These Shiva Lingams (also called Bana Lingams) come only from the Narmada River in the central western region of India and are a variety of cryptocrystalline quartz that is oval in shape with earthy, two-toned hues. In ancient Sanskrit, Shiva Lingam means a “sign” or “symbol”. These Lingams were gathered and polished by hand.

- These egg-shaped Shiva Lingams are said to promote balance and harmony in one's life, and may also be useful for those engaged in the study of Ayurvedic practices.
