Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption. The scientists had proved that the column in the Giant's causeway were formed after a volcano erupted about some 60 millions years ago and when the lava cooled it cracked and broke up forming a type of rck called basalt. Block of stone looked like a huge staircase or causeway.

The tops of the columns of Giant's Causeway form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven and eight sides. The tallest are about 12 metres (39 ft) high, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 metres thick in places.

The Giant's Causeway was named as the fourth greatest natural wonder in the United Kingdom.
