A compass is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic cardinal directions, or “points”. Usually, a diagram called a compass rose, which shows the directions north, south, east, and west as abbreviated initials marked on the compass.
The magnetic compass was not, at first, used for navigation, but for geomancy and fortune-telling by the Chinese. The earliest Chinese magnetic compasses were possibly used to order and harmonize buildings in accordance with the geomantic principles of Feng Shui. These early compasses were made with lodestone, a form of the mineral magnetite that is a naturally-occurring magnet and aligns itself with the Earth’s magnetic field.
