Storm glass

VAT included

This creation is a great replica of a popular item in the 1860s, popularised (though not invented) by Admiral Robert FitzRoy. The degree to which the liquid inside the orb crystalises is supposed to be predictive of weather conditions :

  • Clear liquid : bright and clear weather
  • Cloudy liquid : cloudy weather as well, perhaps with precipitation
  • Small dots : humid or foggy weather
  • Cloudy glass with small stars : thunderstorms or snow
  • Large flakes throughout the liquid : overcast in temperate seasons or snowy in the winter
  • Crystals at the bottom : frost
  • Threads near the top : wind
