The Shiva Lingam stone is prevalent in many aspects of Hindu belief and is a symbol of the Hindu god Shiva. Shaped a bit like an elongated egg, the Shiva Lingam comes in a variety of sizes, ranging from less than half an inch to several feet long. Each stone’s markings are unique, and the stone symbolizes Divine creation and the sacred balance of the soul. Because of its shape and similarity to phallic symbolism, the Shiva Lingam is often associated with male and female aspects of life, as well as potency, sexual fertility, and whole-self healing.
