This sacred river stone is found only in one place on earth, the Narmada River, an inlet of the Ganges. When held they bring an overall sense of calmness and well-being. The dark yoni markings are feminine, and the shape is masculine; symbolizing a perfect balance. Each stone is unique.
Shiva lingam are considered to be crystals. The stewy bed of the Narmada river is said to be riddled with the microscopic debris of a crashed meteorite touching down over 14 million years ago. The entire river, not only the stones, is considered to have healing attributes. Many from around the world make a Pilgrimage to the river in hopes of benefiting from its powers.
Shiva Lingam stones are Cryptocrystalline Quartz combined with Iron Oxide deposits and a mixture of Chalcedony, Agate, Basalt, and Jasper. They come in all many sizes and are especially sought out by Shaman and healers.
