As rocking stones or rocking stones (rocking stones) are usually caused by deposition or weathering phenomena in boulders that balance easily movable on their base. They are preferably formed from granitic digestion rock as a late manifestation of the weathering of the wool sack, more rarely from horizontal bedded sedimentary rocks.First, the weathering processes extend the primarily created fracture systems in the rock until the rock complex disintegrates over time into individual blocks, which are then - gradually reduced - gradually eroded. In rare cases, larger individual blocks are preserved in exposed "shaky" position. A form similar to the Wackelstein is the mushroom rock.The astonishing mobility of those in balance, often huge masses led in many places to the emergence of myths and legends, in which such stones play an essential role, for example as oracles or "toys" of giants.Another genus is Wackelsteine created by human activities. In the Ganløse Eged, a 167-acre forest on the Danish island of Zealand, the stone of a long dyslexia (dolmen) has become a shaky stone.
