Shiva Lingam Stone 3" PolishedShiva Lingam Stone 3" Polished
Shiva Lingam is a crypto-crystalline member of the Quartz family. This stone is found in only one of seven sacred Indian rivers. Villagers visit the Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata and polish these river rocks to better define their famed lingam shape. Shiva Lingams can range in size, with pieces being found as tall as 10 feet. In Hindu culture, the lingam is a representation of the Lord Shiva in Shaivism and is believed to be a representation of their phallus. In Ancient Sanskrit text, the word Shiva means “sign” or “symbol” which translates to “Shivas Sign”. The Lingam represents the Brahmanda, which means “cosmic egg”, symbolizing the creation of both the divine male and female energies. Oftentimes temples are built with a single Shiva Lingam residing in the center, resting within a Yoni representing the female organ.
