Rare Black Shiva Lingam's are much more rare than “regular” Shiva Lingam's, as they are revered by the temples as highly auspicious and prized.
Shiva Lingam's are a unique oval-shaped mineral from the Naramada River in India, where they are naturally polished from the river's currents at a dam. There is one time of the year (the dry season) when they are collected by the local people. They are hand polished with blessed waxes and oils, according to recipes handed down within the family.
