A classic Viking symbol used more than 1,000 years ago in Scandinavia. Known as a Vegvisir, Runic Compass or Signpost.

The Vegvisir or runic compass is a Viking Galdrastafir (rune stave), a magical device used to aid in navigation, to help prevent the wearer from getting lost during journeys through land or sea. According to a number of legends, this apotropaic (protective) symbol was inscribed on seagoing vessels to insure their safe return. The most common depiction of the rune comes from the 17th century Galdrabók, an Icelandic grimoire. Other variations are found in many older Icelandic manuscripts as well.

Today, it is most commonly paired with the Aegishjalmer, used as a symbol of spiritual guidance and an emblem of identification by Asatru believers. The most well-known example is worn as a tattoo by the Icelandic pop singer Bjork.


The hammered bronze pendant measures 1.5" (38mm) in diameter and has the historic symbol etched into it. The necklace is made of comfortable dark brown genuine deerskin leather and measures 18inches long +/- including the hammered bronze S-Hook clasp.

**Each medallion is hand made and may vary only slightly from piece to piece.
