One of the most sacred icons of ancient and modern times, Shiva Lingam stones are found only in the Narmada River in the Mandhata Mountains of India.  The Lingam shape represents the power of Shiva, Lord of Creation, with the markings symbolic of the marks on Lord Shiva’s forehead.  Tradition holds that a Shiva Lingam stone contains a microscopic version of the universe, where the form represents the male energy of knowledge and the markings represent the female energy of wisdom.

Possessing one of these stones is said to bring balance and harmony because of the mixture of male and female energies.  This sacred stone relates to the heart chakra and to the presence of love that resides in all of us.  The stones are crypto-crystalline quartz, said to exhibit the loftiest vibrations of all stones on Earth. Excellent stones for meditation.

Moviegoers may recall Indy’s quest to recover the sacred Shiva Lingam stones in the film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
