HI thank you for your question. this raises some interesting questions of law.
Photographs are copyright and the copyright vests in the photographer ( or his assignee). However a photograph of something that is itself subject to copyright is a copy and an infringement of the underlying copyright.

So for example there is not to stop you from taking a photograph of n out of copyright painting or a famous building and creating a 3d image but both the images on a Facebook page and the page itself will be copyright the creator so you will be infringing their copyright so no I do no believe you can sell the created crystal.

If you give me a sample page I can look further but that is my current advice
