Lingam Stones found in the Narmada River located in India, are polished and elliptically shaped as the result of natural river tumbling. Lingam Stones have distinctive banding of red, maroon, and brown color patterns of iron oxide and other mineral deposits. Lingam stones are also referred to as Banalinga, Banashivalingas, and Shiva Lingam.
