This is a carved Peruvian DOLOMITE Alligator totem. Shown next to a US quarter coin for size comparison. Lovely details on this one! It has a grey background coloring with little accents of tan, cream, and black in interesting patterns throughout.
Peruvian Dolomite's massive form is famous for interesting coloration and patterns. The exact coloring depends on what traces of metals or minerals are mixed into the Dolomite. Dolomite is quite a soft stone, and so it is an industry standard to seal it with a clear coat to help increase hardness and durability.
It has a few tiny organic spots here and there from the edges of inclusions that were close to the surface as the stone was polished. ALL inclusions present come from 100% natural parts of the stone. Check out how it works with subtle energies below!
It weighs about 1.6oz (light for the size because of the stone) and measures approx. 3 1/4" inches long X 7/8" inch tall. Code-3622
As a totem animal, the Alligator is strongly connected to fierce primal energies, but also knowledge and hidden strength. The Alligator has acute senses, and waits patiently until the time is right - then “strikes”! Alligator can help us calm the turmoil in our emotions and find patience within chaotic situations. Alligators are cunning and strong! Like other water totems, Alligator can assist with seeing into and understanding emotional worlds. “Dive in” and access the ancient wisdom Alligator can help bring you to!

Native legends speak of crystal skulls as an inheritance from ancient times. Said to “talk and sing” they are believed to carry messages for all mankind, including what may be discovered when we overcome our fear of death.
The first layer you encounter when working with any skull, including Synergy, is "to remember." This is the first layer - and this layer has many other layers within it. What you are to called to remember is who you really are. It's so easy to get caught up in the daily things and forget that each life is short and sweet, even with the difficulties. The real you is a Being of Light. You are a Spiritual Being, inside of a physical body. "Remember."
