Topaz Panina Meow Meow
Sparkle Team mascot

Topaz has excellent cuteness skills & helps inspire Hibiscus Moon as she works by just being present. It’s quite a job! She effectively communicates with others using only body language & purring along with the occasional meow.

Topaz has her own crystal wardrobe of charms, but usually favors wearing her Tiger’s Eye pendant on her collar.

Amethyst (bet you thought it was Topaz)

Helps heal lower back spasms by laying on top of a mini BioMat (filled with amethyst) over the lower back & purring loudly. Quite an effective healer, this kitty!

Crystal Automation and Systems Expert

Making sure that all the planets aligns behind the scenes, Ryan is our automation and systems expert. You will likely never see or talk to him, but he helps to make sure you get everything you are supposed to get, when you are supposed to get it. Except for a few times a year when Mercury Retrogrades wrecks havoc on our crystal alignment.

When he is not mapping out flow charts and scheduling sequences with country music rocking through his headphone, you will find Ryan playing golf or drinking a beautiful Pinot Noir in the Central Coast of California. Ryan is dad to a 15 month old little boy who can already swing a golf club, however they named him Cooper because Tiger was already taken. Look out Augusta, 2032 would make Coop the youngest Masters Champion ever.
