A Shiva Lingam measuring one inch in length is suspended from a necklace of 8mm Red Creek jasper rondelles and 6mm natural gray fossil round beads, all separated by 3mm sterling silver spacers. The necklace measures 19-3/8 inches, including the man-size sterling silver lobster clasp.
Shiva Lingams are egg-shaped stones that originate at the Narmada River in western India, one of India's seven holy sites. Villagers gather the rough stones from shallow river beds and hand polish them to the classic elliptical proportions. The Shiva Lingam symbolizes both the male and female, as well as the cosmic egg out of which all creation is said to have emerged.
Shiva Lingams resonate deeply with the energies of the earth, yet they also carry strong energies of water, wind and even fire. For those who feel they need a boost of vitality and prana energies, meditating or sleeping with a Shiva Lingam is highly recommended.
