Saptik Lingam/ Sphatik Shivaling
A Shivling fashioned of the translucent gemstone Sphatik, also known as Crystal, Quartz, Crystal Quartz, and Clear Quartz in English, is known as a Sphatik Shivling or Spatika Lingam. Sphatik, also known as Clear Quartz, is a popular gemstone that has been formed over thousands of years in the Earth’s crust. The Spatika Lingam is one of the most powerful Shivlings made of gemstones, and it is popular for worshipping in homes and offices.
Importance of Sphatik Shivling
Sphatik Shiva Lingam is said to have several therapeutic and spiritual characteristics, making it a Shivling venerated by Rishis/Sages and wise ones from ancient times. Sphatik Shiva Lingam signifies Lord Shiva’s Nirguna Brahman attribute, which translates to “attributeless.” Lord Shiva devotees who are aware of the benefits of Sphatik Shivling worship a real Sphatik Lingam at home.
Since the dawn of time, Lord Shiva has been worshipped in the Lingam or Shivling form, which indicates Lord Shiva’s formless shape, as He has no beginning nor end and is unlimited. Shivling depicts the union of Shakti and Shiva, the seat of creation. The auspicious Sphatik ka Shivling has a high frequency and acts as a supercharger for the worshipper and the space it is installed in. Worshiping a Shivalinga Sphatik is thought to be equivalent to worshipping “Jyotirlingas.” Sphatik brings prosperity, joy, and fulfilment to the home where it is worshipped. The powers of Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu, who constitute the Triad with Lord Shiva, are said to be present in the Spatika Lingam. Lord Shiva, according to the Divine Trinity’s interpretation, is the Universe’s destroyer. On a spiritual level, His function as a destroyer helps people to dismantle their egos and face the truth about themselves, which leads to spiritual growth and transformation.

How Can You Keep Sphatik Shivling at Home / Pooja Altar / Office?
Installing the Spatika Lingam on a Yoni base, if it does not already have one, is the proper manner to keep it at home, on a Pooja (Puja) Altar, or in an office place. Sphatik, metals such as Silver, Brass, and other materials can be used for the Yoni basis. The Sphatik Shivling can be put in two ways that are both appropriate.
1) Face the Yoni base towards the north in the Puja Altar. This means that the point where the Abhishekam liquid runs out should face North, and the devotee should face East, i.e. the Shivling’s West face.
2) Face the Yoni East and the worshipper/devotee North, towards the South face of the Sphatik Shiva Lingam.
