This Sparkling 14 Sided Vogel Phi Crystal Healing Wand, created by Brazilian Master-cutter Ray Pinto, is 4.65 inches long and weighs 5.1 ounces, or 144 grams. This wand has a brilliant finish and an unblemished surface, with elegant proportions.
This water-clear Vogel Phi crystal wand has a very comfortable fit in the hand for a lightworker or meditator. It has a very nice feel to it, well-proportioned, slim, and tapering to a definitive point. It is water clear throughout and comes with a free pouch for safekeeping.
We got this amazing new Vogel Wand from Ray in February 2023. You can see the beautiful scalloped edges on the termination tips defining the facets on the shaft, indicative of the quality of the loving craftsmanship Ray lavished on this wand.
Properties of the Vogel 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.
To learn more about Marcel Vogel and his techniques for crystal healing, read the first several chapters of his never-before-published autobiography, edited by Curtis Lang, which is in our Vogel Archives.
You'll find Marcel Vogel's instructions for using crystals for healing and meditation in the book along with a lot of other very important information for all metaphysical rockhounds.
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.
The large, female end of each of Ray Pinto's Master Cut Vogel wands is cut to resemble the Phi proportioned Great Pyramid of Giza. The C-Axis is precisely defined, all the flat facets are equal in size, and the termination tips are accurately centered and aligned exactly with the C-Axis running through the center of the shaft. This is your guarantee of authenticity.
The best six-sided natural healing wands with well-centered male and female terminations, had a female termination with an angle of 51 degrees, 51 minutes and 51 seconds, equal to the angle of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
In his early experiments with cutting healing crystals, which he conducted for many years, Marcel Vogel saw a 3 dimensional version of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life in a dream, which is shaped very much like four sided crystal wand with pyramidal double termination tips. Vogel created his first 4-sided healing 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, 13 and 14 sided double terminated crystal healing wands and 6 sided 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.
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.
This wand comes with its own FREE handmade pouch constructed of 100% polyester fleece and micro bonded suede that has the look and feel of real sheepskin. They are designed for a snug fit and come with extra padding to protect delicate tips and points.
This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It has also been cleaned and charged with the natural energy of sunlight. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
