Crystal wands are recognised as valuable healing tools. Traditionally, healing energy is directed through the wand, the tip of the crystal serves to focus that energy into a tight beam. In this way wands are used as a metaphoric surgical tool to cut energy blockages out of the body or auric field; often working over the Chakras (energy centers of the body) but one can also work directly over any area of the body.
Marcel Vocal (1917-1991) was a famous Lapiday (stone cutter) who developed lots of new ‘cuts’, many of which took on his name. Vogal wands are muti-faceted and very precisely cut, working with multiples of 7. So they have 7,14, or 21, or 28 sides. These special cuts incorporate the principles of sacred geometry and are said to bring addition qualities to the crystal. Cutting and polishing a gemstone with so many facets is very labor intensive and adds to the beauty and end value of the stone.
