BASIC CRYSTALLOGRAPHY AND THE GROWTH OF CRYSTALS
What is a
Crystals are a key to unlock the transformative capacity within each of us
and to accelerating our conscious evolution.
The word crystal is derived from the Greek word “krystallos,”
meaning frozen light.
A crystal can be considered as a systematic, orderly and repetitious patterning of
energies that is a precipitate of Light. Some
speculate that Light is stepped down
through many levels or dimensions before a
physical form manifests.
It is the forming aspect of Light that creates the
highly ordered array of energies
we call a crystal. The completed crystal will
be altered from its original intended
form should this Light pre-form be altered in any way. This can happen through changes in environmental factors relevant to
growth or through the intervention
In his laboratory at IBM, Marcel Vogel witnessed and photographed
this precipitation of Light while
growing liquid crystals and wrote subsequently
in his Psychic Research Newsletter:
“In all of nature there is a continual process of information
being passed from one object to another
as well as within itself. I speak here
of information as ‘that summation of vibrations, electrical pulses
which cohere together to present to the environment a distinct state unique to
Matter then can cohere into the form or pattern which brings about
a new state of matter.
“In 1960, I started research in the study of liquid
crystals. Liquid crystals are an intermediate state between
solid and liquid matter.
“There are two means of inducing these intermediate states. One is
by heating an object until it melts.
The other is by dissolving a solid into a
solution. A heated system is called a thermotropic mesophase;
system is called a lyotropic mesophase.
“When cool, if a liquid crystal state exists, the melt goes into a
birefringent state under polarized light
which can be readily seen under a
polarizing microscope. From this state the sample will then crystallize into
“In the course of the study of this state under the microscope I
noticed a remarkable event, namely
that before the melt went into the liquid
crystal state, a blue flash of light took place and then immediately
the sample transcended into the liquid crystal state.
“This state was videotaped and after one year of effort a picture was taken at
the moment of transition.
What appeared on the film was the prefiguring in space of the crystallographic form the system was to
The blue flash contained information which formed into a geometric form. This
geometric form was the source
of the crystal; the holographic form from which the crystal grew and developed.
“We have here a consolidation of thermal variation, electrostatic
change, light, electronic oscillation
the chemical components all combining together to produce an informational
unit which became critical,
it emits light
and transitions of state then occur.”

The photograph described is of blue light that is in the shape of
a crystal. One can see that in some areas
within the blue light there is a gold
color emerging. The gold color is the actual crystal that is precipitating
the light. The light is the consciousness of the crystal, or perhaps of the
atoms within that constitute
the crystal, that is about to precipitate into
This is an important point: the form of the crystal is a precipitate of
the Light rather than the Light being
a radiant quality of the form.
According to Dan Winter, in his book Alphabet of
the Heart, it is the short wave ultra-violet blue
that drives cell metabolism and is fired at the
moment of DNA cell division. It is the same light that
flashes at the moment of crystallization of
information into matter, the precipitation of a crystal
According to Winter, “Precipitation is the
crystallization seeded by wave symmetry, nested by the
focus of attention/touch.” (P33)

in her book The Consciousness of the Atom writes:
“We have seen that the atom of chemistry, for instance, demonstrates
the quality of intelligence,
it shows symptoms of discriminative mind and the rudiments of selective capacity.
Thus the tiny life within the atomic
form is demonstrating a psychic quality - take the atom that goes to
the building of form in the mineral kingdom; it shows not only discriminative
selective mind, but elasticity.”P68
“Let us endeavor to realize that there is no such thing as inorganic
matter, but that every atom is a life.
Let us realize that all forms are living
forms, and that each is but the vehicle of expression for some
indwelling entity.” P74
Dr. Charles Littlefield, in his books The Beginning and Way of Life
and Man, Minerals, and Masters, states:
"My first discovery was that the force of nature through which mind
controls the mineral salts of organic life...this is the vital force of plants,
animals, and man. This force is a subtle magnetism generated by the
evaporation of water. The subtle magnetism can be modulated by man's mind and
can build it into thoughtforms. In addition to this, you shall discover, then,
the force through which the creative mind acts upon matter in the beginning, and
you shall bring this force into vibratory agreement with its own creative state
of mind. Then it can also act upon matter. If in addition to this, you shall
prepare matter in the same delicate manner, by the same process nature used in
the beginning, this material will respond to the mental images as it did then.
This law of energy agreement, which I have expressed, is vibratory harmony that
is equal in rate of vibration. While agreement in material composition is
expressed as chemical equilibrium, it is balanced in material proportions. When
you have this energy agreement, you have a vibratory harmony. If now the
vibratory proportions are exactly those to give expression to a certain rate of
vibration of the vital force and this rate corresponds to the rate of
vibration of mind image, then that image will become a living form, whether it
be reptile or human. This necessary law of agreement dominates all
organic matter from amoeba to man"
This means that life could be brought into form by a
single thought. This is how thought forms are brought into manifestation.
although perhaps complex in description, we are doing this everyday,
unconsciously. We are able, by developing the appropriate skill, to do this
Marcel demonstrated this when growing cholesterol esters
on a micro slide during his lunch hour. As the crystals grew, he focused his
mind on the liquid and held in consciousness an image of the Blessed Virgin.
Below is the photo he was able to capture.

Crystals emerge in the process of the cooling of magma or molten rock
of several thousand degrees Celsius. As it cools the magma is unable to maintain
various materials in a liquid state. Throughout the
various stages of cooling
assorted matter precipitates out of the liquid state until eventually all the
It is in this process of precipitation that rocks,
crystals, and assorted minerals arise. Minerals appear
when the solid formed from the magma is homogenous whereas rocks develop when the solid formed is
comprised of several types of minerals.
Rocks and minerals formed directly from the cooling of liquid magma are called
igneous or magmatic.
Magma is a moving liquid state from
various minerals will develop. It can be thought of as the
implicate order of the mineral state.
The elements (unmanifest intention)
contained in the magma determine what minerals will rise from
undifferentiated state. The
composition of magma differs from place to place around the world
different minerals will form in different locales.
External factors such as
heat, pressure, and cooling will cause different minerals to form from the same
potential state due to the variation in the external influences. The process of
crystallization and the
variable in this process will determine what arises from
the magmatic potential. Minerals that are created in
this way are called
primary. Depending upon where they are formed they are referred to as volcanic
(from volcanoes or lava flows), or plutonic (intrusive), meaning from underground.
The name plutonic is
derived from the god Pluto who was considered to rule the
underground (or unconscious).
Such formations intrude into existing rock
formations and may be of three types:
that usually contain very tiny minerals or crystals are called Vulcanites.
example of this would be pumice.
Another type of vulcanite is obsidian, which is
formed when lava cools quickly and forms rocks with
no crystals. Obsidian is a quickly formed glass-like mass that is not a rock or crystal and has an
amorphous or irregular molecular structure. Like all glassy rocks, they have an
amorphous molecular structure and will not
store information or hold a charge. They are not crystals. Crystals, on the other hand, have a
very precise and
regular molecular structure. The importance of this will be
Other Vulcanites include such crystals as moonstone,
fluorite, kunzite, the various quartzes, and so on.
On the surface of the planet the impact of the elements of wind and
water will greatly change the
pre-existing rock formations. This is called
weathering and causes the erosion of everything on the surface
of the earth.
Large and small particles broken off and moved by the process of weathering tend
to the lower lying areas. Avalanches are a very dramatic example of
this. Rivers and streams often transport the
material moved by such processes.
The flowing water moving over rocks will, over time, result in the polishing
of these rocks. An example of this is river quartz; a smooth polished stone that
looks like it was polished in
a lapidary tumbler. In fact it was polished in
nature’s tumbler: a river or stream.
The process of weathering and erosion creates sand from the
many small fragments that are broken
over eons of time. Many small
particles of minerals are found in mud with some being so small
dissolved in the water as salt, for example. To the extent that the water
it will carry these particles from place to place. When the
flow stops the particles will settle, building up
over time, forming sediment
and eventually sedimentary rock.
Examples of this are selenite, calcite,
dolomite, pyrite, and globular pyrite (commonly called boji stones).
When rocks are close to the surface of the earth they are
impacted by water in the form of rain, run-off,
and so on and this causes
elements in the water to penetrate the rocks through cracks and crevices.
of these chemicals will dissolve the rock to a greater or lesser degree creating
the release of elements
that can form other substances. These sedimentation
processes usually occur between the surface of the earth
and the water table.
This zone is known as the oxidation zone because oxygen from the atmosphere is
still active here and
affects the development of the rocks and minerals.
Oxidation is the release of electrons and is a process
through which mineral
compounds can be formed. When atoms of a metal, for example, release electrons
these atoms become ions and are able to form new compounds or be dissolved in
Minerals that are typically found in this
oxidation zone are azurite, malachite, chrysacolla, turquoise,
Next to the water table is the cementation zone where
solutes are precipitated out and metal ions
become neutral metal atoms once
more. This is opposite to what occurs in the oxidation zone.
This is where
metals like silver and copper are found.
Through sedimentary formation, the process of weathering
causes the dissolution of various rocks
and the substances released and eroded
into solution will later combine with other elements to form
Rocks deep within the earth are subject to intense pressure
and heat from the magma that is continually
present. The currents of the magma
within the earth cause the tectonic plates to be continually moving like
upon water. In some areas these plates overlap and buckle result in the dramatic
creation of mountains.
It is thought that only 10% of the mass is pushed upward
in this process. 90% is pushed downward.
Mountains usually form in long chains
such as the Rocky Mountains that divide North America.
The movement and pressure of this process causes the various
rocks involved to restructure themselves
to accommodate the new environment.
Randomly positioned crystals often become ordered and under the
crossways to the force of the pressure. These crystals are squeezed and
extrudes from the rocks to form new minerals. As the minerals
are pressed together they may exchange
elements with the moving rock plates.
This change and exchange saves space and offers resistance to the
resulting in the formation of new rocks.
Heat also plays a role. The rocks may experience
temperatures higher than molten magma and yet
the intense pressure prevents it
from liquefying. The rock will become transformed and is known as
rock. Metamorphic rocks are also formed by compression and by being overlaid and
far into the depths of the earth. Examples of metamorphic rock are
kyanite, garnet, jade, and marble.
There are three parts to the study of crystallography: the
chemical, physical, and geometrical aspects.
We will first look at some basics
of the chemical constituents of quartz in order to appreciate the matrix
which we will be working.
Quartz is grown, from solution, during cooling within the earth and is
composed of a tetrahedral molecule, silicon and
oxygen, to be silicon dioxide (SiO2).
The ratio of elements is about 47% silicon and 53% oxygen. There are four
oxygen atoms forming a tetrahedron with a single silicon atom in the middle.
With a hardness of 7 on Moh's scale, quartz can scratch glass but glass is
unable to scratch quartz.
H2O and SiO2
SiO2 molecules linked together
It generally grows in a right handed spiral from a
nucleating site, a tiny particle of silicon. It can, however,
form a left hand spiral, or even a combination of both. The spiraling tetrahedra
are of a particular spatial ratio. Consciousness contains all the information
needed for the crystal to grow into its hexagonal prismatic pattern.
The spatial lattice of the crystal can be thought of as a energetic honeycomb, another
hexagonal form. If the elements of this unit cell are separated, the cell
becomes chaotic, with no information, randomly floating about. memory capacity
whatsoever. If the solution cools too fast it becomes a gel, and again the
aspect of memory is lost. Silica gel, available at pharmacies, has no memory
While growth is happening, there is a dynamic going on. The crystal
is "alive" and it can be affected by thought.
The process can be expanded or contracted, accelerated or decelerated, by
thought from an external source.
The growth is dependent upon temperature, cooling, particles
of SiO2 available etc.
At the beginning of growth, the information from the initiating seed may not
initially create the "perfect" crystal it is programmed for. In this case the
initial portion of their growing crystal may be densely milky and opaque. This
is a kind of "confusion" on the part of the growing crystal. As growth
continues, more and more clarity manifests.
Entropy begins to set in and the terminations of the crystal form as, cell by
cell, material ceases to accrete to the growing quartz. This dynamic forms the
sloping rhombohedra that are the sloping terminations of the crystal. At completion,
the vitality of the crystal leaves
and it is essentially a shell or skeleton. It remains this way until we
breathe the breath of life into it.
Like all life forms there is a "life expectancy" to the
crystal. When the information transferred through its consciousness reaches
completion the vitality leaves. Those that we see in shops and so forth are
the remains of a once vital life form. It is up to us to enliven the crystal to
help it fulfill its "destiny" with us
though love and service. All of the forces in and around the growing crystal are
stored within its matrix and will impact any user who has chosen to work with
it. These need to be removed before the crystal can become an effective and
useful tool. There are various ways to do this, such as degaussing and faceting.
An atom consists of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Protons and
neutrons are electrically positive
and neutral, respectively, and form the
nucleus of the atom. Electrons are electrically negative and form an
energetic cloud around the nucleus in what are traditionally considered to be orbits. This
is very much like
the orbiting of planets around a star. Each orbit is a
different level of energy with each being able to
maintain a different number of
electrons. The first shell, closest to the nucleus can maintain two electrons.
Orbits three and four can hold eight each, and shell four can maintain up to
There is a strong tendency for the atom to be in electrical
balance so that the positive proton charge
of the nucleus is usually balanced by
the negative charge of the electrons spinning around it. Even at this
level of existence there is a seeking of balance, which is the core of health and
An atom may have only one electron orbiting in a single shell to
maintain balance, as in hydrogen,
or it may have many up to its maximum in each
of multiple shells. Once there are the maximum number
electrons in orbit, the
additional electrons must create another shell around the nucleus.
Atoms do not move freely from shell to shell but require
an input of energy for this to happen.
Such input is called a quantum. The movement of the electron from one shell to
another is quite strange
our normal linear thinking. The electron does not move through space to the next
shell, but rather disappears
from its original location and instantly appears in the next shell. This is
known as a quantum leap.
There is no gradual movement from one shell to another. An electron cannot be
halfway between shells or
orbital pathways. It is either here or there, it is never in between.
In regard to the formation of molecules that make crystals, it is
the outermost shells that are of interest
to us. There are three basic forms of
matter with which we are familiar: solid, liquid, and gas. In a gas,
molecules are very loosely held together allowing a rather free and random
movement. We can move
through a gas, such as fog or mist, with little
difficulty. A liquid exists when the molecules have a greater
attraction to each
other. This attraction or bonding is not strong enough, however, to lock the
a rigid form. The most common example of this is water. A solid
is matter in which the attraction between
molecules is quite strong and they are
held rigidly in place. A crystal forms in the transition
from a gas or
There are two types of bonds that hold atoms and therefore
molecules to each other.
One is the ionic bond. This is a simple
electrical attraction between atoms. An ion is created when
loses an electron and therefore the electrical balance is lost. The gain of an
a negative ion whereas the loss of an electron results in a
positive ion. When two atoms
with opposite charges
come near each other a
bonding can occur so that the two linking together create
an electrical balance
We see ionic bonding in sodium chloride crystals, i.e. table salt.
The sodium atom is lacking an electron,
giving it a positive charge (Na+) and
the chlorine atom has an extra electron, giving it a negative charge (Cl).
extra chorine atom locks into the orbit or shell of the sodium atom creating a
bond. The crystal formed by
these two elements is very brittle and has what is
called good cleavage. Good cleavage is when a crystal breaks
into flat planes.
Such crystals, growing in flat planes or plates, form layers that create the
When the molecular bond is weak, as in an ionic bond, there can be
a slippage between the planes or plates
with little external pressure. This
happens when the internal structure of the crystal is made to slide just the
distance of one atom. There is an immediate repulsion rather than attraction.
Ionic bonding is not particularly
Another type of bond that can form between atoms is a covalent
bond. This occurs when the outermost shells
of two atoms are not filled to
the maximum. This can happen between two atoms of the same kind.
Even though the
atoms may be in electrical balance, because there is a strong tendency for
electrons to travel
in pairs, the two atoms will “decide” to share electrons in
order to fill the outermost shells of each.
The term “valence” refers to the
name given to the electrons that fill the shells. They are called valence
electrons. Atoms have a tendency to “want” the outermost shells filled so that
there are four pairs of electrons
in orbit. An example of this type of bonding
is found in quartz crystals.
These are the building blocks of matter and therefore of all
crystals. Atoms form molecules that align
themselves in particular geometric
patterns depending upon the type of crystal that is forming. Each crystal
is demonstrating a particular aspect of consciousness that is able to use the
lines of force through which
the molecular or chemical constituents will pattern
themselves. It is as if the consciousness “rides” the natural geometry created
by the chemistry of the crystals to generate a form through which to manifest.
manifestations of consciousness can be seen in the geometry demonstrated by the primary
crystal classifications. The atoms of any crystal form a unit cell of
which then create a spatial
lattice. A lattice is a geometrical arrangement of points in space.
If you are not familiar with geometry or crystallography or you think
it is difficult, just read this material
slowly and use the illustrations. Don’t
let the big words intimidate you. It’s the concepts that are important,
technical language. I realize that in parts some of these descriptions sound
like directions on how to
assemble what you thought was a simple piece of
furniture and you end up needing a dictionary just to read
the instructions. Go
slowly, use the pictures and be concerned only with conclusions. If you
persevere a little,
the rewards will be well worthwhile. Love and geometry is
the basis of healing and consciousness work
although it is not always
articulated this way. To understand these dynamics about the crystal is to
more about yourself.
In the three dimensional world there must be at least three points
involved as co-ordinates to determine
the position and shape of an object. In
crystals these are the lines of force or axes along which the chemical
constituents will grow. The vertical axis is called the “C” or central axis. It
has a positive and negative pole.
There are at least two horizontal axes (in quartz there are
three). These are designated as “A” and “B”
and each passes through the vertical
“C” axis at 900.
The point where “A”, “B”, and “C” intersect is called
cross and it is from this pattern
6 crystal systems arise.
Consciousness will use this model
in slightly different ways to create
it wants as determined by the chemicals involved.
It can be
interesting to follow
the pattern in each system
and notice the effect is has on
your consciousness. This can give you an insight not only into the
applications of various geometries, but the possible application
THE HEXAGONAL CRYSTAL SYSTEM
The hexagonal system is of the greatest interest to us because it
is the one on which quartz is patterned.
It demonstrates four axes of
orientation. We could also call these four axes of intention.
There is a
vertical “C” axis with three other axes intersecting it. The three horizontals
intersect at 1200 between their positive ends. The vertical axes and the three horizontals
intersect at 900.
If you were to look
at these from above you could see that the three horizontals
divide a circle into six equal sections with each
polarized to the next.
Our interest in the hexagonal system is quartz so we will limit
our discussion to just this aspect.
It belongs to the hexagonal/trigonal system,
which is the patterning for the crystal growth.
different atoms form quartz: silicon and oxygen. Recalling briefly our
discussion of atoms:
the outermost shell of the oxygen atom has six electrons
in orbit and the silicon atom has four.
When these two come together a situation
is created in which two extra electrons remain when
the two outermost shells of
silicon and oxygen bond. The result is that these two extra electrons
silicon atom attract to it another oxygen atom that has six electrons orbiting
in its outermost
The chemical formula of quartz is SiO2:
one atom of silicon (Si) and two atoms of oxygen (O2).
The silicon atom shares two of its electrons with one oxygen atom and two
of its atoms with another
oxygen atom. The form created is that of
tetrahedra that link together in an up to down fashion and
create a spiraling
chain of linked molecules parallel to the vertical or “C” axis. This spiral will
clockwise or counter clockwise and can sometimes be determined by the
external form of the crystal.
The property of rotational direction of the
crystal is called enantiomorphism. Most of us would refer to
the crystal being
right handed or left-handed. In other words, do the molecules rotate to the
right or left?
We will describe later how to determine this from the external
form of the crystal.
Quartz is in the trigonal part of the hexagonal system. What does
this mean? A hexagonal prism is
an open form that is six sided and parallel to
the vertical axis. Ideally this is seen when each side of a
quartz crystal is
the same width. With the tip or tips of the crystal removed this is what we
a hexagonal prism:
This hexagonal prism forms the body of the crystal, but something
a little different happens at the
terminations or tips. Usually there are three
primary or dominant (larger) faces and three secondary or
faces on the termination of quartz. To understand why this happens we need to
a little at the trigonal section of the hexagonal crystal system.
The easiest form to see in the termination of quartz is a positive
It usually forms the
dominant or larger set of three faces that
form the tip.
These faces usually have more luster or are brighter
three smaller faces.
In crystal drawings the positive rhombohedron is designated
The smaller or subordinate three faces of the termination are
formed by a negative rhombohedron
that is designated by “z”.
The positive right trigonal trapezohedron that forms is usually
not expressed or visible on a crystal
of quartz. When it is seen at the
junction of the two prism faces (“m”) and the positive rhombohedron (“r”)
and shows as a trapezohedral planar shape with high luster
or brightness and is
designated by the letter “x”.
This form will be found at the junction of the positive
rhombohedron (“r”) and
the prism face (“m”),
which is in line
vertically with the negative rhombohedron (“z”). It forms an elongated
rhombus shaped face
and is rarely present.
These forms can be used to determine, externally, the “handedness”
of a quartz crystal. This means
that to determine the direction in which the SiO2
molecules are spiraling or braided around the “C” axis of the crystal:
Determine which alternating set of 3 faces is largest and has the greatest
The set of dominant faces is the positive rhombohedron (r).
faces are the negative rhombohedron.
2. Hold the
crystal with its termination upward and rotate it horizontally until the
positive rhombohedron faces you.
3. If the
trigonal trapezohedron (x) and the trigonal pyramid (s) are on the
lower right of
the positive rhombohedron (r), it is a right-handed
4. If the
trigonal trapezohedron (x) and the trigonal pyramid (s) are on the
lower left of the
positive rhombohedron (r), the crystal is left-handed.
5. If both
situations described in steps 3 and 4 exist then the crystal is what is known as
Brazilian twin and it is both left and right handed.
Brazil twins are common enough but to see all the faces displayed is
What are known as twins can form when two or more of the
same crystal grow together.
Brazil or Dauphine twins occur when
crystals penetrate one another during growth and have parallel axes.
With the Dauphine twins the threefold are rotated 180o
to each other. Often triangles or four sided diamond
shapes can be seen on the terminations or face of the crystal. These are often
prosaically called "recorder" or
Brazil twins seems to be joined at the
bottom and is if one crystal is growing out of the other.
The most well known twinned crystal is the Herkimer Diamond. It grows in a
of concentric rings
in its growth solution. It virtually floats in a solution of SiO2.
The solution itself is usually in a pocket
Quartz crystal, the stable low temperature form of silica, begins
its life from a hot mineral rich
vapor or supersaturated solution
of silicon dioxide (SiO2) deep within the earth in caves, pockets,
crevices, or tunnel like formations. Alpha quartz, which is the form with which
we are concerned,
forms at about 5730C
or less and at approximately one atmosphere of pressure. The temperature can
change if the pressure changes. Deep within the earth there may be greater
pressure and the alpha
quartz will form at a higher temperature. Regardless, as
this solution cools a unit cell or seed cell of
quartz forms and adheres to a
silica-based matrix such as granite or sandstone. The nucleating site for
formation of the initial seed can be a speck of dust or silica present in the
host site. This unit cell is
a tetrahedral shaped molecule composed of four
atoms of oxygen with a single silicon atom suspended
within. The ratio of
silicon to oxygen in quartz is approximately 47% silicon dioxide and 53% oxygen.
Sometimes the initiating seed will precipitate right out of the supersaturated
solution. This can happen
through cooling as well as a mechanical shock or
movement in the environment.
The crystal grows by accretion with atoms or ions from the SiO2
solution, layer upon layer, slowly growing itself into the form of quartz with
which we are all familiar.
Each atom is laid down where there
is present the
greatest number of bonding sites to other silicon or oxygen atoms. At any given
the growth of the crystal,
this is the area of greatest energy. In a
hydrothermal environment it is often
the direction from which the solution is
flowing. In a completed crystal this direction can sometimes be
noting the dominant face. This is where the greatest amount of nutrient was
and this would be the surface that faces the supply/flow of silicon
The primary unit cell or lattice is basically a highly ordered
array of spatial harmonics that acts as
an attractor or nucleating sight for
other SiO2 unit cells.
Over hundreds of millions of years trillions
of these cells link together and through
a spiraling motion layer upon layer of
silicon dioxide is put down in the geometric patterning described above until
the crystal reaches completion terminating in a point.
Externally, layers can
sometimes be seen as lines on the crystal face. A miner once told me that each
could represent one million years of growth.
Each unit cell contains all the information needed to generate the
or six-sided shape we know as quartz crystal.
the external form of the crystal tends
to reflect the internal
The unit cell contains this information as a series of Light
codes. As mentioned earlier, these Light codes
are a precipitate of higher
dimensional frequencies that are stepped down through numerous levels until
manifest as a blue flash as they materialize within the physical plane.
Just as the internal aspects of the crystal are seldom perfect,
neither is the outer form of the crystal.
External influences such as earth
shifts, magnetic fluctuations, pressure and temperature changes within
affect the crystals as they grow.
The completed crystal is a literal physical
record or embodiment
of its history.
Few become the perfect, idealized,
hexagonal form found in textbooks. The growing crystal
must accommodate to the
growing environment. Consequently, there will be many secondary vibrations
imposed. The ideal form and potential is often unrealized. From the perspective
of healing work these
secondary vibrations are undesirable.
Despite the basic
hexagonal pattern created by the accretion of SiO2 molecules onto the
site, the external influences of temperature, pressure, and the
extent of saturation of the silicon dioxide
solution affect the ultimate form of
the crystal. Still, the
silicon dioxide grows according to the laws,
dynamics and intention imposed by
its origin and crystallographic type as described in our brief
molecules form chains or rings that are hexagonal in shape but somewhat
The clusters of molecules will layer one upon the other and
cause specific types of patterns to form.
They will simultaneously contract and
stretch and become slightly off center to one another as they
When these rings are moved through space by their stretching and
contracting, they become
slightly tilted and a three-dimensional form
and the successive layers are strongly bonded to
each other. Energy is stored
within the rings of silicon dioxide molecules.
There are also changing
vibrational modes within the atoms of each
molecule that cause a luminescence within the liquid crystal
form of the quartz,
as it shifts from one mode of vibration to another,
just before it precipitates
solid state. The luminescence is a specific frequency of light. The
vibrational pattern also keeps the energy
of the molecule internalized
so it can
be modulated. Each of the hexagonal rings in the crystalline chain
energy or vibration that resonates throughout the entire form.
The growth environment of the crystal with consequent distortions,
impurities, and irregularities affects
all of this.
The growth of quartz is the accretion of molecules to the surface
of the developing mineral.
The molecules lay down side by side and on top of
each other around the surface of the crystal.
Very frequently a crystal will
show distortions in its fundamental form geometry.
According to Holden and Holden in their book Crystals and
Distortions in the form of a crystal can happen due to variations in the
concentrations of the
solution around it as it grows. This can result in one or
sides of the crystal growing faster than
the others. In other words the
or the crystal have different growth rates.
2. The face
of the crystal that has adhered to the growth matrix will not grow.
This is the
end of a quartz crystal that is flat of appear to be ragged or broken.
growing from a supersaturated solution the crystal depletes the material from
making the solution less dense. This causes a density current or
flow that moves up the sides
of the crystal. As this current flows up the
crystal it deposits more material on the sides of the mineral.
The further up
the current flows the less material it carries as each time Si02 is
laid down the solution is
depleted. Consequently more material is deposited at
the bottom of the crystal than at the top creating
a slower growth rate on the
faces at the top than at the bottom.
4. A change
in the chemical environment will cause changes or distortions in the growing
Quartz always crystallizes along certain lines of force and at
specific angles. As mentioned,
these axes are lines of force and in quartz there
are four of them with
three being at 120o to each other.
axes are perpendicular or at right angles to the primary “C” (center) or growth
Regardless of the differences in the final form of the crystal, the
relationship of the angles of
the crystal faces remains constant.
We see in crystals what is called the law of constancy of
This means that the
adjacent corresponding faces in any
given crystal are the same
for every crystal of its mineral type.
As stated, in
quartz this is 120o.
The angle between each face on the body of the
crystal and its
corresponding termination face is about 141o. If a
right angle (90o) is subtracted from the termination angle, the
remaining angle is 51o. It is actually 51o 43minutes.
is close to the
Cheops pyramid. Because of this quartz demonstrates pyramid
angle energy dynamics.
the crystal, the interlattice angle (the bonding angle between adjacent SiO2
of quartz 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 close the angle of the base of the Cheops
The 52o angle is found at the point where the body of the
crystal meets the tip.
This is also called the girdle.
RESONANCE BETWEEN QUARTZ AND
The interlattice-bonding angle of 52o in quartz is
related to the intramolecular and intermolecular
angle of the bonds in water.
The bonding angle between molecules
for water is about 104.5o.
is the angle that exists between the hydrogen atoms of each water molecule. It
double that of the interlattice angle for quartz.
It is possible
that there is a compatible harmonic
between water and quartz because
similarity of these angles. This could allow a resonant
transfer of energies
that are stored within the crystal to a significant number of water molecules
any given sample.
The structure of quartz can replicate itself in water because it
is a resonant transfer based on
structure 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
and then transferred into the
structure of a grouping of water molecules.
The nature of resonant systems is such that a minimal input can achieve
a maximal output.
Resonance develops between quartz and water based on structure
and frequency and small amounts
of energy. Water will take on the same
crystallographic pattern as quartz. This will be described in
greater detail in
the chapter on water.
Another dynamic intrinsic to quartz is that of interpenetrating
the Star Tetrahedron or
the Star of David. It is a converging of
ascending and descending forces. When one looks at the idealized representation
of the four axes
of the crystal, one sees the vertical “C” axis and three others
to the growth plane at 120o to each other. The two
interpenetrating triangles of the
Star of David can easily
be superimposed onto
The basic effect of this template is to induce a standing wave
that can be qualified by
the energies of the user. One use of this pattern is a
protective psychic shield. This is also characteristic
of aspects of the Human
Energy Field or Merkaba. Quartz, especially when tuned properly, is very
effective in activating and stabilizing this field. This use will be described
in greater detail later.
As mentioned previously, it has been suggested that the helical
pattern of quartz and the helical
pattern of DNA exhibit the same ratio.
According to Dan Winter,
again from his book "Alphabet of the Heart," the
DNA spiral pattern demonstrates in one 3600 turn of its helix a ratio
This refers to the distance of a single 3600
turn of a DNA strand being 34-angstrom
units in the direction
of the axis of the strand while the width of the molecule
20-angstrom units. This relationship of 34:20 is
the Golden Mean Ratio of
and is the only ratio that allows complete information or geometrical
to cascade up or down the harmonic series without any loss of power or
It has also been suggested that this relationship exists in the
molecular pattern of quartz, water,
bone, fascia and cerebro-spinal fluid. This
being the case, it is quite apparent why quartz is able to
be such an effective
tool, as a resonant oscillator,
with the human body and able to facilitate the
healing process. When used properly an appropriately faceted and tuned quartz
crystal can act as a
bridge between one individual and another and one dimension
Quartz and DNA allow information or energy to reach between worlds
of scale by this
golden mean ratio. This happens through a wave activity and the
braiding of long wave data fields
to short wave data fields.
There are variations or alterations that can happen to quartz with
which most of us are familiar.
These alterations are called defects.
when a crystal is growing it will grow around a foreign substance or impurity
as part of itself. We see this in rutilated and tourmalinated
quartz when another mineral has been
included and has grown within a quartz
An atom of a foreign substance that has a similar lattice pattern or
order can periodically replace
an atom of the primary crystal resulting in what
is called a mixed crystal. We see this in alum where
potassium sulfate and
aluminum sulfate mix to form potassium aluminum sulfate (alum). Sometimes
chromium sulfate and potassium sulfate will mix to form potassium chromium
sulfate or chrome alum,
which is purple in color rather than clear.
Smokey quartz is formed by the
intrusion of minute amounts of aluminum into the lattice of the crystal. There
is a substitution of some of the silicon atoms with aluminum. Together with the
effects of natural radiation in the growing environment the crystal becomes
dark. If there is no aluminum present in the crystal it will not become dark.
According to Marcel Vogel the radiation causes lattice site vacancies or a
vacancy impurity in the molecular structure of the crystal. This means that an
electron is eliminated from an oxygen atom that is adjacent to one of the
This vacancy or “molecular hole”
allows the crystal to absorb rather than
reflect light and it becomes
to the degree of actual vacancies existing. Marcel found that such a crystal, if
irradiated with radiation from a dental x-ray device, will absorb
radioactivity. This can be measured with a Geiger counter or the Omega 5. A
person, who has been exposed to radioactivity, can transfer some of this into a
smokey quartz and then clear the crystal. Continued such treatment can reduce
the radioactivity absorbed by an individual from the initial source.
Bombarding a clear crystal with very
high levels radiation can also create lattice
site vacancies. Quartz treated like this usually becomes opaquely black. Natural smokey quartz is usually translucent. Regardless of the
source of the radiation, the application of
heat to a smoky quartz will cause the crystal to become
either clear again or to
a slight amber color.
This can happen simply by leaving the crystal exposed to sunlight
for a prolonged period of time.
Leaving smokey quartz on a window ledge where
sunlight can come through the glass for a few hours
each day and heat the
crystal will result in it becoming clear eventually.
CITRINE, AMETHYST, AND
Sometimes impurities can intrude into the crystal lattice in very
as little as parts per million. These impurities are usually
metals or salts that find there way
"into what are called interstitial defects.
The most common of these intruders is iron.
Depending upon how the iron is
intruded into the crystal the result can be either a citrine or an amethyst.
Citrine is caused by the presence of a particular form of iron,
colloidal ferric hydroxide,
replacing some of the silicon atoms in the growing quartz crystal.
The result is
of the color from clear to a spectrum ranging from
to a brownish orange hue.
The blue and red that is sometimes seen in amethyst is caused by the
intrusion of a form
of iron (Fe+4)
replacing a few of the silicon atoms in quartz. This form of iron absorbs all
except the red and blue and gives amethyst its violet hue. It is caused
by natural radiation in
the environment affecting the iron. Usually the color
appears in bands or layers due to the presence
of the iron impurities being in
or layers. This is one way of discerning a natural from
Another type of quartz, ametrine, is a combination of amethyst and
The iron impurities
affect the crystal in the ways described above, but
both occur within the same crystal. The result is
a layered banding of violet
The darkness of an amethyst or citrine can be enhanced or deepened by
Some practitioners think that these heat-treated crystals are
not satisfactory for meditation or
healing applications. This is something that
must be determined
by each individual to his other own satisfaction. Much of
the commercially available gem quality citrine and amethyst are heat-treated.
general, natural, non-heat treated quartz has color streaking. This means that
if one holds an untreated amethyst or citrine up to the light there will be
streaks of darkness and lightness in the color. Heat-treated pieces tend to
exhibit uniform color. This test is not always true, but it is a valuable
“rule of thumb”.
shows color from very light pink to a quite deep rosy red. The color is caused
impurities of phosphorous and aluminum. Other sources list traces of
and lithium as the color agents. Usually rose quartz grows
in what is called a “massive form”
rather than the crystalline form we associate
with the clear quartz. This is why we usually see
rose quartz in large blocks or
Mostly, it is opaque, but translucent specimens are found
from time to
As a crystal is growing there may be other minerals in the growth environment.
Often a crystalline “dust” will settle on the surface of the forming quartz
crystal, sometimes only on
the upper facets forming the tip creating a layer of quartz particles or even
As the crystal grows this “dust” is included and appears as a ghostly image
within - a phantom or ghost. Sometimes so much “dust” has gathered or been
included that it appears as if an entire other crystal
is within the primary crystal. This secondary crystal can be of varying colors.
If the “dust” is composed
of another mineral such as chlorite, the phantom will appear to be green.
Milky crystals occur when the solution from which the crystal is
growing fills many of the
open spaces on the surface of the mineral where
molecules are being laid down. The program within the initiating seed crystal is
not encoded properly into the beginning body of the crystal and there is a kind
of confusion that result in dense opaque milkiness. Sometimes before
molecules of Si02 in
solution have a chance to crystallize out onto growing quartz, other molecules
are laid down on top of the liquid, trapping it.
If this happens enough, the
trapped liquid will cause
a scattering of light that is seen as clouds or veils
within the crystal. Internal "bubbles" may cause what
appears to be veils, rainbows, or prisms. The form of the cloudiness or
veiling will depend upon the
of the vacancies occupied by the entrapped solution.
Other minerals, such as rutile or tourmaline, may become
part of the quartz crystal as it grows and includes
the external mineral.
Inclusions can occur in
quartz in two ways.
1. There can
be pre-existing minerals that formed earlier and crystals of quartz grew around
This process if frequent with inclusions of rutile, tourmaline, hematite,
and ruby. Rutilated and
tourmalinated quartz are common examples of this.
can be floating in the hydrothermal fluid from which quartz is growing and they
on the developing crystal. As the quartz continues to grow it “includes”
the deposited minerals.
This is seen frequently with chlorite inclusions and is
the process in which phantom crystals can form.
When quartz forms at high temperatures other chemicals may be
dissolved within its matrix.
As cooling happens the dissolved material exolves
out of the quartz and into discrete mineral particles.
Usually, in quartz, this
chemical is TiO2 (rutile). Rutile is a thin hair-like crystal
and in quartz it
orient itself along the three horizontal axes that are at right angles to
the “C” or central axis.
When light is shone onto such quartz that has been
made into a sphere it reflects back the light
along the six lines of the
horizontal axes. To see this one must look down the “C” axis of the crystal.
will seem as if a star appears. This phenomenon can happen with clear and rose
quartz as well as
other types of crystals such as rubies and sapphires.
The substitution of one atom for another in a crystal is known in the
computer industry as
“doping” the crystal. Crystals of silicon are often “doped”
to make them usable as computer
components. Germanium crystals will often be
made to have
atoms of arsenic or gallium creating
substitutional or interstitial
impurities in order
to make them effective as electrical components.
Synthetic quartz is often “doped” with other chemicals to give it
Cobalt, for example will
make the crystal an electric blue.
If one was growing crystals of quartz, or any other crystal, it is
possible to alter the crystal to
function in a certain specific way by “doping”
it with consciousness. Projecting the energy of one’s consciousness into the
crystal as it is growing, or into the seed, to create the matrix one wants does
As the crystal grew “atoms of consciousness” could be introduced into the
crystal as either substitutional
or interstitial intrusions. This could also be
accentuated by the physical “doping” of the crystal with other chemical elements
such as particular rare earth elements.
Clear, smokey, and citrine quartz are the crystals with which we are
primarily dealing in this work.
For the most part, amethyst and ametrine have
been excluded, as it is very rare to find the quality of
this form of quartz
necessary to create the type of healing instrument discussed here. Most amethyst
too many inclusions, fractures and so on for it to be of value for this kind
of work. Long single crystals of
optical amethyst are also very rare. Short,
stubby points are far more common. Exceptions to this, of course, would be
synthetic quartz. The growth and use of these crystals will be discussed later.
in general and quartz in particular form an important aspect
of the healing tools available to us and an understanding of their potential use
and possibilities is an important consideration.
Although other forms of quartz, and other crystals in general, may have
we will be dealing exclusively with quartz in these pages.
Many of the dynamics of working with quartz,
as outlined here, can be applied to
any crystal to determine its potential application. These are uses that
us must determine for ourselves rather than rely upon a “cookbook” kind of
listing that has been determined by others. The use of particular crystals is
often situational and generalizing applications
may not be advisable. The
response of one individual to a particular crystal may not carry over to
another. Always respect the situation and the individual.
Crystals are held in form by an arrangement of atoms, the lattice,
which is maintained
in a spatial array by their geometric patterning. Studying
its form geometry and understanding
the use of the consciousness that has
manifested this form can in part, determine the application
of any given
crystal. In the case of quartz this geometric patterning is the tetrahedron.
The tetrahedron is one of five primary shapes, known as the
platonic solids that meet
the following requirements:
1. All the
exterior points fit on the surface of a sphere;
2. All the
edges are equal
3. All the
surfaces are the same, and
4. There is
one common angle inside
As well as the tetrahedron there are four other shapes considered as
The energetic pattern of each of the Platonic solids is nested around
the physical body as line
of force that constitutes the human energy field.
In quartz, the tetrahedral form of the unit cell will pass through
various stages as it “grows”.
When two of the cells link together a cube will be
formed. The rotation of this cube around the
central axis will generate a
hexagonal pattern. The spiraling of the unit cells either to the left or
right (or sometime both as in twinning) will determine
the polarity of the
crystal. The geometry
of the spiraling tetrahedral molecules is the golden mean.
The golden mean ratio (1:1.618) is seen when a line is divided into
segments such that
the relationship of the whole to the larger segment is the
same as the relationship of the larger
segment to the smaller.
According to Dan Winter, when a spiral is patterned with this ratio it
the most efficient
energetic pattern for the transmission of energies
from higher to lower domains or from lower to higher.
There will be no loss of
information or energy.
The Golden Mean is a very fundamental pattern in nature. It can be seen
in the arrangement
of seeds in a sunflower, the spiraling of the pinecone or the
of leaves at each level on
a plant such as a philodendron. It is also
present in the braided coding of the DNA with each of our cells.
As stated, it
is the most effective relationship for the communication of information or
lower and higher levels of scale and vice versa. The arc of the
curve remains the same, as it becomes
larger and larger.
The matrix of a crystal is relatively highly ordered and stable.
It is this that gives it the ability
to maintain the integrity of information
that has been programmed into it. This is true of both
the internal and external
geometry of the crystal.
There is a simple rule of thumb that can be kept in mind in regard
to the use
of a crystal:
Chemical composition + form geometry = use
This means that the external form geometry has a direct bearing on
the potential application
of a given crystal to be utilized. After considerable
it was found that the natural
external geometry of quartz was
not adequate to meet its great potential.
PROPERTIES OF THE CRYSTAL
There are various properties that quartz crystals demonstrate that
make them useful.
The most well-known and commonly utilized feature of quartz is
its piezo electric property.
This means that when mechanical pressure is applied
to a crystal, a small electric charge is generated
on its surface due to the
displacement of electrons.
The piezo-electric property of quartz is used frequently to create
igniters for gas stoves
and barbecues. There is a small device built into many
stoves and ovens
that when used will cause
a spark to be generated and the flow
of gas or propane
will be ignited to flame. What is occurring here
is that when
the button of the igniter
is pushed a small piece of quartz inside the unit is
causing a small electrical charge to travel along the surface of he
crystal until it meets a conductor
(usually a tiny metal rod). The charge will
then travel long the conductor, which is pointed at the site
of the glowing gas
or propane. When spark meets fuel,
fire appears. These tiny igniter units can be
purchased at most department or
hardware stores and are inexpensive.
When pressure is applied to quartz an electrical charge is
created. When an electrical charge
is applied to quartz, oscillation or
vibration is created. This vibration can be made audible through
enhancement. These charges flow along the electronic axes of the crystal.
is considered to be anisotropic, meaning that
its properties are different in
In regard to its piezo-electric property, quartz will carry a
charge along its electronic axes,
but will act as an insulator in other
There is a multi-dimensional aspect to the piezo-electric effect also. The
charge generated can cross
a semi-permeable membrane between dimensions. Each
dimension has its own charge threshold
before there is an information transfer
across the membrane. Inter-dimensional doorways or gates
can be activated by
adequate directional charge build up. These dimensional gates or membranes
electro-magnetic-like in nature and within our 3D earth plane are maintained by
the magnetic fields
of the planet. As the magnetic fields of the earth decrease,
as is currently happening, access to
other domains of consciousness, other
dimensions, becomes much easier.
Although this can be done without the use of a
crystal, the added coherency and amplification
offered by the use of a Vogel-cut
crystal, or other precise and appropriate configurations of quartz,
process even easier.
The greater the coherency of the initiating stimulus, the greater will
be the response from the crystal.
It is possible, through various disciplines,
to bring greater coherency to our consciousness
and energy fields. The
application of lasered light has great potential in this area of exploration.
The laser we all have available to us is the Light of an open, balanced
consciousness. It can be channeled
through the head centers that form what is
known as the spiritual triad creating a laser-like force.
Quartz also demonstrates the pyro-electric property. If heat is
applied to a crystal
it will show
a change in vibration and become more
electrical. This makes it useful
for certain types of temperature
This conversion of energy from one form to another (pressure to
electrical, heat to vibration) is called
transduction. Therefore, we can also
say that quartz crystal is an energetic transducer or converter. It has the ability to change energy from one form
A crystal can generate a non ferric magnetic field. This
charge can be transferred
into water and measured
with a gauss meter. Magnetism demonstrates a polarity and this can be seen in
quartz. Adjacent sides are of
opposite charge to each other
as are the two terminations. This dynamic creates
a movement of energy within the crystal that can be controlled by the breath and mind of a user.
When two crystals are rubbed together, a light will be produced within the
crystal. This is best done
by rubbing the prism edge of one crystal with the
prism face of another. The triboluminescent effect
here is being elicited by
friction. The sparks expected of any piezo-electric material may be seen, but in
the dark, a glow within
the crystal will also be visible. This light is called
It is not an electrical phenomenon, but a luminescence, as is
the light emitted from each cell of our body. Luminescence is a cool light, the
type we see in glow worms and fireflies, as opposed to incandescence,
light of a burning filament with which we are familiar within the light bulbs in
Quartz and other crystals have the capacity for information
storage or memory.
According to the September 5, 1994 issue of Newsweek
magazine, Stanford University physicists
have demonstrated the first fully
digital model of a device that stores information as a hologram
subatomic structure of a crystal. The scientists were able to store and retrieve
image of the Mona Lisa. The particular crystal held only 163
kilobytes of memory, but it is expected
that these holographic units could store
up to one million megabits. The short article says that
information in three dimensions and could be ten times faster than the fastest
currently available. It was not mentioned what type of crystal is being
used, but the capacity for
information storage is intrinsic to all crystal,
although some tend to demonstrate this ability better
than do others.
All of these properties can be found in unfaceted quartz. When
formed into a precise geometric and symmetrical tool these abilities can be
harnessed and used in a coherent and meaningful way beyond
what has already been
described. Faceting a crystal, if done properly and with loving intent,
and refines the innate capability of the mineral.
Quartz is electrically neutral and non-conductive. The energetic input necessary
to upset this
precarious neutrality is minimal. This is because the trillions of
lattice sites within the crystal create
a resonant system. Once a critical
number of these lattices are vibrating the entire crystal will respond
resonant oscillation. The input to generate a maximum output is minimal. This is
advantage of a resonant system: minimal input achieves maximum
This is a non-linear effect. If we visualize a series of dominoes
stretching from the West Coast
of the United States to Paris, each imaginary
domino increasing 1% in size from its predecessor,
the size of the final piece
would approximate the size of the Eiffel tower. Knock the first domino over
barely a touch and it would topple the next and the chain reaction begins. Each
knocks over the next, which is 1% largest in size. Imagine the impact of
the final Eiffel tower size structure! The original force put into the system of
dominoes to bring this tower down was only
a slight touch! Minimal input can
result in maximum output.
As a dramatic example of the potential for quartz crystals, beyond
Marcel Vogel told me that he once demonstrated the physical
power of one of his crystals
to convert energy. Although this was done with an
especially faceted Vogel-cut
which will be described later, it is worthy of note at this point.
“I have made electricity with the crystal...up to 75 volts, using
a crystal like this (a Vogel-cut®).
It’s an induced voltage...a DC (direct current) voltage. I put a crystal
middle of a box
(the box was hardwood, mahogany, and six sided or hexagonal)
then I made a coil of copper,
and then silver-tin wire wrapped 250 times. I had
another coil on the outside made of nickel wire.
There were primary and
secondary wires that came out to a voltmeter. I drew my breath in and pulsed
breath and out came voltage from the crystal. I tried it with uncut crystal as
well, but it didn’t work.
“I have the equipment in my lab to make greater voltage, but I
haven’t gone into this.
There is so much else to do and those who saw me do this
became very disturbed.”
Marcel went on to tell me that he had done the same experimental
format and was able to cause
a household light bulb, wired into the circuit, to
How is it
that the crystal is able to do this?
One explanation is the piezo-electric effect already described. The
pressure from the force
of the operators thought impinges upon the crystal
thereby eliciting the piezo effect.
This is dependent upon the intensity and
coherence of the operators mental body.
Although not everyone is capable of
this, it is possible for the skill to be learned. The fundamentals
technique are described in the section on clearing and charging of quartz. Many
individuals using this technique have learned to clear floppy discs and audio
tapes of their magnetically stored
Another perspective on the energetic mechanism of crystalline
substances, quartz in particular, has been put forth by Don Robins in his 1988
book (out of print) The Secret Language of Stone.

the crystal was created by 19th century researchers who were more
interested in fulfilling their ideas
of God’s perfect
universe than in doing
real investigative work. To this end only near perfect specimens
were sampled. Their conclusions were more of a wish-fulfilling fantasy than
science. Today’s technology makes this easier for us. We have X-ray diffraction
to show us the lattice structure of crystals.

Don Robins, the norm in the mineral world is the lattice defect and virtually every
has hidden within it universes of imperfection and virtual energies.
Vacancies reside in precarious
imbalance just waiting for some external hidden
treasures of energy.
One might metaphorically think of these hidden pockets of energy
within the imperfect
lattice structure as the unconscious of the crystal. With a
little coaxing from an external energy source
(heat, light, emotion, sound,
thought, etc.) large amounts of energy can be released that were once
Similarly energy or information can be placed into the
imperfect lattice of the crystal through
the same modalities (heat, light,
sound, emotion, thought, etc.)
Later we will present methods to access ancient information that
may be locked in what appears
to an ordinary and mundane rock or crystal,
faceted or otherwise.
Not only are energies hidden within the vacancies of the crystal,
but also the intrusion of various
substances such as metals (iron, titanium,
manganese, etc.) will alter the electric balance of the crystal
while at the
same time allowing it to maintain electrical neutrality.
Primary, secondary, and tertiary energy emissions from quartz
follow the pattern shown in the diagram
below. The most powerful emission is
form the tip and therefore it is important that the tips of a crystal
Secondary energies will flow from the facets that slope in toward
the tips, and the tertiary energies
radiate from the sides of the crystal.
The energy that is imprinted into a crystal is qualified by the
consciousness of the user.
The thought held in mind as the crystal is programmed
or charged is the qualifying agent.
The primary area of this energy conversion
in the crystal is the body with the tips basically being
entry and exit points.

is called a “pressure bomb”. The iron alloy is
especially treated to make its matrix very dense as the
auto-clave will operate
at pressures ranging from 10,000 pounds per square inch to 40,000 pounds
square inch. The metal is heat and pressure treated to allow it to withstand
The entire apparatus may be put into a larger auto-clave. The
temperature in the outer vessel is raised
to around 35000C
and pressurized to near 60 atmospheres.
This force eliminates any bubbles, voids
or defects. The walls of a small commercial auto-clave are about 3 inches thick
with a crystalline coating created on the inside
of one side of the vessel to
prevent interaction of the metal with the silicon dioxide.
The material used for making synthetic quartz is natural
earth grown quartz, crushed, melted and placed into an autoclave as described
above. There is no discernment used or needed in the material used. It can be
optically clear or completely cloudy. It is all crushed, melted and the
Quartz, when it comes out of the ground, has a pattern of
consciousness still remaining as the crystalline template formed by the
precipitated light that created the crystal form. It is a template of
consciousness. Once crushed and melted this pattern is destroyed. A new one is
formed by the controlled and accelerated growth in the autoclave. It can also be
"doped" with color by adding various chemicals. Blue, green, aqua, and gold are
commonly available. It is a matter of what once wants from a crystal as to
whether or not synthetic is a valuable choice.
None of the information regarding the use of quartz in these
pages refers to synthetic material and, in fact, Marcel Vogel was never able to
replicate any of his results with this material.
As previously mentioned one possible addition to the growth of
is the doping
of the growing crystal with one’s consciousness
so that the crystal might function in exact accordance
with the need of the
user. It is possible to alter the matrix of a growing crystal through the
of thought into the forming quartz.
A QUANTUM CONVERTER
A natural crystal from the earth demonstrates the capacity for
energy conversion, amplification, and transfer. It is,
however, unable to cohere that energy.
This is an important factor if the energy
or information is to be stored or transferred while maintaining
Of equal importance is the fact that no two crystals are the same
and therefore they are incapable
of producing the same precise effects. In the
process of creating a meaningful methodology of healing
it is important that the
results obtained can be replicated by anyone with adequate skill and training.
With the use of unfaceted crystals, these results are similar, but not the same.
It is necessary to facet crystals
into a precise geometric form in order for
them to manifest their greatest potential.
As mentioned previously, unfaceted quartz, by accommodating its
accretes many undesirable secondary vibrations to it. This
creates what might be thought of
as a low signal to noise ratio. Once this
“noise” or the unwanted secondary vibrations are removed there is a high signal
to noise ratio or a clear, clean signal.
Rubies, for example, are faceted to make them useful for laser
applications. Aluminum oxide chromium,
ruby, is a rather unimpressive stone
until it is faceted into a cylinder with Brewster windows so that light
pumped into it and reflected internally so as to produce a coherent light - a
laser. The rubies used
in this technology are synthetic primarily because of
cost and the ability to control the purity of the crystal.
The first shape created by Marcel Vogel was a four-sided bi-pyramidal
In 1974, the pattern for the crystal came to him intuitively, in dream,
without any conscious understanding of the energetics of the form. It took one
year of hard work in the glass shop at IBM for the crystal to be given shape.
Unknowingly Marcel had created a form that was of the same configuration as the
Kabalistic Tree of Life, although the crystal was a three dimensional
representation of this sacred geometry.
Through intuitively guided efforts, an instrument of quartz
crystal was created with which experimental results could be replicated. The
faceted crystal has the ability to cohere energy, unlike its unfaceted
predecessor. These crystals can be duplicated so that multiple crystals can be
tested. Each crystal must, however, meet the exacting specifications. A simple
physical copy of a Vogel-cut®
crystal does not necessarily meet the required standards. This can be determined
through the use of an instrument called the Omega 5. The Omega is described in
detail on page ? Many people have found themselves in possession of an imitation
of a Vogel-cut®
crystal and wondered why it doesn’t function as expected.
Tree of Life
The two ends of the crystal are cut to specific angles. The more
acute end, called the operating tip, is intuitively faceted to be in resonance
with the individual for whom the crystal is being prepared while the more obtuse
tip was initially shaped to have a specific fixed resonance to an aspect of the
earth grid: the Cheops pyramid.
There is a story of three stonecutters preparing the blocks necessary for the
construction of a building. Upon being asked what they were doing, one cutter,
irritated and angry, dissatisfied with his life,
snapped back saying “I’m
cutting rocks here to build whatever it is they’re making! What does it look
like I’m doing”
second worker, preoccupied with making enough money to satisfy all his needs and
wants, responded to the same inquiry saying “I’m making these blocks so that I
can feed and clothe my family, pay the rent and keep up with all the bills I
have. It’s all very hard work!”
third worker happily completed his chiseling, paused, looked up at the
questioner with a smile on his face, and said, “I’ve been allowed to help build
this temple. A place of Light where people can come, worship, and be healed in
the house of their Lord.”
Three individuals all doing the same job, or are they? It is the attitude of the
third cutter, the realization of the great gift of being allowed to participate
in the creation of something that can be of service to humanity that is
to create a true healing instrument. In the creation of the sacred
stones, not only are the needs of others met, but also the needs of the cutter.
In serving others we are served.
crystals are specially tuned quantum converters designed to assist in accessing
and utilizing particular energies. The angles of the tips are critical to
creating an instrument that is in resonance with the water molecule and
individual for whom the crystal is being prepared.
practitioners find the option of having a crystal custom made for them to be
particularly attractive and useful. The name of the practitioner and sometimes
their photograph is used as an energetic witness or focus.
Prior to initiating
the creation of a Vogel®
crystal from the raw material a moment or two is taken to focus on the
individual for whom the crystal is being prepared.
crystals are created from the best quality natural raw quartz available. This
material is sometimes from Siberia, sometimes from Madagascar, and frequently
from Brazil. We strive to use optical quality quartz.
The first stage in the preparation of a healing or meditation crystal is to
create a rough cut on the trim saw. This means that a very rough shape of the
desired finished product is formed using a diamond blade. The crystal at this
point is opaque. The surface of the crystal appears to have a frosting on it.
The direction of the cut is always along the “C” (central) or growth axis of the
crystal. The natural energy flows of the crystal must be respected. If this is
not done the result is a healing piece or medallion that may appear the same as
a genuine Vogel-cut®,
but is much different energetically.
The next task is to take the rough cut crystal to the lapidary wheels lapping
where it is ground with a series of finer and finer grits. This is similar,
although not the same, as the use of finer and finer gradations of sandpaper
used on wood to bring about a smoothe finish when building furniture. All the
work on the “flat laps” is done by hand without the use of any “dop sticks” or
mechanical arms or calibration. It is entirely an intuitive or feeling process.
The lapidary wheels are like large turntables.
This is truly a task of love and meditation. The environment is noisy and cold.
Water must be continually flowing on the lapidary wheels, as the crystal is
faceted in order to prevent the crystal from becoming overheated and cracking or
shattering. The sound of the grinding crystal can be quite hard on sensitive
ears. Frequently earplugs have to be worn. To breathe in the effluvia from the
grinding quartz is hazardous and facemasks are usually worn so that the material
is not inhaled. The same applies to the eyes. Protective glasses or goggles are
finished product is then checked energetically to make sure that it has the
correct energy signature rate indicating its resonance with water. We also check
to ensure that the crystal is appropriate for the individual for whom it was
It is also important that there be no cracks or chips in the surface
of the crystal.
A certain amount of inclusions within the crystal are
acceptable, but this does not include internal fractures or cracks.
Finally, the crystal is treated in a way shown to me by Marcel to install a
particular permanent programming in it so that it can be used only as an
instrument of service.
Often a crystal will get broken for a variety of reasons. Sometimes this is a
result of carelessness, but a crystal can also have the tip flake off or
fracture due to a major shift in the fundamental frequency of the user. A
crystal is designed to precisely fit your energetic field. Should this field
change in a dramatic way it may be necessary to alter the angles of the
terminations of the crystal. Unable to withstand the pressure that may be
created by a field so out of phase with its primary frequency the crystal will
flake off at the tip. This usually happens at the operating tip or more acute
angled termination. Should this happen the crystal needs to be re-tuned or
The faceting process can be thought of as “domesticating” or
teaching the crystal to function in a specific way in order to bring out its
highest potential. The faceting is done as a gift to the crystal, not as an
intrusion or violation. This attitude is critical in the transformation of raw
quartz into a Vogel®
crystal. Since the early days the number of facets on the crystals has been
increased from four sides to six, eight, twelve, thirteen, twenty four, and so.
The greater the number of facets the greater is the potential energetic spin
within the crystal. Each facet is like a mirror from which light can be
reflected. There will be further discussion of this in the chapter on practical
As mentioned, a crystal must be faceted not only with geometric
precision along the “C” or growth axis,
but must also be worked with right
attitude and consciousness. It is not simply a matter of mechanically cutting
the same general shape. I have had some of the best crystal and diamond cutters
in the world from Germany attempt to reproduce the Vogel-cut®
crystals with no success. Despite the similarity of appearance the energetic
measurement of these crystals were not at all the same. The measurement of the
crystals was done with the Omega 5.
these crystals and the findings to Marcel and he laughed saying:
“You see, I’ve told you before that you can go ahead and try to
copy these crystals, but you can’t do it.
Now you know for yourself! There’s
much more involved than just cutting crystals into a certain shape.”
passing in 1991, there have been many copies made of Marcel’s crystals. I have
tested many of the duplicates and found them to be lacking not just physically,
but energetically as well. Each individual, however, must find the crystal that
is appropriate for him or her.
The form geometry of a Vogel cut®
crystal creates a coherent field of energy that can act as a carrier wave of
information whereas raw quartz does not create coherence.
Why is this
“This carrier wave must have a coherency to it so as not to mingle
with the radiation’s emitted from the target material but act now as the
differentiation transport vehicle. The quartz crystal cut in the bi-pyramidal
shape provides such an instrument.”
The light we generally see comes from all directions and
is called incoherent. The definition of incoherent is to come from many
directions. When light is passed through a device such as a laser or crystal it
can be made coherent, or to move in a single direction. In a laser there are two
parallel surfaces and a flash, such as a Zeon flash from a flash lamp on both
sides of the specially cut ruby. The light emitted, or flashed, passes through
the crystal and strikes a window (Brewster window) and bounces back off the
mirrors at the speed of light. It then encounters the light that is just then
being generated and the two amplify each other, building a signal. These two are
now acting as one. As they encounter the mirrors, they are again reflected back,
encounter the source light and again signal amplification occurs. When they
emerge from this process the light is coherent, meaning not scattered. They are
A laser is Light
Amplification by the Stimulated
Emission of Radiation.
Once it begins to lase it will be continual until stopped. The ruby laser is
only one kind of instrument. Light can be further cohered and amplified by using
a different type of crystal.
Schematic of Ruby Laser
This same dynamic happens with as Vogel-cut®
crystal. Our mind is the flash lamp and the quartz crystal replaces the ruby
with mirrored ends. The flash of energy from our mind is reflected back and
forth, between the "mirrored" ends of the crystal, repeatedly encountering
itself, building and coherent signal. This coherent signal is very useful in
penetrating the incoherent information that is an injury or aberration in the
energetic field of an individual.
crystal as Mind Laser
energy input from mind of user reflected between the end facets of the crystal to
build up charge
coherent field emitted from acute angle of crystal
In the case of offering “healing” service to another individual,
the radiation emitted from the target material would refer to the difficulty or
distress experienced by the client. The coherent light emitted from the Vogel®
crystal is able
to penetrate the often-disparate radiant fields within and
around a distressed individual. An incoherent energy is
often dissipated if not
by the chaotic field generated by the distress.
In a Vogel-cut®
crystal the differing angles of the tips create a diode effect with the
one termination to the other. With the field moving
primarily in one direction the energy
of an individual is reflected back to them
through the crystal. By using a Vogel-cut®
crystal a charge separation can occur.
The client’s field does not affect the
“healer”. This is one of the primary benefits
of using a crystal rather than
direct “hands-on” healing.
The movement of energy through the crystal is one way
Beyond this, the most profound effect of the faceted crystal has
to do with its relationship and resonance to water.
A crystal that is faceted
and tuned to the water molecule will hold a charge or information that when
the body of person will link to the H2O molecule. This
charge is stored within the interlattice space of the crystal. As we grow as a
fetus we are about 90% water. As adults, more than
70% of our physical body is water, a Vogel-cut®
crystal, and its resonance to water, is the perfect delivery mechanism for the
introduction of subtle energies to an individual. It was also thought that the
various subtle energy bodies described in metaphysical literature are gradations
of a field that is anchored to the physical body via the water molecule affected
by the information transmitted through the fluidic systems of the body that are
based on structured water.
The crystal is a quantum converter that is able to store and
transmit energy in a form that has discreet biological effects. Our speculation
is that because of the cohering capability of the Vogel-cut®
crystal it can
used to affect “reality” at the quantum or subatomic level. The imprint of
thoughtforms or coding is stored on and within the particles or wave packets at
the quantum level. Electron spin can be altered, which in turn can alter proton
spin, within the nucleus of the atom. This is the means of communicating from and
with the zero point or virtual state. This is most likely a resonant effect and
is discussed in greater detail in relationship to the soul in the chapter
Subtle Energies. The human body, on an energetic level, is an array of
oscillating points that are layered and have a definite symmetry and structure
at both the macro and micro dimensions.
The bones, tissues, cells, and fluids of the body have a definite
The structure of the fluids, cells, and tissues of the body tend
to become unstructured or incoherent when dis-ease or distress is present. The
physical body is comprised of liquid crystal systems in the cell membranes,
intercellular fluids as well as the larger structures such as the fatty tissues,
muscular and nervous systems, lymph, blood, and so on. Through the use of an
appropriately tuned crystal, to which these structures are responsive,
delivering the necessary “information” or energetic nutrients can restore
balance and coherence.
“At least one type of
record I know of is written in bone, namely, bone fractures and injuries. They
can be readily detected, photographed and identified by means of sensing with a
crystal held in the hands of an operator. The field is very analogous to that of
a magnetic domain that is created on magnetic material by a magnetic recording
head. When a magnetic recording is made on tape, there is no change in physical
state, but an orientation of the fields that are emitted from the magnetic bits
of crystal present in the tape takes place, and a field then emits in space from
the surface of the recording tape. This is given the name of a magnetic domain.
When a recording head passes over this surface, a magnetic inductive effect
takes place, a current is created, and a signal is translated into a series of
“When a bone is fractured, or severely depressed, a series of
signals is created and radiates in space in much the same way as a magnetic
domain. These signals, however, will interfere with the normal electrical
activity of the organization of that body in that area if it is not erased and
“When we suffer a fall, a blow to the head, and various impact
injuries, these actions weaken our body and after the normal tissue healing, we
never feel quite the same. It is my belief that the bone stores these vibrations
and a simple act of demagnetizing the body with a bulk eraser or with the use of
a crystal…will clear it of these forces.”
METHODS OF MEASUREMENT: THE
The first difficulty encountered with the Vogel-cut®
crystals was to measure their energetics. It is not enough to observe the
subjective effects. If a meaningful technology that can be used by all is to be
created, there must be a reliable method of measurement to create a base from
which to work.
The milli-gaussmeter measures magnetic fields and is inadequate to
the task. When charged, a crystal demonstrates
a field of 0.07 gauss, but
this is traditionally thought to be insignificant. With the device attached to
alternate facets of
a crystal, one can slowly approach the crystal and notice
the meter indicate a reading of 0.07 gauss. One or two steps and the meter
shows zero. Another one or two steps and the meter again registers 0.07. This is
indicative of the individual encountering the radiant fields of the crystal.
These fields can be visualized as a series of concentric circles. As the
perimeter of each is encountered the milli-gaussmeter shows the contact as 0.07
The charge differential that can be measured using the
milli-gaussmeter is somewhat insignificant in comparison
to the experimental
results observed in various testing procedures that will be described later.
Significant results are obtained despite the rather insignificant amount of
energy measured from the crystal. There must be some other virtually
immeasurable yet powerful energy or force involved either beyond or within the
accepted electro-magnetic spectrum. Robert O. Becker has found, for example,
that weak magnetic fields can have a greater affect on the body than strong
Perhaps there needs to be a rethinking of the nature of magnetism. In a
conversation, Marcel once told me that
it is the magnetic fields that give
matter its form. It precipitates quantum waves into particles or solids.
Magnetic fields may have diffraction phenomena just like light. As with
white light that when passed through
a prism separates into various color-bands,
magnetic fields, when passed through an appropriate medium may separate out into
component parts. Standard instruments of measurement are inadequate to determine
They are also mostly incapable of measuring the fields in and around a
So what can
As was his practice when confronted with difficult situations,
such as this, that took him to the very edge of his rational abilities, Marcel
took the situation into prayer and asked to be shown a way to measure the
faceted crystals that he had recently developed.
Prayers are answered
Six weeks later a man arrived at Marcel’s door with a piece of
equipment and announced that this was the device that was needed to measure the
crystals. Amazed and with childlike glee Marcel asked how to use the instrument.
He was told that he would know!
The instrument was the Omega 1 and since then four other
incarnations of the device have been created with the final version, the Omega 5
being used for much of the fundamental research at Marcel’s lab. We continue to
use this instrument in our research.
According to Marcel, his prayer was heard and the information as
to how to construct the instrument needed was relayed to the inventor of the
Omega while he was in meditation. The two men had met only once very briefly
approximately one year before at a conference and knew each other only by name.
What is the
Rumi Da with Omega 5
Hamburg, Germany, 1990
The Omega 5 is a subjective “radionic” or “psychotronic” type of
instrument that measures subtle energy fields beyond the scope of standard
scientific equipment. In fact, the energies measured are not even acknowledged
by mainstream science although the effects are often clearly visible and
The values or measurement obtained with the Omega 5 are found by
placing the item to be tested in what is known as the witness or sample well.
The second finger of the right hand is used to stroke a flat area on the
instrument called the “stick plate” while the left hand slowly rotates one of
several dials until a “stick” is obtained with the rubbing hand. The stick is a
phenomenon in which the finger rubbing the plate feels as if it is immobilized
or “stuck” on the surface of the designated area of the instrument. This stick
represents a numerical value as shown by the dial being turned. On the Omega 5 a
total of nine dials are used giving a series of three 3-digit rates for the
sample being studied. A pendulum can also be used to detect the correct values.
Both methods utilize the dowsing process. (See chapter on dowsing)
The Omega 5 presents us with a value for:
signature for the information band or identity value of the sample being studied
energetic fields within the sample
energetic fields surrounding or radiating around the sample
This instrument produces a low frequency wave that is transmitted
by an antenna, which has been built into the machine. The operator can choose a
frequency ranging from 2Hz to a 156Hz signal. The second part is a LC circuit
which modulates the signal to different frequencies by using a series o f none
resistors and two capacitors.
The substance to be analyzed is placed in a well.
The well is wound with a pick-up coil, which is then hooked, to the resistors
and capacitors where the modulations take place because of changes in
capacitance. The coil around the well picks up the low Hertz signal from the
The operator changes the capacitance and resistance of the circuit
by turning the potentiometers and then tries to sense the changes in electrical
skin conductivity, which produces the phenomenon of a “stick”. The resonance
that occurs between the pick up coil and the capacitors and resistors produces
the increase in charge, which results in a “stick”. The operator plays an
integral part in the functioning of this system.
A “stick” may be defined as an increase in friction between the
fingers and the sensing areas or rubbing plate.
The rubbing plate is a printed
circuit coil, which has an amplified signal, put through it from the tuned Liquid Crystal circuitry.
The color therapy unit of the Omega 5 transmits frequencies that
are exactly ten octaves below the frequency of each color on the color selector
dial. Octave sub-harmonics are defined by the series: ½, ¼, 1/8,
For the Omega 5, “n” is equal to 10 (the tenth sub-harmonic). Thus the color
frequencies are 1/1024th of the actual frequencies of the seven
colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and indigo).
These energetic fields can be thought of as information. Exactly
what these fields are is open to speculation. It is likely that we are dealing
with information beyond the known electromagnetic spectrum. Subtle energy
researchers have called this an etheric field, a scalar field, non-Hertzian or
zero point energy, or even tachyon field fluctuations. Tachyons are considered
to be theoretical supra-luminal particles. As such they would be either
time reversed or moving in a parallel universe. Frequently the term tachyon is
not used in its strict scientific sense, but in a more generalized way to mean
The “virtual state” is considered to be composed of a number of
forces, which add up to an apparent zero or nothing. Traditionally zero is zero.
In the world of zero point or tachyon energy, the components of zero can be many
and varied. Each of the patterns shown below is different but all sum to a zero
Two or more forces may show as zero and though there are no
noticeable effects, there may be a hidden potential that reflects the
totality of the forces.
-1 +1 = 0; 2 + 3 - 5 = 0; -5 + 6 -1 = 0
Each of these simple equations sums to zero yet each is composed
of different factors. To say that zero adequately reflects the component parts
is to ignore the numbers. Replace each number with a force and you can see that
zero energy may contain forces that are more than the sum of its parts.
Each of these patterns of force may sum to zero, but this does not
mean that the potential inherent in each force vector is not real. Should there
be any imbalance created in the potentials there will arise observable effects. If you were to press your hands against each other in front of your
chest, with equal force, you would find that one hand pressing against the other
creates a situation of no movement. To an observer it seems that there is not
enough force to cause one hand or the other to move. Despite this appearance you
can readily feel the energy being expended to maintain this equilibrium. It is
Conventional electro-magnetic theory does not regard potential as
real. Only the field is considered to be real.
Potential is normally considered
only in terms of its observable manifestation and isn’t seen as being actual in
In zero point theory the potential is regarded as an emptiness
or void that has its own innate reality and is pregnant with real
potential even though there appears to be a zero force. This potential is
known as the virtual state. Zero point energy can be considered to be
potential without any manifestation or observable effect. It is, however,
available as an energetic reservoir when the “right” conditions are presented.
state is a field of probability. All the observable effects we see, such as
light, electricity, gravitation, magnetic fields and so on, are a consequence of
variations in the virtual state. It is the ground of our Being from which all
manifests David Bohm has called the implicate order. Coherent thought can be
enough to precipitate manifestation from the virtual state. It can bring forth a
particle from the field or create a movement from the implicate to the
The external fields generated by the mind can cause an acceleration of
the electrons around the body resulting in a force that is potentially strong
enough to access the implicate order. When linked to the amplifying and cohering
capability of an appropriate crystal the mind’s ability to influence becomes
even greater. We can learn to consciously precipitate reality from the virtual
state. As we release our fear it becomes possible for us to integrate higher and
higher dimensional aspects of Self into the physical body. A crystal can
function as a bridging device in this regard.
The Buddha described the virtual state in the Heart Sutra:
is emptiness and emptiness is form.
Every second, our physical reality is being created. Quantum
physics tells us that reality exists as an energetic wave until we focus upon it
with intent (albeit usually unconscious) and precipitate wave into particle.
The virtual state is the energetic blueprint of all manifestation.
atmosphere or ambience of a place is the consequence of the encoding of virtual
state patterns. These could be forces, intents, and emotions that have been
present in the particular location. This state is often perceived psychically.
It is information that exists both in and out of time. The combination of
forces in a location or substance builds a series of patterns or codes that
characterize or identify that item. These forces, when manifest, are
intrinsic data fields that exist in and around all form and they contain the
data or information that makes a particular form what it is. There is a rhythmic
nature to these fields. They will expand and contract in accordance with their
relationship to external influences. If these data fields are altered so too is
the form that they support.
Zero point energy can be precipitated by mechanical and
electro-magnetic stress. When we release stress that is inherent in emptiness we
create a loss of potential which will produce some effect on the physical plane.
The cause of this stress release can be within the physical plane itself or
existing on some other dimension or consciousness domain. The virtual state
manifests from the higher to lower, from the inner to the outer. It is a type of
step down process that happens from second to second.
For the most part our participation in this process of
precipitation tends to be unconscious. Most of us are sleepwalkers unconsciously
creating and experiencing our world. But the sleeper can awaken and the virtual
state can be consciously accessed. Form can be made emptiness and emptiness can
be made form.
Anything that can transform electro-magnetic energy into zero
point energy or vice versa is called a translator. A stressed crystal might
function as such a translator.
In this case the crystal is a scalar wave resonator. In other words, it
is able to resonate with the virtual state or intrinsic data fields that exist
with and beyond our 3D environment. It is imperative that such a crystal be very
precisely faceted or tuned in both physical and non-physical terms. The
substructure or lattice of the crystal can be mentally programmed to contain and
act upon specific information. One might be able to access the virtual or
quantum state and phase shift a probable reality into a three dimensional
actuality. Any third dimensional gain is balanced by the release of stress and
the loss or decrease in potential of the virtual state. Materialization and
de-materialization become reality.
It should be noted that it is only from our third dimensional
perspective that unseen events or objects are potential. From higher dimensional
perspectives there is an entire alive and vibrant reality going on.
inability to perceive higher frequency worlds does not mean that do not already
exist. They simply
have no three dimensional existence. We are entranced by the
manifest three-dimensional reality that we can observe with our five senses.
Reality may be bigger than these senses can perceive, but it is not bigger than
we are. We are reality even though we avoid or ignore most of Who we are.
An ability to manifest from the virtual state may be not so much an act
of creativity as an act of translation. Patterns of disease are coded at this
potential level and can be detected as well as broadcast.
A crystal can be
mentally programmed to store information at this level.
Essentially, our nervous system is scalar in nature. This is one of the
foundations of healing modalities such as cranial-sacral therapy and other
methods that work with the cranial wave or the flow of cerebro-spinal fluid. As
mentioned, the nervous system functions as a scalar generator and detector as
does the entire planet. We are always already in resonance with planet earth and
any healing that happens to each
or all of us happens to the planet.
One can think of this energy more simply as Life Energy. We can
call it an information band or intrinsic data field,
as they are energetic codes
that surround a substance and can be used to identify that substance in much the
same way that the periodic table is used to identify chemical elements. As
nothing is static,
the information band is a composite of the various energetic
light codes that surround and penetrate any given form. The information or
intrinsic data that is contained in this band affects the physical form it
surrounds. Indeed the physical form is precipitate of these light codes as
described previously in the growth of a crystal. We are a higher dimensional
precipitate. Rather than being a body that has a soul, we are a soul that has
created a body from the genetic information provided by each parent. The
implications of this are profound.
The data obtained with any radionic type of device is to be used
as a guideline for standard physical testing as well as indicating physical
plane correlates that could be found through testing that utilized standard
scientific equipment such as spectro- photometry, photomicrography, and so on.
It has been discovered that the signature value for the Vogel-cut®
crystals is 454. This is the same fundamental
value found for pure water. This
is a basic and fundamentally important discovery. The numbers 454 represent the
intrinsic data fields or information band of both water and Vogel-cut®
crystals. Unfaceted quartz does not show this value.
The stories of water being transformed by placing a small
into a gallon of drinking water are often greatly exaggerated.
of virtually any foreign substance into water changes its
taste. Subjecting the water
to the rigors of scientific testing reveals no
physical changes whatsoever.
It may be that there are non-physical changes in
the water, but this is not usually what the proponents of these ideas are
telling us. I am speaking here of three-dimensional chemical changes.
Even though science does not offer answers to all, it can be a
good place to begin. With no basic foundation it is very easy to simply spin
fantasies that have no basis
in this reality. It is possible, however, to
transform water and other fluidic mediums through the use of crystals. But how?
In magnetics, when a current is applied to a straight length of
wire virtually no field is induced.
A current is a flow of electrons through the
wire. Coil the wire, however, and a field can be detected.
If the spacing
between each turn is correct the field will be amplified.
Similarly with water, if there is a flow of water through a
straight length of Pyrex tubing no field is generated.
Coil this tubing with the
appropriate spacing and a field is induced. This field measures 0.07 gauss.
the water is pumped through a coil surrounding a charged Vogel-cut®
crystal the water becomes
a permanent magnet while still remaining fluid. A
magnetic moment is stored in the water that remains after the water stops
This field can be erased with a bulk demagnetizer, just like magnetic
The primary discovery about the Vogel-cut®
crystal was its resonance with the water molecule. It was found that
distilled water, with a minute amount of silica added, was passed through a
Pyrex glass tube surrounding an appropriately charged Vogel®
crystal, the water would be altered at the molecular level. Normally,
water has an amorphous molecular pattern. The arrangement of molecules is
random. After having been spun around a charged Vogel®
crystal a variety of changes were be noted:
1. A significant number of molecules become aligned into a systematic and repeating
(this is the
definition of a crystal);
surface tension of the water decreased;
3. Two new bands of light appear: one in the ultra-violet and the other in the
infra-red part of the light spectrum (indicating a stretching of the molecular
bonding producing more energy);
4. 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?
As we know, water consists of one oxygen atom and two hydrogen
atoms that are held together in a covalent bond. This is an actual physical
force, much like gravity, or magnetism that holds these atoms together.
Structured water can be thought of as water that has a greater
degree of bonding between adjacent water molecules than does unstructured or
bulk water. Structured water also forms a crystalline-like structure consisting
of elongated chains of molecules that can be differentiated from the surrounding
water molecules by qualities that are consistent with qualities found in liquid
crystals such as increased birefringence and
a lowering of the freezing point.
In the structured state water molecules have an angular, geometrical
alignment. Quartz crystals also show this state but as a permanent solid state
rather than a transitional semi-solid condition. 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 110 degrees. The
normal flat hexagonal pattern formed by the bonding of tetrahedra has angles of
120 degrees. Water molecules with smaller angles, if they are to be formed into
a hexagon, must have an uneven structure that is not in a flat plane, but
instead is three-dimensional. This uneven structure is formed by what is called
the angle of tilt. This angle can be between 20 degrees and 60 degrees, but the
most common angle is 26 degrees. 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 54 degrees. This 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 ½ of the angle of the tip of the crystal. The interlattice
angle of quartz is 90 degrees minus the basal angle, which is 38 degrees.
Therefore the interlattice angle is 52 degrees. This is also the angle of the
base of the Cheops pyramid.
The bonding angle between molecules for water is about 1040.
This is the angle that exists between the hydrogen atoms of each water molecule.
It is virtually double that of the interlattice angle for quartz.
It is possible that there is a compatible harmonic between water
and quartz because of the similarity 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 of
this structure based resonant transfer.
The geometry produces frequency patterns
and harmonics that can transfer into water. Very small amounts of energy are
required for this transfer. The nature of resonant systems is such that a
minimal input can achieve a maximal output.
Resonance transfer occurs because the waveforms coming out of two
or more vibrating substances having nearly the same waveform. In this case H2O
and SiO2. The phase relationships of a resonating system can be
terms of the angular separation that exists between adjacent
molecules. In water, the six molecules that form one hexagonal ring, when in
resonance, will vibrate or broadcast its energy on a wave that has a particular
frequency. The first molecule will vibrate influencing the second molecule; the
second will affect the third, and so on. The time intervals between successive
broadcasts will result in a phase delay, which can be converted into a phase
angle. Successive waves coming from an oscillating system have successive phase
angles that equal the angular separation that exists between members of the
system. The phase angle within the vibrating ring of water molecules is 60
degrees (a ring or circle of 360 degrees divided by 6). If there were 7 molecules in the ring, the unevenness described previously, the phase angle
would be 360/7 or 51.43 degrees. This is the principal phase angle of quartz.
Most of the internal angles of water and quartz are either fractions or
multiples of this angle.
It is the interlattice resonance between the quartz microstate and
the lyotropic mesophase that is the determining factor in the formation of the
lyotropic mesophase in water. It is the reason that water can be structured by
it around a Vogel
quartz crystal. It does not require large amounts of energy to accomplish
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. 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 the interlattice resonance
between quartz and water that is the
I believe it is the cohering ability of
crystal that allows this. We are dealing with very subtle energies and the form
geometry of raw quartz is insufficient
to generate a charge capable of affecting
a charge transfer. It is the extra “boost” of the coherence of the Vogel
that allows the transfer. Although there may be an internal resonance
between raw quartz and water, 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 unfaceted quartz crystal
there is much distortion and a lack of coherence in the signal or information
that is being attempted to be transferred. This noise is removed in the faceting
process of the Vogel
crystal creating a high signal to noise ratio.
In the structuring of water and wines the question is whether
there is a field created in space when the water is 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
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 the crystal and the coil.
The temperature was kept at 70 degrees F with the chamber sealed.
For each pass around the crystal, a sample was taken for an
analysis with the Omega 5, a sample was taken for pH and conductivity
measurements, and a sample was taken for infrared and ultra-violet
The results of these experiments showed that:
spinning in a coil generates a weak, but measurable field (0.07 milli-gauss)
crystals can be charged with “information” and tuned to the fields generated by
charge is required for “information transfer” to occur (i.e. 1-4 passes around
of passes can be modified by the programming of the crystals
program transfer is a resonance transfer with no loss in the original program
after hundreds of experiments have been done with the system
made to be a permanent magnet. This field remains constant after the water stops
spinning and can be removed by the application of a bulk demagnetizer.
The basic changes noted in water after being spun around an
appropriately charged Vogel-cut
crystal were as follows:
appearance of two new bands of light in the infrared and ultra-violet parts of
the spectrum indicating a stretching of the molecular bonding in the water. This
is indicative of more energy and new information in the water.
conductivity of the water increases
the pH of
the water can be altered up to 3 points, an increase in acidity or alkalinity
freezing point of the water could drop to as much as -30 degrees C
significant number of the molecules become aligned in micro-clusters or
molecular chains; orderly, systematic, and repeating patterns. The water has
become a liquid crystal system capable of storing information.
According to Marcel:
“This structuring is best assayed with a UV spectrophotometer
where one finds an increase in UV absorption due to
an increase in the water
bonding from the water forming chains on itself. The magnetic moment of this
is increased by 0.07 gauss and there is also an increase in the
pH and dielectric conductivity. Boiling of the water after structuring shows no
change in the UV spectrum, so one can conclude that a permanent chemical change
has taken place. When a drop of this structured silica water is dried on a slide
and compared with untreated silica water, the photomicrographs show the
formation of needle-like silica crystals in the structured water drop while the
untreated water dried to an amorphous mass of silica gel. This shows that the
process of structuring water produces a structuring or ordering effect on the
solutes in solution”.
The practical application of this includes agriculture, and the
preservation of foods, as well as potential uses for healing. The energetic
patterns of fertilizing agents can be stored in a crystal and then transferred
The water is then used to nourish the plants being grown. We have
found in small-scale experimentation that plants treated in this way show
significant growth increase when compared to untreated specimens.
This is not simply a matter of creating water that has been
“charged”, but of creating a fluidic medium capable of storing information, i.e.
water with memory.
field experimentation was done to test the application of this process in the
treatment of wines.
At the Sycamore Creek Vineyards in California, a treatment
unit with crystal was put in place between the wine holding tanks and the
filtering unit. The crystal was charged with a program pertaining to the
specific type of grape that was being used for the wine production. The overall
intent was to bring the wine to its greatest potential in regard to taste, body,
bouquet, and so on. The wine could be altered to whatever parameters were set by
the programmer within the possibilities of the grapes being used. During the
years of experimentation the “crystal treated” wine won several prizes and was
lauded by both wine producers and critics alike.
Industrial Type Device
similar to processing unit used at Sycamore Creek Vineyards
from Dan Willis (Dreamhill Research)
In 1988 I conducted an experiment at the Psychic Research Lab in
San Jose, CA in which I was able to successfully transform a new 1988 Sauvignon
Blanc to be the same as an award winning 1986 Sauvignon Blanc.
This was the basic procedure:
I took a sample of the 1986 wine and measured it on the Omega 5.
Once I had determined the energetics of the 1986 wine I transferred
this information into an 8-sided double terminated Vogel-cut®
crystal. The Omega 5 affects this transfer. I then took the crystal and placed
it in our structuring unit. The next step was to take the 1988 Sauvignon Blanc
and pour it through the unit so that it spun around the programmed crystal. The
result was not only a 1988 wine that had the same taste, body, bouquet, and
appearance of the award winning 1986, but also a 1988 wine that also measured
out as being the same as the ‘86 according to the Omega.
My effort was only one of many times that this procedure was replicated
How does this happen?
1) A Vogel-cut®
crystal tuned to water is programmed with information so that a wine will
be brought to completion with all of the reactions that are potential in its chemistry.
2) The wine is then spun around the crystal 1 - 5 times (1x - 5x.)
3) The wine is the measured with the Omega 5 after each spin.
4) A decision is made as to which wine is best.
5) Information is transferred to a master crystal and the wine is run
When the information becomes critical (at 4x), an abrupt change in
the state of the wine takes place in much the manner as we have seen with the
I believe we are seeing in the wine a critical transfer of
information which can then cause abrupt changes in the chemistry of the system.”

found that we can transfer a program from a laboratory unit to a larger
industrial unit and then treat the wine in line with no loss of speed for the
bottling operation. The filtering of the wine or the bottling apparatus did not
dissipate the structuring that we achieved in the winery. We found that the
structured wine is more resistant to rapid breakdown when exposed to the
atmosphere and will hold its flavor for extended periods of time.”
The experiments with wine and water have also been replicated with
fruit juices and milk as well. These juice experiments were done by Marcel Vogel
and Dr. Brian O'Leary. In the case of
the juice (orange) the results were
Seven cups of orange juice were used in this experiment. One was
put aside as a control and the others contained juice that had been spun around
crystal varying number of times (as with the wine described above). Sample one
passed around the crystal once, sample two passed around the crystal twice,
sample three, three times and so on up to seven. With the exception of the
control cup each was then injected with mold. The following results were
observed after one month:
Control: completely moldy and slimy
Cup 1: very similar to control
Cup 2: slightly less mold than cup 1
Cup 3: even less mold than cup 2
Cup 4: somewhat dark but no growth of mold at all
Cup 5: somewhat dark and extensive mold growth
Cup 6: extensive mold growth
The results discovered here are in keeping with the observations
in the wine and water experiments.
The fourth pass around the crystal seemed to
be the most effective in regard to information transfer and attaining
optimal results. Prior to the fourth pass there seemed to be insufficient
information transferred to the wine,
water, or juice, and after the fourth pass
there appeared to be an excess of information. Once the optimal level of
energetic transfer was achieved a rapid breakdown or degeneration occurred in
the medium being used exceeding
even that of the control sample.
The peak value, as mentioned, was usually at the fourth pass
around the crystal can be measured with
Omega 5. This value can then be
transferred into the crystal and only one pass around the crystal will
This situation of information overload is similar to one learning
from books or classes. There comes a point when one is unable to absorb more
information and still have effective comprehension of what was learned. Prior to
this point one is still able to comprehend but may not be stimulated
sufficiently to activate one’s full learning capacity. Good educators are well
aware of this dynamic.
What has possibly been created then is a situation in which
various fluidic mediums could be said to have memory, a long time contention of
homeopaths. Form is memory. This dynamic does not apply only
to fluids. Gases
could also easy be spun through such an apparatus. There are those who are
currently experimenting in this way with rare earth gases. The results of these
tests are still yet unknown.
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
It has been
discovered that a crystal can store and transfer the energetic pattern of any
For example, in 1990 Marcel conducted an experiment in this
regard and wrote the following:
“Essence chemistry may be defined as the radiation that each solid emits
personifying the characteristic patterns
of its form and the chemical activity
“To affect this type of chemistry, a CARRIER WAVE is required to transport these
“This carrier wave must have a coherency to it so as not to mingle with the
radiation emitted from the target material but act as a differentiating
transport vehicle. The quartz crystal cut in the dipyramidal shape provides such
“The radiation is etheric (the substance from which all matter evolves). The
primary source is a living being - preferably human. Breath control is the
means of evoking this change.
“The radiation penetrates through the crystal from the fingertip. The next stage
is a vibratory oscillation, which
builds a coherent field of energy. A sample
placed in the point of focus of the radiation will transfer its radiational
field to the primary field and the two will be carried out from the tip of the

“By this means a treatment can be affected in the body of a human being with
none of the normal side effects.
The treatment can be implanted with a device of
this type. The treatment can be removed with a similar device.
“In October of 1982, in the home of a clinical psychologist, an experiment of
this type was done. The substance
used was a Quaalude tablet, which is a type of
relaxant or sleeping pill.
“The forms of treatment were done using first a four sided double terminated
quartz crystal with a hole drilled in it
for a specimen of the pill; and second,
a four sided double terminated quartz crystal with no hole cut into it.
“I began by placing a microscopic fragment of the Quaalude in the cavity of the
crystal, which was made especially
for this type of experiment. I took a
fragment into my mouth to experience, at a subtle level, the vibration.
“The top of the crystal was then wet with spittle over the hole and the index
finger positioned on the spot. The right hand was used.
“The entry site in the subject was the chest at a point between the shoulders
and five inches down from the throat (the witness or thymus area). The crystal
was held at about two inches from the body and held steady and slowly rotated
until a vibration was felt in my left hand being used as a sensor.
“At that moment I pulsed my breath and, in my mind’s eye, saw lights flashing.
They were colored bluish green and were streaming out from the top.
“My left hand was opposing the crystal over the subject’s right shoulder. When I
saw these flashing lights,
a pulsation was experienced in my left hand. The
subject’s body immediately relaxed, his eyes were closed and I asked
him what he
was experiencing. He responded that he was sleepy.
“I then asked him if this was similar to what he would normally experience. He
replied that it was, although weaker.
“The normal healing crystal, without the inserted cavity, was then used and a
treat was again given. This time I saw no lights but the subject experienced
flashing lights in his mind. Now he showed deep euphoria, his eyes closed and he
“I sat down for five minutes next to him to observe. There was no movement in
his body. The healing crystal was
then cleaned, cleared, and applied to the same
area, my breath withdrawn, pulsed and cleared.
“Immediately the subject opened his eyes and before he went to bed, commented
that the experience was the same
as if he had taken a tablet orally.”
