It was painted in lamp black colour to make it visible, when light shown on it.In December 1844, the Astronomer Royal at the Cape, Thomas Maclear, instructed his assistant William Mann to build a beacon in the form of a pile of rocks which would be used to confirm and possibly expand on the existing curvature of the earth data of Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille. This data was in connection with the Cape arc of the meridian. Initially the beacon had no name but in later years it was named after Maclear.In 1929, the pile of stones collapsed and it was restored in 1979 to commemorate the centenary of Maclear's death.The beacon is still used by cartographers today.
