As a spirit animal the scorpion can at first seem a little foreboding, though a deeper look brings a beauty and complexity. This symbol of protection and self preservation inspires fiery passion, calculation and control. A magnificent creature to behold, the scorpion is a creature of solitude and is associated with the sun. It reminds us to ask what needs protecting but also warns against being defensive or overprotective.
Animal totem stones (or spirit stones) can be chosen based on a favourite animal or attraction to a particular symbol. Animal totems can be used to get in touch with specific qualities of the chosen power animal for guidance and inspiration. As life changes, so may your totem animal.
These assorted semi-precious stones and their carved figures have been used as symbols of power and expression for ages.
