Go to,
they have some highlevel description and
a US office that sales turnkey solution for
making personal 3D image in crystal.
The technology is called subsurface laser engraving

Apparently this is a german process uses YiAG(?) laser to excite the
lead molecules of the crystal -- some one else can elaborate on the
details here ... but apparently these machines are all over the place in
Vegas casinos and even in malls in Phoenix area.
My student had gone to vegas for his 21st b'day and brought back this
piece of crustal (3inx3in) that cost him 85$. There is a face scanner
hooked up to the rig some how. I have not personally seen this. Try this

I recently saw a three dimensional model inside of crystal (or glass)
which was made with a laser. Does anyone have detailed information on
this process?
