Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain is a quartz monzonite dome monadnock (an isolated rock hill, knob, ridge, or small mountain that rises abruptly from a gently sloping or virtually level surrounding plain) and the site of Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

At its summit, the elevation is 1,686 feet (514 m) and 825 feet (251 m) above the surrounding area. Stone Mountain is well-known not only for its geology, but also for the enormous rock relief on its north face, the largest bas-relief in the world.
