Uluru in central Australia is often referred to as the biggest monolith, although this is generally avoided by geologists; while the surrounding rocks were eroded, the rock survived as sandstone strata making up the surviving Uluru 'monolith'.
A monolith is a geological feature consisting of a single massive stone or rock, such as some mountains, or a single large piece of rock placed as, or within, a monument or building. Erosion usually exposes the geological formations, which are often made of very hard and solid igneous or metamorphic rock.
