Storm Glasse
 

The Storm Glass

This mysterious weather predictor has been in use for over 250 years, but why it works is still a mystery. It is believed that its function relates to electromagnetic changes caused by weather and sun storms.  When the weather is turning inclement, the clear fluid first turns cloudy, then crystalline with feathery "fronds" in cold and rainy conditions.  It's been used on a number of famous voyages, most notably, those of Darwin's Beagle. 1-5/8" in diameter, 5-3/4" tall.

Available in polished brass or chrome.  Mounting bracket not included; order separately.
