The Shiva Lingham stone is from the sacred Narmada River in Onkar Mandhata, one of India's seven holy sites. Villagers gather this unique Crypto-crystalline quartz (a form of Jasper with impurities) from shallow riverbeds. Naturally formed, Lingham describes their egg-like shape. They are sometimes hand polished to balance their proportions.
This often worshiped fertility stone is revered by Hindus as the embodiment of Lord Shiva. Lingham is also the sacred Sanskrit word for phallus. In Tantra, the shape embodies masculine energy, dynamic expression and knowledge.

Together, the female energy arouses the masculine urge to create. As such, the Tantric Lingham unifies the dualistic (male/female) world into harmonious balance.
