|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.
