Let's face it, the weatherman isn't always right, so you might not want to rely solely on his predictions, or you could even enjoy predicting your own weather forecasts!If that's the case, then this Weather Storm Glassis just the gadget you've been waiting for! The exact science behind the method is still a mystery, but there are theories that hold electromagnetic changes in weather patterns responsible. Whatever it is, it works!
This invention was developed in the mid-1700s and soon became a vital tool aboard ships and harbors around Europe, to offer predictions on approaching inclement weather. It gained notable famedue to Admiral FitzRoy, who utilized aStorm Glasson his voyage with Darwin when they traveled together to the Galapagos Islands.
The changes in the solution signify the following:
Clear liquid: Bright weather.
Crystals at the bottom: Thick air, frost in winter.
Dim liquid with small stars: Thunderstorms.
Large flakes: Heavy air, overcast sky, snow in winter.
Threads in the upper portion of liquid: Windy weather.
Small dots: Damp weather, fog.
Rising flakes which remain high: Wind in the upper air regions.
Small stars: In winter on bright, sunny days, snow in one or two days.
The higher the crystals rise in the glass tube in winter the colder it will be.
This contemporary version of that age-old gadget is an amazingand natural way to forecast the weather. Will it be clear, cloudy, or pervaded with thunderstorms? With the Weather Storm Glass, the weather is completely predictable, as the appearance of the liquid, transforming from clear to cloudy and then to crystal flakes, makes it unmistakably evident!

So cool! Got one for myself and knew for a friend. I love the story behind it, and that it takes like 2 weeks to acclimate! The size is great, it blends in well with all of my things but could look good alone as well. It's a little early to tell if it's really accurate or. not, but it is showing frost and we just had a cold front come in so that's pretty neat. I really just like the style and the feeling of being tied to history the most
My son is studying weather at school so I thought this would be a fun gift for his teacher. It's a very interesting concept and the class is excited about checking on its progress every morning. It comes with a wooden pedestal to rest it on that seems very sturdy. This is important for something around so many children.

So cute and works great. This looks adorable on my mantle. The weather forecast seems accurate-- it changes with the weather, so that's promising. It's a great conversation piece.
I am lover of science and this is simply a beautiful way to get your weather forecast. I am impressed at how accurate this magical device works. Still using the same science from 1863 to predict the weather. Be sure to follow the instruction and recommend researching a Storm Glass. I think you will be impressed?
Makes a great gift ... for a friend ... or yourself ... Lol
I put this in my outdoor lab as a conversation piece and teaching tool for my students. It reacts to the changes in temperature outside. The glass is clear and free from defects, the wooden base is smooth and fits nicely on my shelf.
I always wanted one of these. The wooden base is a nice touch. I love the story behind storm glasses and this one came with one printed on the box.
