Shiva Lingams are found in one place only, the Narmada River in Western India, which is one of India’s most holy sites. These gemstones have been an integral part of the Hindu worship for hundreds of years. Shiva Lingam are formed from a Cryptocrystalline Quartz and iron oxide, ranging in colour patterns of brown, red or grey stripes, spots or patches. The combination of these two minerals, occurred when a meteorite fell millions of years ago.
Some Shiva Lingam gemstones occur naturally in the shape of an elongated egg. Others are hand polished by locals of the area. The shape is believed to be a phallic representation of the Hindu God Shiva and his union with Kali. It is also believed to represent the shape of the cosmic egg, out of which all creation has emerged.
