Of all more or less fanciful names included on the map of Stångehuvud from 1892 Lejonpallen is one of the most wellknown. Lejonpallen is located high above the shore southwest of Gallebergs udde in the northern part of Stångehuvud. The pegmatite is composed of much coarser minerals than the surrounding granite. With pretty much imagination this pegmatite formation has been likened to a lion and the place has been named Lejonpallen ("Lions stool").

The bright formations in the "lion figure" consists of ordinary light colored quartz, but there is also a darker variation of quartz, often called smoky quartz. The coarse red crystals are composed of potassium feldspar. It is also seen some albite, a feldspar mineral of lighter, often greenish beige or green colour. The characteristic pegmatite figure on the rock wall is also seen clearly if one passes by boat.
