Over 1,050 photos were combined to produce a 49,000-megapixel image. Shot over seven hours, the image took more than 50 hours to put together.
The end result is an unbelievably detailed photo of the ancient stone believed to be from heaven.
The photos were released by the the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques.
Located on the southeastern corner of the Holy Kaaba, the stone is used as a starting and ending point by Muslims to circumambulate during Haj and Umrah.
Muslims believe that the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) first placed the stone in its place centuries ago.
