6" Admiral Fitzroy Storm Glass

Regular price $12.99 Sale

How this storm glass really works is a mystery, but it is believed that electromagnetic changes in weather patterns activate crystals inside (sealed-glass chamber fills with crystals when air pressure decreases). Famed meteorologist Admiral Fitzroy used a storm glass in 1750 on a historic voyage with Charles Darwin.

Guidelines: If there are large flakes throughout the liquid, it will be overcast in temperate seasons or snowy in the winter.

If there are threads near the top, it will be warming or windy.

If the liquid contains small stars on sunny winter days, then snow is coming.

If there are crystals at the bottom, this indicates frost.

A cloudy glass with small stars indicates thunderstorms.

If the liquid in the glass is clear, the weather will be bright and clear.

The Storm Glass is standing 6 inch tall. Guidelines are printed on the glass.
