Ball Granite in Slättemossa

The "ball granite" is a kind of stone that has stiffened under pressure at great depth, and then surfaced after motions in the crust of the earth. In Slättemossa there are two visible blocks of "ball granite". The space between the balls is filled with solid granite. When the inland ice scraped and polished the rocks, a cross section of the "ball granite" became visible. It looks like thousand eyes staring at the visitors. Slättemossa is the only place were you can find this kind of unique stone in Sweden.
