Shiva Lingam Stone
Collected in the Narmada River as sacred stones by Hindus for over 4,000 years, lingams are ancient sacred objects. As symbols of Shiva, they are believed to impart powers of fertility. According to local belief, lingams were marked by a meteoric impact and, therefore, represent the union between heaven and earth. Iron oxide contributes the decorative brown/red markings on composite quartz granite. Shaped naturally in an elongated ovoid form, lingams are harvested during the dry season and are laboriously polished by hand using ancient methods without the use of mechanized tools.
