Shiva Lingam is a tough crypto-crystalline Quartz with impurities that give it a very unique appearance. This stone has iron oxide deposits within it, said to come from a meteor that crashed into the river millions of years ago. It contains a mixture of Agate, Basalt, and Jasper. The color of this stone is primarily grey or pale brown with brown-red patches, stripes, or rings throughout. No two Shiva Lingam stones are alike, each one is unique. The most defining characteristic of Shiva Lingam is its smooth egg shape which is formed from natural tumbling within the Narmada River, where it is gathered and hand polished by villagers. The Narmada River is one of the seven holy sites of India, and one of the five holy rivers, located in Onkar Mandhata (in western India).
