The Viking compass, also known as a sunstone, was used by Norse sailors to determine the sun’s position, even on cloudy days. This allowed them to navigate their longships to distant lands, such as Iceland, Greenland, and even North America. The compass symbolizes hope and determination, representing the ability to find one’s way home despite storms and adversity. The stones were worn as amulets by Vikings and were often buried with them upon their death. Today, the compass is still an important symbol of Scandinavian culture and can be found in everything from jewelry to architecture. It serves as a reminder of the Viking spirit of exploration and discovery.
