The Domaresten (meaning judges’ stone, also called Klangstenen vid Borgs kyrka) is about 8.5 m south of a path, southwest of the hamlet of Borg near Norrköping in Östergötland in Sweden. The stone makes a sound when struck.

It is a dolmen of the Fröböke type, which, like the Sangelstenen (from Singen) or sound stone from Laikarhaid on Gotland, is also known as the sacrificial stone. The rock on top of it measures 1.8 × 1.2 m and is 0.7 m high. The stone rests on three 0.4 to 0.5 m large stones. The north end seems to have been cut off. On top, there are eight more or less uneven, angular bowls. The southernmost is the best trained. Three are 4.5-5.0 cm in diameter and 0.3-0.5 cm deep. One is 7.0 cm in diameter and 1.0 cm deep.
