Shiva Lingams are egg-shaped stones made of cryptocrystalline quartz. They are found in one of the seven holy sites of India - the Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata. Villagers gather the stones from the river and hand polish them. The egg shape is considered a phallic symbol of the Hindu god Shiva. The shiva lingam represents both male and female, as well as the cosmic egg from which all creation emerged. For every person born, there is a lingam specially meant for that individual. Think of it as if your soul, at the time of birth, was imprinted on a specific lingam. If you do not yet have a lingam, your lingam is out there, just waiting for you to find it. There are many types of lingams to experience when choosing the one that is meant for you… some lingams are traditional in that they consist of gray and brown cryptocrystalline quartz and come from the Narmada River, and others are lingam-shaped gemstones which bring a whole new level of energy to the lingam. For purposes of spiritual growth, both are excellent. We carry both traditional lingamsand gemmy lingams.
