Found only in the Narmada River in India,  Lingams (also called Shiva Lingams or Bana Lingas) are a variety of cryptocrystalline quartz that is oval in shape and contains earthy hues, usually two-toned.  In ancient Sanskrit, Shiva Lingam means a “sign” or “symbol”.  These Lingams are gathered once a year in a special ceremony and then polished by hand.

The shape of the Shiva Lingam makes it a powerful energy generator appropriate for healing a unique tool for meditation and cleansing. The natural shaping and polishing process forms a very balanced ritual object that combines both masculine and feminine attributes, providing a unified vibration.

The Shiva Lingam is a stone of insight, allowing the user to recognize and let go of things (feelings, emotions, etc.) that no longer serve or have been outgrown. The lingam represents the center axis of life, connecting earth with universe.

Lingam is symbolic of the Divine Creative Manifestation. The Lingam shape is representative of the power of Shiva, the Lord of Creation, and the masculine creative energy. The markings, also known as the yoni, symbolize the feminine energy, the seed which is fertilized to manifest the creative power in the dance of the cosmos. Geologists theorize that the iron oxide, of which the yoni is composed, was impregnated in the river bed millions of years ago by a meteorite.
