These exquisite crystals are sourced from the same Hot Springs mine in Arkansas as the Sivalingam now residing in the revered Kadavul Hindu Temple on Kauai, Hawaii. Each crystal possesses its own unique size and shape, adding to their individuality and charm.
In August 1987, Subramuniyaswami acquired an extraordinary sphatika Sivalingam—a giant quartz crystal—to enshrine in the magnificent Chola-style temple. Weighing over 700 pounds and standing at an impressive 39 inches tall, it remains the largest six-sided, single-pointed crystal ever discovered. Natural stones hold a special significance in Siva temples, symbolizing the presence of God beyond all forms and attributes. Among all stones, crystal is deemed the most supreme for the Sivalingam.
The temple’s esteemed Tamil architect, who frequently visits the island, considers the crystal Lingam as the greatest marvel of the temple. In his words, “If all the crystal Lingams in India were combined into one, they would still not equal the power of this one crystal.”
Embrace the sacred energy and wonder of these crystals, intimately connected to the divine legacy of the Kadavul Hindu Temple. Allow their presence to inspire and uplift your spiritual journey.
