The geology in Egersund is unique in world scale. Magma Geoparks geology, consists of anorthosite magma, a type of stone only to be found in Egersund, in Canada and on the moon! The story began already 1.5 billion years ago, when red-hot magma and sky-high mountains characterized the ground in the area.
