The beach between Simrishamn and Brantevik is the place in southern
Sweden where the beautiful kvarsit-kambrical variety
of sandstone appears, i.e. the Scanian marble. The constructors
of Ales stenar probably transported the stemstones, and the keelstone
on the ground in SE, from Brantevik, whose marbled flat rocks
corresponds with these. The finest variety of stones have been
put in place to symbolize the most important periods during a
solar year, i.e. the winter solstice and the summer solstice.
