3D Crystal Photo- Intro

Photo crystals are laser etched images into a crystal block. They can be done from any photo of yourself, of someone you know, of a place, building or pretty much anything you require. When you order a photo crystal, you simply need to provide the manufacturer with a high quality photo. Then this photo is lased into a crystal. Usually, when you provide the manufacturer with a photo, it has to be well illuminated, high resolution and contain no blurring. It can have as many details, or people as you wish, but it has to be a high quality photo for the process to work well. Have a look at 3D Crystal Photo.

After you send the photo, it is converted into a high-quality ready to laser file using specialized software. The brightness and contrast will be optimized to ensure a good quality laser etching. The image can be resized or altered if you specify this, and also captions can be added to the photo for further personalization.

The etching itself, sometimes called vitrography is the process by which the photo is “printed” onto the crystal surface using concentrated lasers. The technician which handles this process has to program the etching machine to select several depth points if the crystal is to contain a 3D image in it.

The advantage of a photo crystal should be pretty clear. Crystal can stand the test of time quite well, so your photo will remain immortalized for years to come and cannot be subjected to decay. The only real thing you have to worry about is cleaning the crystal every once in a while from dust and particles, and make sure to place it somewhere where it won’t likely fall and shatter as crystal is really likely to break if subjected to mechanical shocks.

If you opt for a 2D photo crystal, then you’ll receive a picture trapped into a block of crystal that can bring back a special moment in your life. These pictures are immortalized by subsurface engraving into high quality optical crystal, and the finished product is something you will gladly give as a gift as it can be quite mesmerizing.
