Numerous reference books and Georgia literature have dubbed Stone Mountain as “the largest exposed piece of granite in the world".

Simmons, and included two elderly members of the original Klan.Over time, erosion eventually exposed the present mountain of more resistant igneous rock.This intrusion of granite also gave rise to Panola Mountain and Arabia Mountain, both in De Kalb County, smaller outcroppings farther south of Stone Mountain.The largest bas-relief sculpture in the world, the Confederate Memorial Carving depicts three Confederate leaders of the Civil War: President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. "Stonewall" Jackson (and their favorite horses, "Blackjack", "Traveller", and "Little Sorrel", respectively).The entire carved surface measures 1.57 acres (6,400 m).

The clear freshwater pools on the summit form by rainwater gathering in eroded depressions, and are home to unusual clam shrimp and fairy shrimp.
