Looming high above you, taller than three of the tallest giantmen, this stone giant dominates the surrounding area. The stone giant's skin is a smooth dull grey with mottled brown splotches and its eyes, concealed under a heavy brow, gleam black with hatred.

Hunting strategies

Stone giants fall to the ground when killed, and can crush an adventurer in their path while doing so. Disabling a stone giant and knocking it to the ground before killing it is wise. However, knocking stone giants to the ground can cause them to topple onto you.

An example of a stone giant falling on someone:

The stone giant rumbles in agony as she teeters for a moment, then falls directly at you!
In a vain attempt, you leap to dodge the massive falling creature! The giant strikes you squarely, crushing you beneath her and the ground!

You swing a mithril claidhmore at a stone giant!
  AS: +336 vs DS: +146 with AvD: +19 + d100 roll: +89 = +298
  ... and hits for 74 points of damage!
  Hard blow breaks the femur!
The stone giant rumbles in agony as she teeters for a moment, then falls directly at you!
In a futile attempt, Person leaps to dodge the massive falling creature!  The giant strikes him squarely, crushing you beneath her and the ground
  ... 60 points of damage!
  Incredible smash to what used to be a stomach!

Other information

You can't cast major sanctify in some, if not all rooms on Thanatoph.
Also, if someone attempts to pull you up off the ground it will cause both to plummet over the cliff (in some rooms: u/d).
Stone giant's skin is seemingly the same DF/AvD as plate.
