Legendary Viking Sunstone Crystal


Availability: Available (Ships in 2 to 3 Days)


Quick Overview

Legendary Viking Sunstone Crystal w/ Drawstring Pouch. As legend tells us, over 1000 years ago, the Viking Sunstone, also known as Iceland Spar, or Iceland Crystal, was used by the Vikings to help navigate long distances, even on cloudy days and just after the sun had set. Iceland Spar exhibits the optical property of double refraction. Anything viewed through the crystal appears double. The location of the sun can be determined by adjusting the crystal in orientation to the sun until the two images are of equal brightness. The Iceland Spar is then directly facing the sun. This allowed Vikings to successfully sail thousands of miles. Such a navigational aid is one of the secrets behind the Vikings' reputation as remarkable seafarers.

Includes one piece of Genuine Iceland Spar, Black Velvet drawstring pouch and "The Legend of the Viking Sunstone" leaflet. (Iceland Spar is a natural crystal and will vary in size and shape.)
