"The Triad is the Form of the completion of all things." -- Nichomachus of Gerasa, Greek Neo-Pythagorean Philosopher
This 4 inch long Marcel Vogel Water Clear Smoky Quartz Triangular Healing Wand, weighing a little over 1/4 pound, is a Lightworker's power tool and a collector's item with a powerful personal connection to the famous American Master of Crystal Healing. This wand is cut from natural, untreated Brazilian Quartz Crystal.
This Water Clear Triangular Laser Vogel Wand from our special collection is extraordinary in every way. Master Crystal Cutter Ray Pinto, who has been cutting world-class healing wands based on the designs of IBM scientist and crystal healer Marcel Vogel for decades, has replicated the design of one of Marcel Vogel's favorite healing wands, available now to Satya Center exclusively.
Recently, Jane and I were privileged to receive some paintings and papers of Marcel's from his family, who wish to see his teachings and hiswork more widely distributed to the public. We took pictures of a beautiful portrait of Marcel holding a crystal healing wand, and in one picture Jane is holding one of Marcel's favorite healing wands in her hand in front of the portrait.
Jane and I were delighted to have the opportunity to hold this unique wand in our hands, and to experience the energy for ourselves. We were amazed by the heart-centered energy signature of this beautiful crystal wand, and we decided to have our favorite cutter of Vogel wands, Ray Pinto, replicate this design of Marcel's for distribution to Lightworkers worldwide.
Ray's work more than lived up to our expectations. We have been "test-driving" these beauties in Reidi sessions and in meditation, and we have found that this style of Vogel wand has an energy signature that resonates with the open heart chakra, making this an ideal crystal to use in healing treatments or in meditation practices of all kinds.
For healers working in the shamanic healing tradition of Alberto Villoldo, water clear Vogel wands are considered a requirement for extraction work, which removes negative energies and entities from individuals' auras and bodies. This Triangular Dream Flower Vogel Wand would be the ultimate shamanic tool for practitioners from such a school.
Design Properties of the Marcel Vogel Triangular Laser Wand
This precision light instrument, with a unique cut based upon the specifications of legendary scientist and crystal healer Marcel Vogel, is a powerful subtle energy tool, and can be used for many kinds of healing work as well as for meditation.
Marcel Vogel worked for IBM for 27 years doing research and development. He developed the magnetic coating for IBM’s disc drive, which acts as the storage unit for a computer's memory, he created the first liquid crystal displays, or LCDs.
From his experimental work with crystals, Vogel learned that by pointing a crystal at another person, the crystal would amplify the person’s thoughts and emotions. This often also led to putting the individual into an altered state of consciousness. The next step was for Vogel to utilize the quartz crystals for therapeutic purposes.
Marcel Vogel sought to use the power of science and of the lapidary arts to perfect crystalline forms of nature in order to maximize their potential for receiving, amplifying and transmitting Universal Life Force Energy charged with the intent to heal and with the force of love. Vogel cut his crystals to harmonize with the natural quartz structure to enhance the energetic properties of the wand for healing purposes, and the result is also aesthetically pleasing.
The male termination tip of this gorgeous healing wand is fashioned to form a curvilinear triangular tip designed to maximize the coherence and strength of energy streaming from the wand, while the female termination tip was 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, which displays three pentagonal faces and three triangular faces. Crystals with one or more five-sided faces and opposed by triangular faces are known as Isis crystals. Isis crystals like this one can assist us in connecting with the Divine Mother. Isis was known as the Egyptian Queen of Magic and Giver of Life. For both men & women, such a crystal can help to balance the male/female aspects of our beings or bring in the qualities of the Divine Mother: nurturing, strength, self love, Universal Love & compassion. Isis crystals can help to foster the native intelligence we all have, called Intuition.
As the prana spirals down the shaft of the wand, the energy stream is amplifed every time it encounters a facet on the shaft. The Triangular Vogel Healing Wand has three large faces on the shaft, and three narrow faces, all of which narrow down as the shaft approaches the terination tip.
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.

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.
Marcel Vogel's healing wands were refined artistic versions of this well-known type of natural healing wands. Good Vogel wands should have precisely equal facets, good clarity, preferably 90% or more, a well-defined C-axis that runs parallel to the shaft, and termination tips centered in the very middle of the shaft. The male and female terminations should be sharp, and the male should be more acute than the female. The female termination should be larger than the male tip.
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.
In his early experiments with cutting healing crystals, which he conducted for many years, Marcel Vogel saw the Kabbalistic Tree of Life in a dream, which is shaped very much like four sided crystal wand with double termination tips. He created his first wands in that shape, and told the story of their origin in the crystal healing workshops he gave students around the world.
Over time, Marcel also designed 6, 8, 12 and 13 sided double terminated crystal healing wands and similar single terminated meditation crystals with a flat base. At first he and his family cut them and sold them to students of crystal healing. Later they involved other cutters as well.
Ray Pinto's brother Walber Pinto studied directly with Marcel Vogel, who is now deceased, and Ray and Walber have practiced crystal healing and precision cutting of crystal healing wands for decades. Their artisanship and dedication to energy healing is well known wherever Lightworkers gather throughout the world.
Since Marcel’s death in 1991, crystal designers and cutters like Ray Pinto and Drew Tousley, who was one of Marcel Vogel’s early cutters, have created healing crystal wands of new types with incredibly complex designs based upon principles of sacred geometry, which are still true to the basic ideas of Marcel Vogel.
Today, we have 24-sided, 33-sided, 44-sided, 88-sided 108-sided and 144-sided Kabbalistic crystal healing wands, cut in the highly geometrical style originated by Marcel Vogel.
In addition we have Dream Vogel wands, created by Ray Pinto after Marcel came to him in a dream in the early Nineteen Nineties.
Drew Tousley designed Angel wands that exhibit double termination tips, a distinctive oblong shape, an amazing finish, and incredibly beautiful faceting that creates an inner kaleidoscope when you look at one termination tip dead-on. And the proliferation of healing crystals continues to this day.
Internationally acclaimed crystal cutter and artist Lawrence Stoller creates crystal healing wands that depart completely from pre-determined geometrical shapes. Lawrence’s crystal healing wands have more natural-looking forms, still derived from crystalline growth patterns, and his wands have a gentle, soothing energy that warms the heart. The size of facets on the shaft usually varies, the crystal’s overall shape a perfected version of a complex crystal found in nature.
Lawrence's work is in museums & collections worldwide. He has created a magnificent centerpiece for American Express's Eleven Tears World Trade Center Memorial. Visit the Lawrence Stoller section of our store to see more of his beautiful wands and pendants.
Lawrence's crystals are reminiscent of the artwork of indigenous artists from around the world, where in creating a work of art, they first 'listen' to the piece of stone, or wood, or ivory, to 'hear' & see the form that wants to emerge. Lawrence's work is a true co-creation with Nature.
And there are many more varieties of crystal healing wands emerging as we enter the 21st century. As we in America look back on the history of crystal healing in our country, we will continue to honor the work of Marcel Vogel and do our best to distribute the loving wisdom he offered his students during his lifetime.
Mineralogical and Metaphysical Properties of Smoky Quartz Crystals
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.
Marcel Vogel said that Smoky Quartz acts as a fabulous "energy sponge", which crystal healers can use to remove detrimental, negative and unwanted energies from the aura, mind and physical body of the individual.
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 wand comes with its own protective suede & sheepskin lined pouch, valued at $50, with a closure at one end to protect it when not in use.
