Kinnekulle

The blossoming mountain

Kinnekulle has a complete set of layers featuring all of the rocks found in the table mountains: basement, sandstone, alum shale, limestone, clay shale, and dolerite. The dolerite layer is very thin, however – only about 10 metres thick. That is why Kinnekulle has such a characteristic conical shape and lacks the big dolerite plateau that many of the other mountains have.
