Totem Crystals

Info from Enoch Alissandro

Totem crystals are a system of identifying crystal formations and attributes. Everything in our planetary system is interconnected. The various parts of the Earth Mother are connected with the animal species on our planet. We refer to them as totems. The nine totems that follow are the primary crystals that make up the Earth’s crystal population. They are paired together with their animal counterpart, and their totem direction for the Earth. They are the building blocks that all the other totem crystals are founded on.

Moose – Point
Weasel – Citrine
