Most compasses use a diagram known as the compass rose, which shows directions of the four cardinal points on the compass face with abbreviated initials for each. The rose is aligned with the corresponding geographic directions to help guide you on your way. The first compass was made during the ancient Han dynasty of China, and consisted of lodestone, a naturally magnetized ore of iron.
