Some of it is from
written information that he passed on to me. Some of it is from conversations

what notes I could at
these times. The remainder is from research I have done
my own in an attempt to understand what Marcel had told me. I am not a chemist
or a scientist
so I have had to read about water chemistry in order to
understand the processes of structuring water.

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. The water was poured through a funnel into the coiled tubing and moved
through the coil by the pull
of gravity. No pump was used.
Normally, bulk water has an amorphous molecular pattern that is he arrangement
of molecules is random.
After having been spun around a charged Vogel
crystal, a variety of changes were noted:
significant number of molecules become aligned into a systematic and repeating
pattern (this is the definition of a crystal);
surface tension of the water decreased;
bands of light appear: one in the ultra-violet and the other in the infra-red
part of the light
spectrum (indicating a strengthening of the molecular bonding
producing more energy)
the pH of
the water is altered as much as 3 points in either direction, acid or alkaline;
freezing point of the water can drop to as low as -30 degrees C!
How does this happen?
It is important first to look at the nature of water and take a simplified and
easy journey through the
world of water chemistry.
BASIC WATER CHEMISTRY
An atom consists of a nucleus made up of positively charged protons and neutral
or non-charged neutrons.
Orbiting around the nucleus like planets are negatively
charged electrons. There can be many
shells or orbits around the nucleus in
which electrons can travel. The first shell can have only
two electrons. Shells
two and three can have up to eight electrons each and the fourth shell can
up to eighteen.
For our purposes here this is all we need consider.
When an electron shell is full it is unable to take on any more electrons.
it has less than its complement it then has space to accept more usually from
up to the maximum of electrons it
can maintain in its outermost shell as described above.
As we know, water (H20) consists of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen
The oxygen atom has
eight protons (+charge), eight neutrons (no charge) in its nucleus,
electrons (-charge) in two
orbital shells. The arrangement of the electrons is two in
the first shell and
six in the second shell, making a
total of eight. As the second shell is not full,
the oxygen atom has the ability
to manage two more electrons
from another atom.
Fortunately, a couple of hydrogen atoms are just perfect for the job. A hydrogen
atom consists of a
nucleus with one proton and one electron orbiting in the first shell. The
electrons of two hydrogen atoms
are just what the oxygen atom needs to feel
complete. These three atoms come together and attach through
called a covalent bond. This type of bond occurs when the outer electrons of one
atom are shared
with outer electrons of another. The shared electrons are called
“valence” electrons hence, “covalent.
covalent bond is very strong and the force that holds the atoms together is a
physical force, much
like gravity, or magnetism. It is sometimes called a weak nuclear force.
single water molecule is written H20 and can be drawn as a model like
basic configuration of a water molecule is a tetrahedron.
Within the water molecule the bonding is a strong covalent bond.
Between water molecules there is a weaker ionic bond.
Ionic bonds are
formed when atoms that have lost or gained an electron attach to each
other. An ionic bond is electrically charged and forms in water when the oxygen
atom of one
water molecule connects itself to the hydrogen atom of an adjacent
This particular kind of ionic bonding is called a hydrogen bond.

means that the distance between the oxygen atoms of two adjacent water molecules
2.717angstrom units. This is a simple matter of adding .957 and 1.76. The distance
between two oxygen
atoms of adjacent water molecules is called the 0 – 0
distance (oxygen to oxygen).
These measurements can change. When water is cooled the distance from oxygen to
atoms between water molecules becomes smaller. When water is heated this
distance gets bigger up to
a maximum of about 2.95-angstrom units at 200 degrees
Celsius. Water boils at 100 degrees C.
Hydrogen bonds (the connection of the hydrogen atom of one water molecule to the
an adjacent water molecule) can be permanent as in the covalent bond
a water molecule.
also be temporary as in the ionic bond between water molecules. The ionic
bond between water molecules is
always breaking apart and reconnecting and
breaking apart and reconnecting…
Water is always moving internally. It is a “sea” of random or amorphous
molecules coming together and
then going apart. It’s as if
the molecules are always saying, “Hello, I must be going” to each other.
When the temperature of water is lowered or where the water molecules contact
air (as in the surface
of a lake or the surface of the water in your drinking glass) there is increased
or strengthened hydrogen
bonding as already mentioned. The internal movement in the water will slow down.

are going on, but we’ll get to those later.

ion (H+) and a negatively charged hydroxyl ion (OH-). This can be accomplished
with electromagnetic energy in the form of
ultra-violet light or static

neutral charge is formed.
the two ions remain separate, the water takes on an electrical charge or
potential. Ionized water
is more alive and has the ability to neutralize impurities. The hydroxyl ion
will react with acids to neutralize
them and the hydrogen ion reacts with alkalines to neutralize them. When two
hydroxyl ions come together hydrogen peroxide is formed (H202).
The extra oxygen atom will cause a reaction with hydrocarbons and
This means that hydrogen peroxide will burn off excess fats and
hydrocarbons in the cells.
For this reason some people drink heavily diluted hydrogen peroxide (usually a
one or two per cent solution)
in an attempt to rid their body of unwanted accumulates. The reaction of hydroxyl
and hydrogen ions
described above could also play a role in sewage and water treatment by the
neutralization of acid and
alkaline elements of the waste. If these ions could become bonded as they are in
structured water, they
would exist for longer periods of time and be able to create beneficial
reactions in polluted materials.
Normally these bonds exist for such a short period of time that there effect is
mentioned, UV light can ionize water. This is why sunlight can reduce or
eliminate the bacteria population in water.
It is the increased oxygen content
in the water that kills the
bacteria. Ionized water tends
to be more electrically active than non-ionized water. Aeration can also add
oxygen to water but it is
relatively inefficient. If, however, aeration and a structuring process were
somewhat significant amounts of oxygen could be added to water with
very beneficial results.
Structured water can be thought of as water that has a greater degree of bonding
water molecules than does unstructured or bulk water. This happens when water

maintains its liquid state.
It is ionized and also forms

preliminary way, as has ionization.
Chain formation happens when the water
molecules form into chains of crystalline-like structures.

Structured water is a lyotropic mesophase. What does this mean? “Lyo” means “in
“meso” means, “middle”. A lyotropic mesophase is, therefore, a mid
way or middle phase between a
liquid and a
solid. It is neither one nor the other. A liquid crystal is a formation that is
a solid and a liquid. The chain formations in
structured water are liquid crystals that are surrounded by a

colder than the
surrounding unstructured water. Just below the level where
this is happening the
water is warmer because
there are no crystalline molecular chains to be losing heat.

water is structured it becomes colder due to the

The speed at which this process occurs is called “bond
formation time” and it can be lengthened
by the presence of various types of molecules such as silicon. Just the addition
of 0.01% of silica to water
can make dramatic changes. It will increase the bond formation time (BFT) from

highly structured. Possibly, if one
drank structured water the body would not have to spend so much energy to
structure the water itself.
STRUCTURED WATER AS A MICROPHASE
term “microphase” refers to the angular, geometrical alignments that water
molecules have when
they become structured. Structured water has a microphase (the structure)
and a mesophase, (the condition
of the structure). The term microstate is interchangeable with microphase.
crystal, for example, has a microstate but no mesophase. Quartz is a solid
crystal, not a meso
or middle phase between a liquid and a solid.
basic geometrical pattern for water (and quartz) is the tetrahedron. Four water
molecules will form the points of the tetrahedron (fig. ).
The space in the center of the tetrahedron can remain empty, it can be filled by
another water molecule,
or it can be occupied by any of a number of other
molecules that might be in the water such as iron, silica,
sodium chloride and so on.
When they bond together, the water molecules form tetrahedrons moving in one
direction (relative to
the group) and also another type of alignment moving in another direction. The
other type of alignment is
called a tilted hexagonal ring. The tilting happens
because when any three water molecules come together,
instead of forming the
normal 120o angle, found in a hexagon, they will form a bonding angle

chains) are directly

of one ring is directly
the high point of the ring above or below it. The result is that there is a

The formation of structured water is best described by the open packed
arrangement mentioned above.
Snowflakes, for example, demonstrate a perfect 60o
hexagonal ring. Each 60o ring in the snowflake is caused
by a series of 60o rings rotating as the close-packed ring is
transformed into an open-packed ring.
The rotation through 60o happens very suddenly without the molecules
stopping at any smaller angle.
This is typical in the formation of liquid
structured state water molecules have an angular, geometrical alignment. Quartz
have this but as a permanent solid state. 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.
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 109.5o.
The normal flat hexagonal

tetrahedra has angles of 120o.

formed by what
is called the angle of

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 54o.
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 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 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
The interlattice bonding angle of 52o in quartz is related to the
of the bonds in water. The bonding angle between molecules for water is
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
It is possible that there is a compatible harmonic between water and quartz
because of the
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
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

CHANGES IN WATER
can be in the form of a solid, liquid, or gas. As water cools the distance
becomes smaller. This distance is the O – O distance described earlier.
The O –
O distance is the distance between the two oxygen atoms of adjacent water
The minimum O – O distance is reached at 4oC.
At 0oC the distance becomes a little larger. Water attains greatest
density and minimum O – O distance at
4o C. As it freeze the O – O distance increases, therefore it also
becomes less dense. This is why ice floats.
The ice is less dense than the water on which it is forming. As the water
freezes the energy stored in the
atomic structures is converted into a force field, a weak nuclear force.
field holds atoms together as they form molecules crystalline structures – ice!
physics there is a formula that Energy = Force X Distance. This means that the
conversion of energy
to force requires moving that force through space (distance). When water
molecules move apart as
temperature is decreased from 4oC to 0oC the distance the
molecules move is related to the force that is
holding them together as ice or water. This dynamic should be true for all
crystals whether liquid or solid.
All crystals should expand slightly as they form out of the liquid state.
Although seemingly contradictory to
the idea that crystalline microstates are more compact than the surrounding
liquid, crystals of a particular
substance should be less dense than the
non-crystalline solution from which they emerge. This is because

between adjacent molecules

from each other. This causes a crystalline

mesophase of organic molecules.
It is the degree of crystallization in the various systems in the body that make
them more or less solid.
Although structured water is formed as the temperature decreases, it can also
happen without a
lowering of temperature. For example it happens in lakes, ponds, and streams when
oxygen is added at the surface of the water.
Structuring can also happen through
electrical ionization as mentioned earlier.

through a Pyrex glass coil around a tuned quartz crystal. Bonds between water
molecules can be made
stronger. It is a matter of being able to store more energy in the interlattice

distance decreases to
2.5-angstrom units with a resulting bending angle of 0o, the water
becomes ionized creating a positively
charged hydromium ion and one negatively charged hydroxyl ion. This is because
the bonding is so strong
that the adjacent water molecules are as one. The hydromium will have no
electron while the hydroxyl has an extra electron.
The proton of the hydrogen
ion attaches itself to another water molecule to find an electron to
fill its orbital shell. The hydroxyl ion will remain with the hydronium ion so
that their total charge will be zero.
As the O – O distance continues to decrease larger hydronium ions groups form.

continues and layered rings or clusters of water molecules continue forming.
Water polymers are groups of adjacent water molecules bonded together into
patterns. Any three consecutive molecules in a hexagonal ring have an angle of
109.5o between them.
As the number of consecutive chained molecules
increase this angle will increase.
It is generally thought that there are five different types of polymers.

well as these types of polymers, there are orders of polymers as well. They are
open and cyclic.
Open polymers are groups of molecules not strongly
bonded to adjacent groups of molecules.
Cyclic polymers are more strongly bonded
to adjacent groups of the same kind and these groups repeat themselves.
no repetition in the open polymer. Cyclic polymers are more stable than open
and water naturally wants to form into chained structures that are cyclic.
the most significant things that happen to water as it becomes structured is
that its “vibrational
mode” changes. A vibrational mode is the coordinated patterns in direction of
motion that the atomic
nuclei have as they vibrate.

are three types of vibrational modes:
in this mode the hydrogen atoms move away from and back to the oxygen atoms.
movement of all the hydrogen atoms is synchronous or in phase.
in this mode the hydrogen atoms vibration is out of phase with each other and
to cancel each other out.
in this mode the vibration of the hydrogen atoms is random and chaotic
asymmetric vibrations happen in adjacent water molecules, the internal energy
moves around and between each hexagonal ring or cluster.
The result is that the
energy is broadcast throughout the sample of
water and tends to make all the
molecules have the same energy and bonding
levels. Because of this the amorphous condition of the
water is reduced.
When symmetric vibrations happen, the internal energy of individual hydrogen
is concentrated and they increase to a high energy level producing
process of proton migration (or translocation) happens when extra protons (from
ionized water molecules) move back onto the water molecules
throughout their structures.
This helps to bond the molecules together and is a
way to hold large molecules or chains of
water the extra hydrogen atom of the hydronium ions provides the extra proton.
The extra protons
move from one water molecule in the chain to another as if weaving an invisible
energetic thread around
and through the chain. The migrating protons tend to
move through the spaces in the structured water
chains. Minerals that are often
found in these vacancies can be assisted in their bonding by the protons
long strings of protons and ionized minerals. The mineral salts in water tend to
have long bond formations.
The time it takes for protons to move through a single water chain is fairly
long and this means that
they have a low frequency motion. Low frequency fields
enhance the structuring of water.

exists between members of the system. The phase angle within the
of water molecules is

divided by 6). If there were 7 molecules in

is the principal phase angle of quartz.
Most of the internal angles of water and
quartz are either fractions or multiples of this.
How does the seven-molecule ring arise?
As energy is stored in the hexagonal rings, the molecules are drawn closer
of rings also become closer. Both of these actions increase stress on the ring
and at a critical
point the ring is broken apart by the stress into a seven-member ring.
This seven-member ring never actually forms. Instead, its bonding energy is held
by a series of
vibrations that have phase relationships. They are harmonics of 26o
(i.e.52o & 104o). When this seven
member or septimer bond forms it does so at an angle of 52o to the
plane of the original hexagonal ring.
It is the bonding energy of a seventh member or molecule that is present. The
seventh ring is a virtual ring
and it can function as a kind of dimensional portal.
The shape of the hexagonal patterns of the water molecule can be altered by its
and so forth in the crystalline bonding that it can form.
The hexagonal rings that make water and quartz move so that they are over one
another and off-center.
This is a true crystalline state. As this state arises,
a luminescence happens and the crystal’s internal
is changed to a specific frequency of light and transmitted away for the
lyotropic mesophase of water there is a change from one vibrational mode to
from asymmetric (unstructured water) to symmetric (structured water).
This change allows the water

The symmetrical vibration keeps
the energy of the water molecule contained within its own interior,
where it can
be modulated upwards or added to itself in a harmonic pattern. At a critical
the energy breaks the ring of hexagonal molecules and the septimer polymer of
structured water molecules
THE LUMINESCENCE OF STRUCTURED WATER
Luminescence is the emission of light from a substance for any reason other than
an increase in temperature.
Atoms emit light (photons) when its electrons are
excited. This excitation can happen for any number
of reasons other than the
application of heat. A photon could cause this excitation in which case the
light would be called photoluminescence. If the exciting source is a
chemical reaction the process is
called chemi-luminescence; if an
electron initiates the process it is called electro-luminescence.

formed it emits
very specific frequencies
that are visible. This luminescence
occurs at the instant of the transition from a
liquid to a liquid crystal
The LC will change from the lyotropic mesophase and then back to the
or purely liquid condition. The time involved in these changes has definite
rates and is related to the bond formation times
as described previously.

Billions of other frequencies are modulated onto these billions of frequencies

As trillions of frequencies vibrate throughout the body they will
tend to stand still within the structure of the molecule.
This is a standing wave.
Certain frequencies with the standing waves will have points of maximum

Spirit/body connection lies. The proton spin rates and alignments could be a
result of electron spin
rates and changes in the electrons could alter the
nature of the nucleus and its atom. The proton has a
spin orientation close to
that of the interlattice angle of quartz. Protons, when influenced by magnetic
fields tilt to an angle of
51o and begin to rotate. The rates of rotation are proportional to
the strength of
the magnetic field. 51o is the phase angle produced
when a 360o circular chain is divided by 7.

Electron spin rates can also be altered by consciousness.
STRUCTURING OF WATER WITH CRYSTALS
It is the interlattice resonance between the quartz microstate and water 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-cut 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
in the water.
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
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.

“boost” of the coherence of the
Vogel crystal that allows the transfer. Although
there may be an internal resonance between raw quartz
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
crystal there is much
distortion and a lack of coherence in the signal or information that is being
to be transferred. This noise is removed in the faceting process of
the Vogel® crystal, creating a high signal
to noise ratio.
structuring of water the question is whether there is a field created in space
when the water
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
crystal and the coil. The temperature was kept at 70o F with the
For each pass around the crystal, a sample was taken for an analysis with the

The basic changes noted in water after being spun around an appropriately

Testing done with a UV spectrophotometer indicated that there is an increased
ultra violet absorption at the 200 nm wavelength. Marcel thought that
this greater absorption meant that
the UV lightwas going into the hydrogen bonding which would mean an increase in this bonding
tests showed that there was between a 5 and 10% increase in the levels of UV
absorption in approximately
85% of the cases.
Measurements were also taken at the Infra Red portion of the light spectrum.
over 100 samples of structured water measurements were taken at between 400cm-1
and 4000 cm-1.
The measurement of cm-1
refers to the number of waves per centimeter.
Control samples were first measured for the percentage of energy absorbed and
then samples of
structured water were then also tested.

temperatures was reproduced.
This means that the water took on “ice like”
conditions without being subjected to freezing temperatures.
The movement of the
water around the crystal seems to induce a structured water microstate that can
lower temperature in the water.
A significant phase shift happened at the 2300cm-1 and 2800cm-1
level where normally there is a
minimal amount of IR absorption. What happened, however, was that the phase
shifting at this frequency
range was the same as what happens at the maximum IR absorption.
What is important here are that the effects of phase shifting in the infrared
portion of the spectrum
and the increase in the ultraviolet energy is the
measurable result of the ionization that happens when
the water is structured as
well as the formation of molecular chains. The structured water is rich in

These same results can be seen in water that has:

introduced to the crystal,
such as a homeopathic remedy, the resulting
structured water should contain the vibration of the
specific remedy introduced.
This might have applications in the transfer of the frequency pattern of
allopathic remedies to the water.

Refer to Marcel Vogel’s article “Essence Chemistry” for a more detailed
account of a similar process that did not involve water.
Substantial field experimentation was done to test the application of this
in the treatment of
wines. At the Sycamore Creek Vineyards in California, a treatment unit with

the wine holding tanks and the filtering unit. The crystal was charged

both wine producers and critics alike.

1) A Vogel-cut crystal tuned to water is programmed with information so
that a wine will be

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

The experiments with wine and water have also been replicated with fruit juices
and milk as well.
In the case of the juice (orange) the results were quite

When doing the work of spinning water around a specially tuned quartz

factors that have been found to be important. These

materials used in the coil apparatus must be of the optimal available. Pyrex
glass or quartz glass has
been found to be optimal, as has teakwood for the

In the initial experiments pine was used, but subsequent research has shown teak
to be superior.
This is probably because teak has high silica content.

once performed spinning of water around a crystal but had the crystal with the
upwards. He was standing about one meter from the coil, which at that time was
not housed in any kind of
box or covering. Watching the water spin around the crystal he was hit with
burst of energy coming from
the apparatus. His eyes were burned and body physically pushed back
wall several feet away.
The following day his eyes were “sealed” shut with yellow pus
as if he had been
exposed to radiation. Four
other people witnessed this phenomenon.
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.
Marcel referred to this as “Spirit Water”.
It was mentioned above that water that had its temperature lowered,
was spun around an appropriately treated Vogel crystal,
water that was exposed
to the process of chanting and meditation and
that was treated by a healer showed the same changes. It must be
understood that in this
the crystal is essentially a transducer and memory storage instrument
for the energies of
thought or intent. These are the same principles operating
through the laying on of hands by a healer
and the ritual of chanting and
What we are seeing then is that water demonstrates the same outcome

does when its temperature is lowered. This is the power of

through a mechanical lowering of temperature can also be
achieved through the power of thought and
intent. It should also be noted that
in using thought and intent these energies are also
transferred to the water. It is not simply that the water becomes physically

In radionics the creation of vibrational remedies is often called a simulation.
This is a remedy that is
not the actual physical substance but a vibrational equivalent that has
effect as the substance it is simulating. We see this effect in water when it is
structured by being
spun around an appropriately prepared Vogel crystal.
Whatever information is stored in the crystal is
transferred to the water. This
process has been described above as well as elsewhere in the section
Water can be an alchemical substance and although we are surrounded by it on

accepted or not,
can be the catalyst for thought, discussion, and action.
