Marine Mammal Center


Purchase Philanthropy Stone Here!

The month of August begins in the sign of Leo, infusing compassion, joy and playful energy into the space, and comes to a close in the sign of Virgo. A mutable earth sign, Virgo is associated with working with animals, acts of service and daily routines centered around health and wellness. The pure, radiant healing energy of Virgo season can be an inspiring time to stimulate patterns of practical, positive change!

We would like to send a heart-felt thank you to each member of the Crystal Council Family that has contributed to our monthly philanthropic focus! Selecting an organization to celebrate and feature each month is one of our favorite ways to spread the love. This month we were inspired by the amazing Marine Mammal Center, which has rescued more than 24,000 marine animals along 600 miles of California coastline and the big island of Hawai'i since 1975! The Marine Mammal Center's focuses include animal care, research, education and expanding volunteer efforts. Currently, there are more than 1,300 volunteers assisting and supporting the Marine Mammal Center. Animal care efforts include responding to animals in distress, treating sick and injured animals, rehabilitating animals and releasing them back to their ocean home.

The Marine Mammal Center's team of veterinary experts are constantly striving to improve marine mammal care and rehabilitation, while also broadening knowledge of the ocean's ecosystem. Vital research recently released by the Marine Mammal Center's team of scientists include information relating to seasonal movement patterns and habitat use of striped bass, fetal mercury concentration in harbor seals, and the analyzation of stress and reproductive steroid hormones in gray and fin whales. We also love that the Marine Mammal Center offers education resources for teachers, as well as guided tours. Volunteers can select from five locations to browse available opportunities, and there is even a youth volunteer program called Youth Crew for students ages 15-18!

This August we are featuring Aquamarine, a stone ruled by the moon that was said to protect sailors at sea. This stone deepens meditations, aligns all chakras and shields the aura from negative energy and outside influence. Aquamarine creates flow within the throat chakra, and is helpful for those with a healing intention focused on the throat, jaw, teeth, swollen glands, thyroid, pituitary gland, hormones, eyes, stomach and immune system. This stone is beneficial for enhancing the third eye chakra, visualization, expanding conscious awareness and observing emotions in a constructive, revolutionary way. Aquamarine alleviates stress, fear-based thinking, dissipates overwhelming thoughts, and increases mental clarity and awareness. Release limiting beliefs and create space for possibilities and positive change with Aquamarine! 100% of the proceeds from the purchase of Aquamarine this August will go to the Marine Mammal Center.
