A ferroic crystal contains one or more domains, volumes of the same homogeneous crystalline structure in different spatial orientations. The homogeneous bulk structure of domains are called domain states. In addition to the ferroelectric, ferromagnetic, and ferroelastic primary ferroic crystals, where domain states differ, respectively by spontaneous polarization, magnetization, and strain, recently observed fourth type of primary ferroic crystal. where domain states differ in spontaneous toroidal moment. This leads to additional contributions to the difference in the free enthalpy between domain states. In this paper, Ferrotoroidic domain pairs are calculated by using coset decomposition for 116 ferroic species, taking 32 point groups as prototypic point grou
