energy or information can be placed into the imperfect lattice of the crystal through the same modalities (heat, light, sound, emotion, thought, etc.)

     Later we will present methods to access ancient information that may be locked in what appears to an ordinary and mundane rock or crystal, faceted or otherwise.

    Not only are energies hidden within the vacancies of the crystal, but also the intrusion of various substances such as metals (iron, titanium, manganese, etc.) will alter the electric balance of the crystal while at the same time allowing it to maintain electrical neutrality.

    Primary, secondary, and tertiary energy emissions from quartz follow the pattern shown in the diagram below. The most powerful emission is form the tip and therefore it is important that the tips of a crystal remain intact.

   Secondary energies will flow from the facets that slope in toward the tips, and the tertiary energies radiate from the sides of the crystal.

    The energy that is imprinted into a crystal is qualified by the consciousness of the user. The thought held in mind as the crystal is programmed or charged is the qualifying agent. The primary area of this energy conversion in the crystal is the body with the tips basically being entry and exit points.

    It is important to consider the properties of crystals in their multi-dimensional possibilities, beyond the normally accepted three-dimensional parameters. How might these capabilities manifest through other dimensions? How might a fourth or fifth dimensional crystal appear or behave in the third dimension?
    Raw, unfaceted quartz have varying fundamental fields depending upon where and how they were mined as well as their variation in shape due to the distortions caused by stressors present during its growth. Some crystals have very high fundamental fields while others are found to have a very minimal field.

    Synthetic quartz has been found to have virtually no fundamental field.
The measurement of this field is done through instrumentation such as the Omega 5. With such crystals the fundamental field must be externally generated. Without the external stimulus the crystal “feels” lifeless and non-energetic.

 

SYNTHETIC QUARTZ

Synthetic quartz is created in a large iron alloy auto-clave or cooker. Sometimes this “cooker” is called a “pressure bomb”. The iron alloy is especially treated to make its matrix very dense as the auto-clave will operate at pressures ranging from 10,000 pounds per square inch to 40,000 pounds per square inch. The metal is heat and pressure treated to allow it to withstand such intensity.

The entire apparatus may be put into a larger auto-clave. The temperature in the outer vessel is raised to around 35000C and pressurized to near 60 atmospheres. This force eliminates any bubbles, voids or defects. The walls of a small commercial auto-clave are about 3 inches thick with a crystalline coating created on the inside of one side of the vessel to prevent interaction of the metal with the silicon dioxide.

 

 

  

    The material used for making synthetic quartz is natural earth grown quartz, crushed, melted and placed into an autoclave as described above. There is no discernment used or needed in the material used. It can be optically clear or completely cloudy. It is all crushed, melted and the impurities removed.

    Quartz, when it comes out of the ground, has a pattern of consciousness still remaining as the  crystalline template formed by the precipitated light that created the crystal form. It is a template of consciousness. Once crushed and melted this pattern is destroyed. A new one is formed by the controlled and accelerated growth in the autoclave. It can also be "doped" with color by adding various chemicals. Blue, green, aqua, and gold are commonly available. It is a matter of what once wants from a crystal as to whether or not synthetic is a valuable choice.
    None of the information regarding the use of quartz in these pages refers to synthetic material and, in fact, Marcel Vogel was never able to replicate any of his results with this material.
    As previously mentioned one possible addition to the growth of synthetic quartz is the doping of the growing crystal with one’s consciousness so that the crystal might function in exact accordance with the need of the user. It is possible to alter the matrix of a growing crystal through the projection of thought into the forming quartz.

 

THE VOGEL-CUT  CRYSTAL

FACETING A QUANTUM CONVERTER
    A natural crystal from the earth demonstrates the capacity for information storage, energy conversion, amplification, and transfer. It is, however, unable to cohere that energy. This is an important factor if the energy or information is to be stored or transferred while maintaining its integrity.

    Of equal importance is the fact that no two crystals are the same and therefore they are incapable of producing the same precise effects. In the process of creating a meaningful methodology of healing it is important that the results obtained can 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 potential.

    As mentioned previously, unfaceted quartz, by accommodating its growing environment, accretes many undesirable secondary vibrations to it. 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.

    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 crystal.

 

 

 

 

The first shape created by Marcel Vogel was a four-sided bi-pyramidal form.

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 Kabalistic 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 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 an instrument called the Omega 5. The Omega is described in detail on page ? Many people have found themselves in possession of an imitation of a Vogel-cut® crystal and wondered why it doesn’t function as expected.

         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 was initially shaped to have a specific fixed resonance to an aspect of the earth grid: the Cheops pyramid.
 

CREATING A QUANTUM CONVERTER
    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 “I’m cutting rocks here to build whatever it is they’re making! What does it look like I’m doing”

      The second worker, preoccupied with making enough money to satisfy all his needs and wants, responded to the same inquiry saying “I’m making these blocks so that I can feed and clothe my family, pay the rent and keep up with all the bills I have. It’s 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, “I’ve 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 angles of the tips are critical to creating an instrument that is in resonance with the water molecule and to the individual for whom the crystal is being prepared.

       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 or focus.
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 material is sometimes from Siberia, sometimes from Madagascar, and frequently from Brazil. We strive to use optical quality quartz.

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. The natural energy flows of the crystal must be respected. If this is not done the result is a healing piece or medallion that may appear the same as a genuine Vogel-cut®, but is much different energetically.

The next task is to take the rough cut crystal to the lapidary wheels lapping 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 sandpaper 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. The lapidary wheels are like large turntables.

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 facemasks 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 to make sure that it has the correct energy signature rate 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 cracks.

     Finally, the crystal is treated in a way shown to me by Marcel to install a particular permanent programming in it so that it can be used only as an instrument of service.

     Often a crystal will get broken for a variety of reasons. Sometimes this is a result of carelessness, but a crystal can also 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 the crystal needs to be re-tuned or re-cut.

      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. 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. There will be further discussion of this in the chapter on practical application.        

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. The measurement of the crystals was done with the Omega 5.

      I presented these crystals and the findings to Marcel and he laughed saying:

              “You see, I’ve told you before that you can go ahead and try to copy these crystals, but you can’t do it.
Now you know for yourself! There’s much more involved than just cutting crystals into a certain shape.”
(Personal communication)

              Since his passing in 1991, there have been many copies made of Marcel’s crystals. I have tested many of the duplicates and found them to be lacking not just physically, but energetically as well. Each individual, however, must find the crystal that is appropriate for him or her.

COHERENT FIELD

    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 create coherence.

Why is this important?

According to Marcel:

              “This carrier wave must have a coherency to it so as not to mingle with the radiation’s 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.”[6]
 

    The light we generally see comes from all directions and is called incoherent. The definition of incoherent is to come from many directions. When light is passed through a device such as a laser or crystal it can be made coherent, or to move in a single direction. In a laser there are two parallel surfaces and a flash, such as a Zeon flash from a flash lamp on both sides of the specially cut ruby. The light emitted, or flashed, passes through the crystal and strikes a window (Brewster window) and bounces back off the mirrors at the speed of light. It then encounters the light that is just then being generated and the two amplify each other, building a signal. These two are now acting as one. As they encounter the mirrors, they are again reflected back, encounter the source light and again signal amplification occurs. When they emerge from this process the light is coherent, meaning not scattered. They are lasing.
    A laser is Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Once it begins to lase it will be continual until stopped. The ruby laser is only one kind of instrument. Light can be further cohered and amplified by using a different type of crystal.

  

Schematic of Ruby Laser

 

     This same dynamic happens with as Vogel-cut® crystal. Our mind is the flash lamp and the quartz crystal replaces the ruby with mirrored ends. The flash of energy from our mind is reflected back and forth,  between the "mirrored" ends of the crystal, repeatedly encountering itself, building and coherent signal. This coherent signal is very useful in penetrating the incoherent information that is an injury or aberration in the energetic field of an individual.

 

Vogel® crystal as Mind Laser

     In the case of offering “healing” service to another individual, the radiation emitted from the target material would refer to the difficulty 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 distress.

    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 client’s field does not affect the “healer”. This is one of the primary benefits of using a crystal rather than direct “hands-on” healing. The movement of energy through the crystal is one way only.
    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. As we grow as a fetus we are about 90% water. As adults, more than 70% of our physical body is water, a Vogel-cut® crystal, and its resonance to 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 affected by the information transmitted through the fluidic systems of the body that are based on structured water.

    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. Electron spin can be altered, which in turn can alter proton spin, within the nucleus of the atom. This is the means of communicating from and with the zero point or virtual state. This is most likely a resonant effect and is discussed in greater detail in relationship to the soul in the chapter Subtle Energies. 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. 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, delivering the necessary “information” or energetic nutrients can restore balance and coherence.

    “At least one type of record I know of is written in bone, namely, bone fractures and injuries. They can be readily detected, photographed and identified by means of sensing with a crystal held in the hands of an operator. The field is very analogous to that of a magnetic domain that is created on magnetic material by a magnetic recording head. When a magnetic recording is made on tape, there is no change in physical state, but an orientation of the fields that are emitted from the magnetic bits of crystal present in the tape takes place, and a field then emits in space from the surface of the recording tape. This is given the name of a magnetic domain. When a recording head passes over this surface, a magnetic inductive effect takes place, a current is created, and a signal is translated into a series of electrical pulses.

“When a bone is fractured, or severely depressed, a series of signals is created and radiates in space in much the same way as a magnetic domain. These signals, however, will interfere with the normal electrical activity of the organization of that body in that area if it is not erased and cleared.”

“When we suffer a fall, a blow to the head, and various impact injuries, these actions weaken our body and after the normal tissue healing, we never feel quite the same. It is my belief that the bone stores these vibrations and a simple act of demagnetizing the body with a bulk eraser or with the use of a crystal…will clear it of these forces.”[7]

 

METHODS OF MEASUREMENT: THE OMEGA 5
    The first difficulty encountered with the Vogel-cut® crystals was to measure their energetics. It is not enough to observe the subjective effects. If a meaningful technology that can be used by all is to be created, there must be a reliable method of measurement to create a base from which to work.

    The milli-gaussmeter measures magnetic fields and is inadequate to the task. When charged, a crystal demonstrates a field of 0.07 gauss, but this is traditionally thought to be insignificant. With the device attached to alternate facets of a crystal, one can slowly approach the crystal and notice the meter indicate a reading of 0.07 gauss. One or two steps and the meter shows zero. Another one or two steps and the meter again registers 0.07. This is indicative of the individual encountering the radiant fields of the crystal. These fields can be visualized as a series of concentric circles. As the perimeter of each is encountered the milli-gaussmeter shows the contact as 0.07 gauss.
    The charge differential that can be measured using the milli-gaussmeter is somewhat insignificant in comparison to the experimental results observed in various testing procedures that will be described later. Significant results are obtained despite the rather insignificant amount of energy measured from the crystal. There must be some other virtually immeasurable yet powerful energy or force involved either beyond or within the accepted electro-magnetic spectrum. Robert O. Becker has found, for example, that weak magnetic fields can have a greater affect on the body than strong magnetic fields.[8]

Perhaps there needs to be a rethinking of the nature of magnetism. In a conversation, Marcel once told me that it is the magnetic fields that give matter its form. It precipitates quantum waves into particles or solids.

Magnetic fields may have diffraction phenomena just like light. As with white light that when passed through a prism separates into various color-bands, magnetic fields, when passed through an appropriate medium may separate out into component parts. Standard instruments of measurement are inadequate to determine this.
They are also mostly incapable of measuring the fields in and around a crystal.

    So what can be done?

    As was his practice when confronted with difficult situations, such as this, that took him to the very edge of his rational abilities, Marcel took the situation into prayer and asked to be shown a way to measure the faceted crystals that he had recently developed.


 

Semjase:  Prayers are answered
 

    Six weeks later a man arrived at Marcel’s door with a piece of equipment and announced that this was the device that was needed to measure the crystals. Amazed and with childlike glee Marcel asked how to use the instrument.
He was told that he would know!

    The instrument was the Omega 1 and since then four other incarnations of the device have been created with the final version, the Omega 5 being used for much of the fundamental research at Marcel’s lab. We continue to use this instrument in our research.

    According to Marcel, his prayer was heard and the information as to how to construct the instrument needed was relayed to the inventor of the Omega while he was in meditation. The two men had met only once very briefly approximately one year before at a conference and knew each other only by name.

What is the Omega 5?

 


Rumi Da with Omega 5
Hamburg, Germany, 1990

    The Omega 5 is a subjective “radionic” or “psychotronic” type of instrument that measures subtle energy fields beyond the scope of standard scientific equipment. In fact, the energies measured are not even acknowledged by mainstream science although the effects are often clearly visible and demonstrable.

    The values or measurement obtained with the Omega 5 are found by placing the item to be tested in what is known as the witness or sample well. The second finger of the right hand is used to stroke a flat area on the instrument called the “stick plate” while the left hand slowly rotates one of several dials until a “stick” is obtained with the rubbing hand. The stick is a phenomenon in which the finger rubbing the plate feels as if it is immobilized or “stuck” on the surface of the designated area of the instrument. This stick represents a numerical value as shown by the dial being turned. On the Omega 5 a total of nine dials are used giving a series of three 3-digit rates for the sample being studied. A pendulum can also be used to detect the correct values. Both methods utilize the dowsing process. (See chapter on dowsing)

              The Omega 5 presents us with a value for:

1)     a signature for the information band or identity value of the sample being studied

2)     the energetic fields within the sample

3)     the energetic fields surrounding or radiating around the sample

    This instrument produces a low frequency wave that is transmitted by an antenna, which has been built into the machine. The operator can choose a frequency ranging from 2Hz to a 156Hz signal. The second part is a LC circuit which modulates the signal to different frequencies by using a series o f none resistors and two capacitors. The substance to be analyzed is placed in a well. The well is wound with a pick-up coil, which is then hooked, to the resistors and capacitors where the modulations take place because of changes in capacitance. The coil around the well picks up the low Hertz signal from the antenna.

    The operator changes the capacitance and resistance of the circuit by turning the potentiometers and then tries to sense the changes in electrical skin conductivity, which produces the phenomenon of a “stick”. The resonance that occurs between the pick up coil and the capacitors and resistors produces the increase in charge, which results in a “stick”. The operator plays an integral part in the functioning of this system.

    A “stick” may be defined as an increase in friction between the fingers and the sensing areas or rubbing plate. The rubbing plate is a printed circuit coil, which has an amplified signal, put through it from the tuned Liquid Crystal circuitry.

    The color therapy unit of the Omega 5 transmits frequencies that are exactly ten octaves below the frequency of each color on the color selector dial. Octave sub-harmonics are defined by the series: ½, ¼, 1/8, 1/16,1/2n. For the Omega 5, “n” is equal to 10 (the tenth sub-harmonic). Thus the color frequencies are 1/1024th of the actual frequencies of the seven colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and indigo).

    These energetic fields can be thought of as information. Exactly what these fields are is open to speculation. It is likely that we are dealing with information beyond the known electromagnetic spectrum. Subtle energy researchers have called this an etheric field, a scalar field, non-Hertzian or zero point energy, or even tachyon field fluctuations. Tachyons are considered to be theoretical supra-luminal particles. As such they would be either time reversed or moving in a parallel universe. Frequently the term tachyon is not used in its strict scientific sense, but in a more generalized way to mean Life Energy.

    The “virtual state” is considered to be composed of a number of forces, which add up to an apparent zero or nothing. Traditionally zero is zero. In the world of zero point or tachyon energy, the components of zero can be many and varied. Each of the patterns shown below is different but all sum to a zero point.

    Two or more forces may show as zero and though there are no noticeable effects, there may be a hidden potential that reflects the totality of the forces.

              For example:

 

                             -1 +1 = 0;       2 + 3 - 5 = 0;       -5 + 6 -1 = 0

 

 

    Each of these simple equations sums to zero yet each is composed of different factors. To say that zero adequately reflects the component parts is to ignore the numbers. Replace each number with a force and you can see that zero energy may contain forces that are more than the sum of its parts.

     Each of these patterns of force may sum to zero, but this does not mean that the potential inherent in each force vector is not real. Should there be any imbalance created in the potentials there will arise observable effects. If you were to press your hands against each other in front of your chest, with equal force, you would find that one hand pressing against the other creates a situation of no movement. To an observer it seems that there is not enough force to cause one hand or the other to move. Despite this appearance you can readily feel the energy being expended to maintain this equilibrium. It is substantial.

    Conventional electro-magnetic theory does not regard potential as real. Only the field is considered to be real. Potential is normally considered only in terms of its observable manifestation and isn’t seen as being actual in itself.

     In zero point theory the potential is regarded as an emptiness or void that has its own innate reality and is pregnant with real potential even though there appears to be a zero force. This potential is known as the virtual state. Zero point energy can be considered to be potential without any manifestation or observable effect. It is, however, available as an energetic reservoir when the “right” conditions are presented.

    The virtual state is a field of probability. All the observable effects we see, such as light, electricity, gravitation, magnetic fields and so on, are a consequence of variations in the virtual state. It is the ground of our Being from which all manifests David Bohm has called the implicate order. Coherent thought can be enough to precipitate manifestation from the virtual state. It can bring forth a particle from the field or create a movement from the implicate to the explicate.

The external fields generated by the mind can cause an acceleration of the electrons around the body resulting in a force that is potentially strong enough to access the implicate order. When linked to the amplifying and cohering capability of an appropriate crystal the mind’s ability to influence becomes even greater. We can learn to consciously precipitate reality from the virtual state. As we release our fear it becomes possible for us to integrate higher and higher dimensional aspects of Self into the physical body. A crystal can function as a bridging device in this regard.

 

              The Buddha described the virtual state in the Heart Sutra:

 

Form is emptiness and emptiness is form.

 

     Every second, our physical reality is being created. Quantum physics tells us that reality exists as an energetic wave until we focus upon it with intent (albeit usually unconscious) and precipitate wave into particle.

     The virtual state is the energetic blueprint of all manifestation.

    The atmosphere or ambience of a place is the consequence of the encoding of virtual state patterns. These could be forces, intents, and emotions that have been present in the particular location. This state is often perceived psychically. It is information that exists both in and out of time. The combination of forces in a location or substance builds a series of patterns or codes that characterize or identify that item. These forces, when manifest, are intrinsic data fields that exist in and around all form and they contain the data or information that makes a particular form what it is. There is a rhythmic nature to these fields. They will expand and contract in accordance with their relationship to external influences. If these data fields are altered so too is the form that they support.
     Zero point energy can be precipitated by mechanical and electro-magnetic stress. When we release stress that is inherent in emptiness we create a loss of potential which will produce some effect on the physical plane. The cause of this stress release can be within the physical plane itself or existing on some other dimension or consciousness domain. The virtual state manifests from the higher to lower, from the inner to the outer. It is a type of step down process that happens from second to second.

    For the most part our participation in this process of precipitation tends to be unconscious. Most of us are sleepwalkers unconsciously creating and experiencing our world. But the sleeper can awaken and the virtual state can be consciously accessed. Form can be made emptiness and emptiness can be made form.

    Anything that can transform electro-magnetic energy into zero point energy or vice versa is called a translator. A stressed crystal might function as such a translator.

In this case the crystal is a scalar wave resonator. In other words, it is able to resonate with the virtual state or intrinsic data fields that exist with and beyond our 3D environment. It is imperative that such a crystal be very precisely faceted or tuned in both physical and non-physical terms. The substructure or lattice of the crystal can be mentally programmed to contain and act upon specific information. One might be able to access the virtual or quantum state and phase shift a probable reality into a three dimensional actuality. Any third dimensional gain is balanced by the release of stress and the loss or decrease in potential of the virtual state. Materialization and de-materialization become reality.

It should be noted that it is only from our third dimensional perspective that unseen events or objects are potential. From higher dimensional perspectives there is an entire alive and vibrant reality going on.
Our inability to perceive higher frequency worlds does not mean that do not already exist. They simply have no three dimensional existence. We are entranced by the manifest three-dimensional reality that we can observe with our five senses. Reality may be bigger than these senses can perceive, but it is not bigger than we are. We are reality even though we avoid or ignore most of Who we are.

An ability to manifest from the virtual state may be not so much an act of creativity as an act of translation. Patterns of disease are coded at this potential level and can be detected as well as broadcast.
A crystal can be mentally programmed to store information at this level.

Essentially, our nervous system is scalar in nature. This is one of the foundations of healing modalities such as cranial-sacral therapy and other methods that work with the cranial wave or the flow of cerebro-spinal fluid. As mentioned, the nervous system functions as a scalar generator and detector as does the entire planet. We are always already in resonance with planet earth and any healing that happens to each or all of us happens to the planet.

    One can think of this energy more simply as Life Energy. We can call it an information band or intrinsic data field, as they are energetic codes that surround a substance and can be used to identify that substance in much the same way that the periodic table is used to identify chemical elements. As nothing is static, the information band is a composite of the various energetic light codes that surround and penetrate any given form. The information or intrinsic data that is contained in this band affects the physical form it surrounds. Indeed the physical form is precipitate of these light codes as described previously in the growth of a crystal. We are a higher dimensional precipitate. Rather than being a body that has a soul, we are a soul that has created a body from the genetic information provided by each parent. The implications of this are profound.
    The data obtained with any radionic type of device is to be used as a guideline for standard physical testing as well as indicating physical plane correlates that could be found through testing that utilized standard scientific equipment such as spectro- photometry, photomicrography, and so on.

     It has been discovered that the signature value for the Vogel-cut® crystals is 454. This is the same fundamental value found for pure water. This is a basic and fundamentally important discovery. The numbers 454 represent the intrinsic data fields or information band of both water and Vogel-cut® crystals. Unfaceted quartz does not show this value.

 

 

CRYSTALS AND WATER

    The stories of water being transformed by placing a small unfaceted crystal into a gallon of drinking water are often greatly exaggerated. The introduction of virtually any foreign substance into water changes its taste. Subjecting the water to the rigors of scientific testing reveals no physical changes whatsoever. It may be that there are non-physical changes in the water, but this is not usually what the proponents of these ideas are telling us. I am speaking here of three-dimensional chemical changes.

    Even though science does not offer answers to all, it can be a good place to begin. With no basic foundation it is very easy to simply spin fantasies that have no basis in this reality. It is possible, however, to transform water and other fluidic mediums through the use of crystals. But how?

    In magnetics, when a current is applied to a straight length of wire virtually no field is induced. A current is a flow of electrons through the wire. Coil the wire, however, and a field can be detected. If the spacing between each turn is correct the field will be amplified.
    Similarly with water, if there is a flow of water through a straight length of Pyrex tubing no field is generated. Coil this tubing with the appropriate spacing and a field is induced. This field measures 0.07 gauss. When the water is pumped through a coil surrounding a charged Vogel-cut® crystal the water becomes a permanent magnet while still remaining fluid. A magnetic moment is stored in the water that remains after the water stops spinning. This field can be erased with a bulk demagnetizer, just like magnetic recording tape.
    The primary discovery about the Vogel-cut® crystal was its resonance with the water molecule. It was found that if triple distilled water, with a minute amount of silica added, was passed through a coiled Pyrex glass tube surrounding an appropriately charged Vogel® crystal, the water would be altered at the molecular level. Normally, bulk water has an amorphous molecular pattern. The arrangement of molecules is random. After having been spun around a charged Vogel® crystal a variety of changes were be noted:

1.      A significant number of molecules become aligned into a systematic and repeating pattern (this is the definition of a crystal);

2.      The surface tension of the water decreased;

3.       Two new bands of light appear: one in the ultra-violet and the other in the
infra-red part of the light spectrum (indicating a stretching of the molecular bonding producing more energy);

4.      the pH of the water is altered as much as 3 points in either direction, acid or alkaline, and

5.      the freezing point of the water can drop to as low as -30 degrees C!

    How does this happen?

    As we know, water consists of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen atoms that are held together in a covalent bond. This is an actual physical force, much like gravity, or magnetism that holds these atoms together.

     Structured water can be thought of as water that has a greater degree of bonding between adjacent water molecules than does unstructured or bulk water. Structured water also forms a crystalline-like structure consisting of elongated chains of molecules that can be differentiated from the surrounding water molecules by qualities that are consistent with qualities found in liquid crystals such as increased birefringence and
a lowering of the freezing point. 

In the structured state water molecules have an angular, geometrical alignment. Quartz crystals also show this state but as a permanent solid state rather than a transitional semi-solid condition. If one compares the various angles of the quartz molecule and the water molecule, a possible basis for resonance between the two can be found.

Water Molecule

    The fundamental geometrical pattern of quartz and water is the tetrahedron. Water molecules, bound together, form tetrahedra in the form of tilted rings. This tilting happens because of the bonding angle that exists between any three water molecules. This angle is approximately 110 degrees. The normal flat hexagonal pattern formed by the bonding of tetrahedra has angles of 120 degrees. Water molecules with smaller angles, if they are to be formed into a hexagon, must have an uneven structure that is not in a flat plane, but instead is three-dimensional. This uneven structure is formed by what is called the angle of tilt. This angle can be between 20 degrees and 60 degrees, but the most common angle is 26 degrees. This is where the intermolecular bond is the strongest and it happens to be half of the interlattice angle of quartz. The second most common bonding angle for water is 54 degrees. This is also quite close to the interlattice angle of quartz.

    The interlattice angle of a crystal is related to the basal angle. The basal angle is ½ of the angle of the tip of the crystal. The interlattice angle of quartz is 90 degrees minus the basal angle, which is 38 degrees. Therefore the interlattice angle is 52 degrees. This is also the angle of the base of the Cheops pyramid.

    The bonding angle between molecules for water is about 1040. This is the angle that exists between the hydrogen atoms of each water molecule. It is virtually double that of the interlattice angle for quartz.

     It is possible that there is a compatible harmonic between water and quartz because of the similarity of these angles. This could allow a resonant transfer of energies that are stored within the crystal to a significant number of water molecules in any given sample.

      The structure of quartz can replicate itself in water because of this structure based resonant transfer.
The geometry produces frequency patterns and harmonics that can transfer into water. Very small amounts of energy are required for this transfer. The nature of resonant systems is such that a minimal input can achieve a maximal output.

       Resonance transfer occurs because the waveforms coming out of two or more vibrating substances having nearly the same waveform. In this case H2O and SiO2. The phase relationships of a resonating system can be defined in terms of the angular separation that exists between adjacent molecules. In water, the six molecules that form one hexagonal ring, when in resonance, will vibrate or broadcast its energy on a wave that has a particular frequency. The first molecule will vibrate influencing the second molecule; the second will affect the third, and so on. The time intervals between successive broadcasts will result in a phase delay, which can be converted into a phase angle. Successive waves coming from an oscillating system have successive phase angles that equal the angular separation that exists between members of the system. The phase angle within the vibrating ring of water molecules is 60 degrees (a ring or circle of 360 degrees divided by 6). If there were 7 molecules in the ring, the unevenness described previously, the phase angle would be 360/7 or 51.43 degrees. This is the principal phase angle of quartz. Most of the internal angles of water and quartz are either fractions or multiples of this angle.

    It is the interlattice resonance between the quartz microstate and the lyotropic mesophase that is the determining factor in the formation of the lyotropic mesophase in water. It is the reason that water can be structured by spinning it around a Vogel quartz crystal. It does not require large amounts of energy to accomplish this.

    The structuring of water around a Vogel-cut® crystal is dependent upon the program that is imprinted into the crystal. It is the program that brings about the abrupt change in state. A fundamental program that can bring about dramatic changes in water is that of unconditional Love.

      Why do these changes not happen when unfaceted quartz is used if indeed it is the interlattice resonance between quartz and water that is the transfer mechanism? I believe it is the cohering ability of the Vogel-cut crystal that allows this. We are dealing with very subtle energies and the form geometry of raw quartz is insufficient to generate a charge capable of affecting a charge transfer. It is the extra “boost” of the coherence of the Vogel crystal that allows the transfer. Although there may be an internal resonance between raw quartz and water, the external form of the crystal does not match this. There is a very low signal to noise ratio present due to the imbalance of the physical form of the crystal. In other words, with unfaceted quartz crystal there is much distortion and a lack of coherence in the signal or information that is being attempted to be transferred. This noise is removed in the faceting process of the Vogel crystal creating a high signal to noise ratio.

     In the structuring of water and wines the question is whether there is a field created in space when the water is spun around a crystal. To investigate this a GE magnetometer was attached to the inside of the structuring chamber and a series of readings were taken when the water was spun around a charged crystal. Within the chamber was housed a stainless steel coil, the tubing being ¾” in diameter and with seven right hand turns. The diameter of the coil was approximately six inches. The programmed Vogel-cut crystal was placed, with the firing tip (the more acute termination) downwards, in a specially designed holder so that it was in place within the coil. The chamber or enclosure for the coil and crystal was made from pine and finished with shellac. * The magnetometer was mounted on the side of the chamber with the probe placed in the space between the crystal and the coil. The temperature was kept at 70 degrees F with the chamber sealed.

     For each pass around the crystal, a sample was taken for an analysis with the Omega 5, a sample was taken for pH and conductivity measurements, and a sample was taken for infrared and ultra-violet spectrophotometry.

              The results of these experiments showed that:

1)     water spinning in a coil generates a weak, but measurable field (0.07 milli-gauss)

2)     quartz crystals can be charged with “information” and tuned to the fields generated by spinning water

3)     a critical charge is required for “information transfer” to occur (i.e. 1-4 passes around the crystal

4)     the number of passes can be modified by the programming of the crystals

5)     the program transfer is a resonance transfer with no loss in the original program after hundreds of experiments have been done with the system

6)     Water is made to be a permanent magnet. This field remains constant after the water stops spinning and can be removed by the application of a bulk demagnetizer.

     The basic changes noted in water after being spun around an appropriately charged Vogel-cut crystal were as follows:

1)     decreased surface tension

2)     The appearance of two new bands of light in the infrared and ultra-violet parts of the spectrum indicating a stretching of the molecular bonding in the water. This is indicative of more energy and new information in the water.

3)     the conductivity of the water increases

4)     the pH of the water can be altered up to 3 points, an increase in acidity or alkalinity

5)     the freezing point of the water could drop to as much as -30 degrees C

6)     A significant number of the molecules become aligned in micro-clusters or molecular chains; orderly, systematic, and repeating patterns. The water has become a liquid crystal system capable of storing information.

       According to Marcel:

       “This structuring is best assayed with a UV spectrophotometer where one finds an increase in UV absorption due to an increase in the water bonding from the water forming chains on itself. The magnetic moment of this structured water is increased by 0.07 gauss and there is also an increase in the pH and dielectric conductivity. Boiling of the water after structuring shows no change in the UV spectrum, so one can conclude that a permanent chemical change has taken place. When a drop of this structured silica water is dried on a slide and compared with untreated silica water, the photomicrographs show the formation of needle-like silica crystals in the structured water drop while the untreated water dried to an amorphous mass of silica gel. This shows that the process of structuring water produces a structuring or ordering effect on the solutes in solution”[9].

    The practical application of this includes agriculture, and the preservation of foods, as well as potential uses for healing. The energetic patterns of fertilizing agents can be stored in a crystal and then transferred into water. The water is then used to nourish the plants being grown. We have found in small-scale experimentation that plants treated in this way show significant growth increase when compared to untreated specimens.

    This is not simply a matter of creating water that has been “charged”, but of creating a fluidic medium capable of storing information, i.e. water with memory.

 

CRYSTALS AND WINE

    Substantial field experimentation was done to test the application of this process in the treatment of wines.
    At the Sycamore Creek Vineyards in California, a treatment unit with crystal was put in place between the wine holding tanks and the filtering unit. The crystal was charged with a program pertaining to the specific type of grape that was being used for the wine production. The overall intent was to bring the wine to its greatest potential in regard to taste, body, bouquet, and so on. The wine could be altered to whatever parameters were set by the programmer within the possibilities of the grapes being used. During the years of experimentation the “crystal treated” wine won several prizes and was lauded by both wine producers and critics alike.

 

Industrial Type Device
similar to processing unit used at Sycamore Creek Vineyards
from Dan Willis (Dreamhill Research)

 

    In 1988 I conducted an experiment at the Psychic Research Lab in San Jose, CA in which I was able to successfully transform a new 1988 Sauvignon Blanc to be the same as an award winning 1986 Sauvignon Blanc.

              This was the basic procedure:

              I took a sample of the 1986 wine and measured it on the Omega 5.

Once I had determined the energetics of the 1986 wine I transferred this information into an 8-sided double terminated Vogel-cut® crystal. The Omega 5 affects this transfer. I then took the crystal and placed it in our structuring unit. The next step was to take the 1988 Sauvignon Blanc and pour it through the unit so that it spun around the programmed crystal. The result was not only a 1988 wine that had the same taste, body, bouquet, and appearance of the award winning 1986, but also a 1988 wine that also measured out as being the same as the ‘86 according to the Omega.

My effort was only one of many times that this procedure was replicated with success.
How does this happen?

According to Marcel:

1)   A Vogel-cut® crystal tuned to water is programmed with information so that a  wine will be brought to completion with all of the reactions that are potential in its chemistry.

2)   The wine is then spun around the crystal 1 - 5 times (1x - 5x.)

3)    The wine is the measured with the Omega 5 after each spin.

4)     A decision is made as to which wine is best.

5)     Information is transferred to a master crystal and the wine is run in production.

         When the information becomes critical (at 4x), an abrupt change in the state of the wine takes place in much the manner as we have seen with the liquid crystals.

          I believe we are seeing in the wine a critical transfer of information which can then cause abrupt changes in the chemistry of the system.” (#6.1 Jan 1989)

“We have found that we can transfer a program from a laboratory unit to a larger industrial unit and then treat the wine in line with no loss of speed for the bottling operation. The filtering of the wine or the bottling apparatus did not dissipate the structuring that we achieved in the winery. We found that the structured wine is more resistant to rapid breakdown when exposed to the atmosphere and will hold its flavor for extended periods of time.”[10]

CRYSTALS AND JUICE

    The experiments with wine and water have also been replicated with fruit juices and milk as well. These juice experiments were done by Marcel Vogel and Dr. Brian O'Leary. In the case of the juice (orange) the results were quite intriguing.

     Seven cups of orange juice were used in this experiment. One was put aside as a control and the others contained juice that had been spun around a Vogel® crystal varying number of times (as with the wine described above). Sample one passed around the crystal once, sample two passed around the crystal twice, sample three, three times and so on up to seven. With the exception of the control cup each was then injected with mold. The following results were observed after one month:

1)           Control: completely moldy and slimy

2)           Cup 1:    very similar to control

3)           Cup 2:     slightly less mold than cup 1

4)           Cup 3:      even less mold than cup 2

5)           Cup 4:     somewhat dark but no growth of mold at all

6)           Cup 5:     somewhat dark and extensive mold growth

7)           Cup 6:     extensive mold growth

     The results discovered here are in keeping with the observations in the wine and water experiments.
The fourth pass around the crystal seemed to be the most effective in regard to information transfer and attaining the optimal results. Prior to the fourth pass there seemed to be insufficient information transferred to the wine, water, or juice, and after the fourth pass there appeared to be an excess of information. Once the optimal level of energetic transfer was achieved a rapid breakdown or degeneration occurred in the medium being used exceeding
even that of the control sample.

    The peak value, as mentioned, was usually at the fourth pass around the crystal can be measured with the Omega 5. This value can then be transferred into the crystal and only one pass around the crystal will be necessary.

    This situation of information overload is similar to one learning from books or classes. There comes a point when one is unable to absorb more information and still have effective comprehension of what was learned. Prior to this point one is still able to comprehend but may not be stimulated sufficiently to activate one’s full learning capacity. Good educators are well aware of this dynamic.

    What has possibly been created then is a situation in which various fluidic mediums could be said to have memory, a long time contention of homeopaths. Form is memory. This dynamic does not apply only to fluids. Gases could also easy be spun through such an apparatus. There are those who are currently experimenting in this way with rare earth gases. The results of these tests are still yet unknown.

     Interestingly, the most powerful process of the structuring of water came not from the method described above nor did it involve a crystal at all. Water that was exposed to the dynamics of a Catholic mass had higher absorption values in both the ultraviolet and infrared aspects of the light spectrum.

 

              ESSENCE CHEMISTRY

    It has been discovered that a crystal can store and transfer the energetic pattern of any chemical substance.
For example, in 1990 Marcel conducted an experiment in this regard and wrote the following:          

     “Essence chemistry may be defined as the radiation that each solid emits personifying the characteristic patterns of  its form and the chemical activity of the

     “To affect this type of chemistry, a CARRIER WAVE is required to transport these vibrations.

     “This carrier wave must have a coherency to it so as not to mingle with the radiation emitted from the target material but act as a differentiating transport vehicle. The quartz crystal cut in the dipyramidal shape provides such an instrument.

       “The radiation is etheric (the substance from which all matter evolves). The primary source is a living being  - preferably human. Breath control is the means of evoking this change.

       “The radiation penetrates through the crystal from the fingertip. The next stage is a vibratory oscillation, which builds a coherent field of energy. A sample placed in the point of focus of the radiation will transfer its radiational field to the primary field and the two will be carried out from the tip of the crystal.

      “The coherent field carries the vibration of the reference material at position “A” without interfering or blending to use a coherent pulsing field as a vehicle to transport the characteristic vibrational spectra form essence of a substance.

       “By this means a treatment can be affected in the body of a human being with none of the normal side effects.
The treatment can be implanted with a device of this type. The treatment can be removed with a similar device.

        “In October of 1982, in the home of a clinical psychologist, an experiment of this type was done. The substance used was a Quaalude tablet, which is a type of relaxant or sleeping pill.

        “The forms of treatment were done using first a four sided double terminated quartz crystal with a hole drilled in it for a specimen of the pill; and second, a four sided double terminated quartz crystal with no hole cut into it.

      “I began by placing a microscopic fragment of the Quaalude in the cavity of the crystal, which was made especially for this type of experiment. I took a fragment into my mouth to experience, at a subtle level, the vibration.

      “The top of the crystal was then wet with spittle over the hole and the index finger positioned on the spot. The right hand was used.

      “The entry site in the subject was the chest at a point between the shoulders and five inches down from the throat (the witness or thymus area). The crystal was held at about two inches from the body and held steady and slowly rotated until a vibration was felt in my left hand being used as a sensor.

      “At that moment I pulsed my breath and, in my mind’s eye, saw lights flashing. They were colored bluish green and were streaming out from the top.

       “My left hand was opposing the crystal over the subject’s right shoulder. When I saw these flashing lights,
a pulsation was experienced in my left hand. The subject’s body immediately relaxed, his eyes were closed and I asked him what he was experiencing. He responded that he was sleepy.

       “I then asked him if this was similar to what he would normally experience. He replied that it was, although weaker.

       “The normal healing crystal, without the inserted cavity, was then used and a treat was again given. This time I saw no lights but the subject experienced flashing lights in his mind. Now he showed deep euphoria, his eyes closed and he was asleep.

       “I sat down for five minutes next to him to observe. There was no movement in his body. The healing crystal was then cleaned, cleared, and applied to the same area, my breath withdrawn, pulsed and cleared.

       “Immediately the subject opened his eyes and before he went to bed, commented that the experience was the same as if he had taken a tablet orally.”[11]

Footnotes:

[1]             In quartz this systematic and repetitious patterning happens with tetrahedral shaped molecules resulting in a hexagonal or six sided crystal rather than cubic. Although the dynamics are the same the resulting crystal is much different. This is true for all of the primary crystal systems.

[2]             A solution exists when matter is dissolved into a liquid so that the dissolved substance (the solute) is dispersed into parts no larger than a molecule. If the parts are larger than a molecule it is called a mixture rather than a solution.

              The solute may be another liquid or a gas (e.g. the CO2 that is in soft drinks). When the solute is added to a liquid, the liquid will dissolve it until it can dissolve no more. This limit is called saturation.

              If a saturated solution is heated, more of the solute will dissolve. The solution has gone beyond its saturation point or has increased its saturation.

              As the saturated solution cools, sometimes it will throw off the excess solute and return to the point of saturation. Sometimes this does not happen and if it doesn’t do this it is said to be supersaturated. A supersaturated solution is not stable.

              If a “seed” is introduced or formed the supersaturated solution will throw off its excess solute onto the surface of the seed. It will do this only when the seed is the substance with which it is supersaturated. A solution of Si02 will crystallize out only onto a seed of Si02.

[3]         “A standing or stationary wave is a wave in which the profile of the wave does not move through the medium but remains stationary. This is in contrast to a traveling or progressive) wave, in which the profile moves through the medium at the speed of the wave. A stationary wave results when a traveling wave is reflected back along its own path. In a stationary wave there are points at which the displacement is zero; these are called nodes. Points of maximum displacement are called antinodes. The distance between a node and its neighboring antinode is one quarter of a wavelength. In a stationary wave all the points along the wave have different amplitudes and the points between successive nodes are in phase; in a traveling wave every point vibrates with the same amplitude and the phase of vibration changes for different points along its path.”   The Concise Science Dictionary; Third Edition; oxford University Press; 1996

      An example of a standing wave is when a string on a musical  instrument is plucked. The string vibrates up and down creating nodal points at various parts of the string. This is the same dynamic that creates the nodal points on an oscillating crystal.
