Also known as magnetite, Lodestone is a form of iron oxide that is magnetic. Early compasses were made with pieces of lodestone. There are several large lodestone deposits in Philmont, especially in the Valle Vidal.

Due to the magnetic nature of the rock, areas in which it is located are often hard to navigate in with a standard compass. For this reason, it is advised to have a secondary navigation method such as a GPS.
