This big boulder of Puggaard Stenen or Puggårdstenen is found in the water outside in the bay of Hjelm on Møen. It is named after the Danish geologist Christopher Puggaard (1823-1864), by Hans Peter Bille (1854 -1916), also called Rosenbille  (Rose beetle) after the usual rose he wore on his jacket . Lived at Strandholdt in Bissinge. He was happy to work in amber and clay, and he had a large collection of minerals, fossils and antiquities as well as collections of butterflies and insects.

It came oput of the clay wall around 1877, and flet down on the sand in 1903. As the cliffs erodaded more, it ended out in the sea. Then, the ice in the ´40 winters pushed it back up on the beach, only to be erudated back in the sea today.

Location: Rytsebækvej 17, 4780 Stege - follow the hedge to the water and turn 20 metres right. It is 22 metres out.

GPS: 54.916915, 12.254681.

Meaning of the name: Named after the Danish geologist Christopher Puggaard.

The boulder was exposed in 1877 and felt on to the beach in 1903.
