Laser scanning of the Great Trilith discovered its unusually smooth, clear contours and smooth surface compared to other trilites. It allowed suggest that the creators of Stonehenge made targeted efforts in processing the Great Trilite and polished menhir more carefully because of his special position on the axis of the solstice, just as how did they do for other stones located on the sides axis.
