Archipielago

Archipielago

The Galapagos Islands emerged from the bottom of the sea in the form of astonishing volcanic upheavals. All in all, the archipelago consists of 19 islands and dozens of islets and rocks that dot a vast area of 17,000 square miles (45,000 square kilometers) of ocean. Thanks to a lack of natural predators, wildlife in the Galapagos has no fear of humans, making the islands one of the world’s greatest wonders and an incredibly magical destination to visit.

Blue Footed Booby

Blue Footed Booby

The blue-footed booby is native to the tropical regions of the Pacific Ocean and is part of the six species of boobies. There are about six thousand blue-footed boobies in the Galapagos, typically nesting on the rocky shores and cliffs of the islands. Half of the world’s population live in the archipelago.

The blue color of the blue-footed booby's webbed feet comes from carotenoid pigments obtained from its diet of fresh fish. Carotenoids act as antioxidants and stimulants for the blue-footed booby's immune function, suggesting that carotenoid pigmentation is an indicator of an individual's immunological state.

Galapagos Sharks

Galapagos Sharks

Sharks play an important role in the ecosystem by maintaining the species below them in the food chain and serving as an indicator for ocean health. They help remove the weak and the sick as well as keeping the balance with competitors helping to ensure species diversity.

The Sharks species found inside the Galapagos Marine Reserve, are Hammerhead, Galapagos Sharks, Tiger Sharks, Galapagos Blacktips, Galapagos Whitetips reef Sharks, Whale Sharks. 

 

Giant Turtle

Giant Turtle

The Galápagos tortoises are native to seven of the Galápagos Islands. With lifespans in the wild of over 100 years, it is one of the longest-lived vertebrades. A captive individual lived at least 170 years. Spanish explorers, who discovered the islands in the 16th century, named them after the Spanish GALAPAGO  meaning Giant Turtle.

Gold 750 Iguana

Gold 750 Iguana

The marine iguana is the only lizard in the world with the ability to live and forage at sea and is endemic to the Galapagos Archipelago.

Marine iguanas are not a very agile species on land, but they are excellent swimmers - moving easily through the water as they feed on algae. Larger individuals go further out to sea and use their powerful claws to grip on to rocks in strong currents to feed, whilst the smaller ones stay inshore near rock pools, feeding on algae exposed at low tide. Due to the high concentration of salt in their diet, marine iguanas filter their blood at the nose and sneeze out the excess salt, often forming salt crystals on the snout.

Gold 750 Ray

Gold 750 Sea Star

Gold 750 Sea Star

Sea star habitats are highly variable; these animals can be found in all ocean basins of the world and at a large assortment of depths and bottom composition. They are benthic animals, which means that they live on the ocean floor whether they are in deep or shallow water.

Gold 750 Sea Turtle

Gold 750 Sea Turtle

The Galapagos green turtle is only commonly seen in a few places in the world, including Galapagos.

Gold 750 Volcanic Lava

Gold 750 Volcanic Lava

Lava Stone is a grounding stone that strengthens one's connection to Mother Earth.

  •  The lava stone is typically like other healing gemstones, should be worn as close to the skin as possible. This allows better absorption, giving it easier access so that the energy can clearly flow. Mostly worn as a bracelet or placed in a room where the balanced energy can clear negative emotions.
  • Lava Stone is essentially a rock with super powers. The stability a Lava Stone gives is synonymous with anxiety relief, a trait we all look for among our spiritual “gadgets”.
  • Emotional healing properties - Because of the grounding qualities of the Lava, it calms the emotions with intense energy.
  • Spiritual healing properties - The Lava Stone is grounding and stabilizing and is strongly connected to the earth as it comes from the Earth’s center.

Volcanic Lava

Volcanic Lava

Lava stone has the ultimate before-and-after, transformation story. Once, it was volcanic magma, leading a tumultuous and never stationary life. As it rose toward the surface, its fiery disposition cooled, and it became a source of stability and support for much of Earth's surface and ocean basins.
The inspirational journey Lava stone takes toward the Earth's surface bestows it with an energy that is both intense and soothing. As an energetically absorbent stone, it removes negative energy and stagnant emotions that block your energy from circulating. It is thought of as a stone of courage and stability. Meditate with a Lava stone to ground yourself in the energy of transformation.
Not all changes in life have to include a complete metamorphosis. Maybe you just need a little more consistency when it comes to healthy choices. You can connect to the energy of Lava stone to shift your mentality. With the calm, goal-oriented focus that this mighty stone lends, you'll feel encouraged to keep pursuing positive progress. Even when you slip backward in your behaviors, Lava stone will provide you the emotional support you need to get right back into your motivated mindset.
