"Know, O man, that Light is thine heritage.
Know that darkness is only a veil.
Sealed in thine heart is brightness eternal,
waiting the moment of freedom to conquer,
waiting to rend the veil of the night."

Properties of the 4 Gate 40 Facet Master Cut Vogel Wand
The Quadrilateral 4 Gate 40 Sided Vogel Wand resonates with the energy of the Tetrad, which symbolizes the four directions of the compass, and is figured by The Emperor, Tarot Trump #4, symbolizing the power of the Christ Light. The Quadrilateral 40 Sided Vogel Wand is an ideal wand for healing, as it receives the energy of Source and amplifes and modulates that energy into the frequencies of the Christed Consciousness.
This extremely rare, large Smoky Quartz Quadrilateral 4 Gate 40 sided Master Cut Vogel Healing Wand from our special collection is extraordinary in every way. This amazing professional lightworker's tool measures 5.2 inches long and weighs 8.35 ounces, a little more than 1/2 of a pound.
This gorgeous healing tool was cut from natural, untreated Brazilian Smoky Quartz, and contains translucent rippling sheets of wispy cloud-like inclusions in the shaft of the wand, with a smattering of mica-like inclusions, cloudy wisps, and frosty inclusions in the female termination tip. None of these inclusions reach the surface of this energetically powerful Vogel wand.
Most Master Cut Vogel wands have some inclusions, because it is very difficult in today's market to find a large enough piece of water clear quartz crystal to cut into a Master Cut Vogel wand. In our experience, inclusions that do not reach the surface of the wand can add to the energetic power and beauty of the crystal, and actually enhance its value.
This unique wand displays quadrilateral symmetry, with 4 convex ridged facets along the shaft creating four major faces, and 40 total flat facets. The female termination tip contains 4 major faces with 40 facets altogether.
From the picture above you can see that the four major "gates" running the length of the shaft are actually NOT flat, but rather convex, with scalloped points at the four corners of the shaft, where it meets the female termination tip, showcasing the extraordinary virtuosity of the crystal cutter.
As you can clearly see in the picture of the female termination tip on this page, this beautiful energetically powerful wand was created to manifest one of the deepest secrets of sacred geometry: the squaring of the circle.
"Pi" is the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle, an irrational number which is constant. This mathematical truth has been known for so long that it is quite untraceable in origin, and has led to thousands of years of efforts to approximate the "squaring of the circle" with ruler and compass.
In 1880 Carl Louis Ferdinand von Lindemann proved that "pi" was "transcendental". This means that "pi" is not the root of any polynomial equation with rational coefficients. The "transcendentality" of "pi" finally proves that there is no ruler and compass construction to square the circle.
Nevertheless very close approximations of the squaring of the circle are possible via a variety of methodologies, and this amazing Vogel healing wand clearly demonstrates this fact.
In sacred geometry, the circle symbolizes unity, the single point at its center representing the Source of creation. The two-dimensional circle is but a symbol for the three-dimensional cone, which is itself a symbol of the mountaintop, where Deity dwells. The square symbolizes the manifest reality of four-dimensional creation, the time-space continuum.
Thus the sacred geometry of this Quadrilateral Vogel wand is designed to channel the Energy of Highest Source into the material world and ground that energy in physical bodies, which makes this wand ideal for healing individuals, groups, and the Earth itself.
This Quadrilateral 4 Gate 40 Sided Vogel Wand is a new design Vogel wand from Brazilian Master Crystal Cutter and Energy Healer Ray Pinto, whose brother studied with IBM scientist and crystal healer Marcel Vogel. Ray is internationally known for the quality of his workmanship and the attention to detail and to the energetics of the crystals he cuts.
The Quadrilateral 4 Gate 40 Sided Vogel Wand resonates with the energy of the Tetrad, symbol of material creation, the four directions of the compass, and of the cube, the first three dimensional figure among geometrical figures, which progress from the Zero, to the point, then the line, then the triangle, and finally to the cube or Tetrahedron.
The Tetrahedron is the basic building block of both organic and inorganic chemistry, and is a crucial component of Silicon Dioxide (SiO₂), which comprises both sand and quartz crystals.
In quartz molecular latticeworks, a single Silicon molecule appears at the center of a tetrahedron with oxygen atoms at all four corners. Diamonds are also tetrahedral lattice structures composed of carbon atoms.
In the Tarot deck, the repository of much of the Esoteric Christian and Qabalistic Wisdom School Teachings of the West, the Tetrad is symbolized by Trump #4, which is The Emperor. The Emperor is designated by the Hebrew letter "HEH", the meaning is "Window", and the Esoteric Title of the Trump is "Sun of the Morning, Chief of the Almighty".
The energy of The Emperor is the Manifestation of Spirit under the Aegis of the Higher Mind, Higher Purpose and Higher Will. Thus the Quadrilateral 88 Sided Vogel Wand is a true Window of Light, and is quintessentially a Manifestation Wand designed for healing. However, as it is attuned to the energy of the Spirit of Manifestation, this Emperor's Wand is also as a tool for manifesting our own personal reality according to Higher Purpose, through Higher Mind, in accordance with Higher Will.
The Emperor is shown with the Lamb of God at his feet, because the energy signature of the Emperor is identical to the healing energy of Christ Consciousness, the manifestation of the Love and Light that constitute the Inner Being of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Thus the Quadrilateral 40 Sided Vogel Wand is an ideal wand for healing, as it receives the energy of Source and amplifes and modulates that energy into the frequencies of the Christed Consciousness.
This gorgeous Vogel wand is a professional Lightworker's tool, a technologically advanced precision instrument for receiving, amplifying and transmitting Universal Life Force Energy, which was created with modern technology utilizing the Ancient Wisdom Teachings of Sacred Geometry as taught in the Egyptian and Greek Mystery Schools.

Properties of the Vogel Healing Wand
Marcel Vogel worked for IBM for 27 years doing research and development. He developed the magnetic coating for IBM's hard disc drive, which acts as the storage unit for a computer's memory. Vogel also created the first liquid crystal displays, or LCDs.
When learning about the healing powers of crystals, Vogel discovered that when he pointed a crystal at another person, the crystal would amplify the person's thoughts and emotions. Then Vogel discovered that he could transmit his own thoughts and emotions to another person using quartz crystals. Vogel experimented further and his experiments with crystals eventually led to putting individuals into an altered state of consciousness. The next step was for Vogel to utilize the quartz crystals for therapeutic purposes.Energy and crystal healers prize Vogel cut quartz crystals to this day.
Energy and crystal healers prize Vogel cut quartz crystals to this day. The art of cutting crystals for use in healing requires extensive knowledge of the high art of jewel-cutting, an intuitive feel for the subtle energies involved, and an awareness of the needs of the energy healer who will be using the wand.
Faceted crystal wands claiming to be Vogel type crystals vary widely in quality, craftsmanship, and price.
The most important thing to remember in working with faceted crystals for healing is that the purpose of the faceting should be to amplify and transmit an increasingly coherent stream of energy to a subject.
Some hexagonal quartz crystal wands occur naturally with six more or less equilateral sides and more or less equal triangular termination facets. Energy healers discovered that these six sided wands amplifed the energy being transmitted by the wand when the termination facets on the female end created a more obtuse angle and when the termination facets on the male end created a more acute angle.
In a naturally formed quartz crystal of somewhat irregular shape and symmetry, the energy within the crystal tends to move through the crystal in a less directed way than the Vogel style cuts. But when a crystal had a very definite symmetry, especially the hexagonal symmetry, then the energy gathers in the larger, receptive end of the crystal, and if directed by a knowledgeable human hand, travels in a series of tighter and tighter concentric circles around the interior of the crystal, and down into the tip of the male end of the crystal, where it would be emitted as a much more coherent stream of energy.
Energy healers also discovered that when the sharp male tip of the healing wand is congruent with the C-axis of the crystal, exactly centered within the circle formed when you look head-on at the male end of the crystal, this made the energetic flow stronger and more coherent.
When the sharp tip on the female end of the crystal, where the six termination facets meet, is congruent with the C-axis of the crystal, exactly centered within the circle formed when you look head-on at the female end of the crystal, this made the energetic flow stronger and more coherent.
Total symmetry created the crystal healer's version of the laser beam.
Vogel found that he best six-sided natural healing wands with well-centered male and female terminations, had a female termination that approximated an angle of 51 degrees, 51 minutes and 51 seconds. Vogel recognized that this exact angle was equal to the angle of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Marcel Vogel's healing wands are refined artistic versions of natural healing wands. Good Vogel wands should have precisely equal facets. The male and female terminations should be sharp, and the male should be more acute than the female. The female termination should be 51 degrees, 51 minutes and 51 seconds.
The male and female termination tips should be exactly centered in the circle you cee when you look head-on at the crystal from either end.
As you can see from this brief, simplified description of the intricacies of Marcel Vogel's designs, it is extremely difficult to create Vogel wands.
According to Vogel's specifications, the large, female end of this Master Cut 88 sided Vogel Wand is cut precisely to the interior angle of 51 degrees, 51 minutes and 51 seconds, the same angle as the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Universal Life Force Energy (also called prana or chi) enters the female end of the wand, spirals down the body of the wand, and is amplifed every time it encounters a facet. The super-charged energy stream coalesces at the male end of the wand, and is emitted as a highly coherent laser-like beam for use in meditation, vibrational healing and subtle communications.
The 4 Gate 40 faceted Vogel style healing wand is one of the most rare & precious healing wand yet produced according to Marcel Vogel's specifications. From discussions with very experienced crystal energy healers and from personal experience, it is clear that the "4 Gate-40" is an extremely powerful tool for distance Reiki, meditations involving distance healing of all kinds, and for meditations centered on connecting to the Christ consciousness grid surrounding the Earth, linking up with groups of Lightworkers, and for transmitting healing energy to large groups of people or geographical areas.
The larger the number of facets, the more powerful the energy stream, the more effectively the crystal can receive, amplify and transmit Universal Life Force Energy. Very few cutters anywhere in the world have the ability to cut a Quadrilateral 40 faceted Vogel wand, and we are pleased to offer this professional light instrument to our online community.
The energy of this amazing Vogel wand is that of clear water rushing down a mountain stream, refreshing and washing away all blocks, sorrows & detrimental energies.
From personal experience, I have found that this Smoky 4 Gate 40 sided Vogel Wand is one of the most powerful crystal I have ever used to extract unwanted, old energy and energy blockages from a client's body and aura. I have had patients who were in pain and suffering, who literally were crying on the treatment table when a session began, turn from sadness to joy. I have seen them begin to smile and laugh within a few moments after removing energy blockages from them using the 88 sided Vogel Wand.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Smoky Quartz
Mineralogists say there may be more than one cause for the gray to brown to black color range of this very popular form of quartz crystal, ranging from sodium to other minerals in the crystal. According to Melody ("Love is in the Earth"), smoky quartz is produced by the presence of sodium in clear crystal, facilitating the regulatation of fluids in the body, acting much like a mineral supplement bringing mineral equilibrium.
Other mineralogists suggest other theories concerning the dark pigment in smoky quartz, including the presence of trivalent titanium or the presence of carbon compounds.
Some mineralogists suggest that the characteristic dark brown to black color of smoky quartz is produced when clear quartz is exposed to natural radiation emanating from radioactive rocks in the same geological formation where the quartz crystals form and grow. The current scientific hypothesis is that when clear quartz is exposed to radiation, the radiation alters the oxidation states of mineral impurities found within the quartz structure, resulting in smoky quartz.
“The frequent occurrence of smoky quartz in association with rare earth and radioactive minerals is very significant, for later it will be indicated that smoky quartz may have been colored through the action of radioactive elements,” says the University of Michigan’s Edward F. Holden, in a 1925 article in The American Mineralogist. “In Ontario smoky quartz is a constant associate of radioactive minerals, and the same association is frequent in Madagascar. Enormous smoky quartz crystals occur in the well known radioactive pegmatite of Baringer Hill, Texas.”
“The evidence given thus far is in agreement with the theory that smoky quartz owes its color to atoms of silicon, formed by the disintegration of silica, through the action of radium radiations,” Holden continues. “The mechanism of the formation of the free silicon may perhaps be pictured in this way: The radiations may remove the four outer electrons from a silicon atom, which would then be equally shared by the two associated oxygen atoms. As a result, two free oxygen atoms and a free silicon atom would be formed. They could take no part in the crystal structure since their attractive force for other atoms would have been destroyed. Hence, they should act as small inclusions, the silicon atoms producing the light-scattering and the color so characteristic of smoky quartz. We would expect the silicon atoms to be most effective in scattering light because of their greater atomic weight, and the possibility of the escape of the oxygen atoms.”
From this scientific analysis it is clear that smoky quartz, although quite likely formed through the action of radioactive elements, is not radioactive itself, and this perfectly natural process is not detrimental to the crystals or to human beings utilizing these crystals for ornamentation, in meditation, for crystal healing, or for any other purpose.
Smoky quartz has been a favorite healing stone of shamanistic practitioners around the world for thousands of years.
According to modern day energy healers, smoky quartz works slowly and thoroughly to relieve imbalances in the physical and etheric bodies, with special emphasis on the solar plexus and its associated chakra, the third or Manipura chakra associated with personal power and vital energy. And it works on the hands and feet. Smoky quartz can, over time, help to balance the flow of vital energy throughout the physical and etheric bodies, and aids in the development of a healthy, fully functioning chakra system.
It is an aid in gently releasing blockages caused by negative energy patterns in the emotional body. Smoky quartz has been used as an aid in meditation, for energy healing, and to create a protective barrier of energy around the holder, being grounding and clearing the mind.
Our experience in working with smoky quartz both for ourselves in meditation and self treatment & with clients on the Reiki table is one of supreme protection, slow and deep healing, and gentle awakening of spirit. Smoky quartz guards our house, is a companion to the sick and is a humble & deep gift from the Mother.
This Master Cut Quadrilateral 4 Gate 40 Facet Smoky Quartz Vogel Wand comes with its own free leather and sheepskin lined pouch to protect it when not in use.
