Spirit Stones

Spirit <a href=Stone Photo" src="http://karlmarx.leadhoster.com/images/spiritcaribou.jpg" width="275" height="166"> Animal spirits play an important role in traditional northern culture. Land animals are protectors, sky creatures embody spirituality and wisdom and water creatures are healers. The bearer of a Spirit Stone uses the qualities of the spirit to create balance in their own lives.
