"The elongated egg shape of the Shiva Lingam is actually regarded as symbolic of the phallus of the Hindu god Shiva. In temples it is often paired with a corresponding object symbolizing the female, or the yoni. Yet within its own form, 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. In fact, the fire energy of these stones is so strong they are capable of activating kundalini energies and charging the entire chakra system." From the book, The Book of Stones.
