This X-Large 14 sided Vogel Phi Crystal Wand, created by Brazilian Master-cutter and crystal healer Ray Pinto, is 5.15 inches long and weighs 7 ounces or 199 grams.
The female termination tip of this Vogel Phi crystal looks like a small pyramid, because this wand was cut to mimic the proportions of the Great Pyramid at Giza, which is thought to be a mammoth antenna and amplifier for Universal Life Force Energy, built with Phi ratio proportionality.
This Master Cut Vogel Wand was cut by Brazilian Crystal Cutter and Healer Ray Pinto, and is extraordinary in every way. We got this amazing new Vogel Wand from Ray in February of 2023.
Ray Pinto and Satya Center's Curtis Lang discuss sacred geometry at the 2007 Denver Gem and Mineral Show.
This water-clear Vogel 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.
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.
The History of Vogel Healing Wands
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.
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.
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.
“The crystal is a neutral object whose inner structure exhibits a state of perfection and balance,” according to crystal researcher Marcel Vogel, a senior scientist with IBM for 27 years. “When it's cut to the proper form and when the human mind enters into relationship with its structural perfection, the crystal emits a vibration which extends and amplifies the powers of the human mind. Like a laser, it radiates energy in a coherent, highly concentrated form, and this energy may be transmitted into objects or people at will.”
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.
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.

The male termination tip of this gorgeous healing wand is fashioned to form an extremely sharp tip designed to maximize the coherence and strength of energy streaming from the wand, while the pyramidal female termination tip was cut to approximate the sacred geometry displayed by the Great Pyramid of Giza.
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 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.
Over time, Marcel also designed 6, 8, 12, 13 and 14 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 ofcrystal 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.
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.
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.
