Science says that the hexagonal stepping stones were formed when cooling lava burst through the earth's rock in the Cainozoic
period, but legend has it that a giant named Finn McCool wanted to build a path between Northern Ireland and Scotland so that his Scottish lover could visit without getting her feet wet.
Four major structure domains are recognized: Busang basement complex, Kapuas fold belt, foreland domain, and late cainozoic
For poorly defined Cainozoic
unconsolidated material, such as unqualified 'alluvium' or 'colluvium' for which their broad composition is unknown, lithological classes were allocated following reference to existing soil type maps.
