Polished Silver Stormglass Weather Forecaster

This mysterious weather predictor has been used since 1750. Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, used the Stormglass aboard the HMS Beagle during his historic voyage with Darwin. After 250 years, how the Stormglass works is still a mystery, but it is believed that it has to do with the electromagnetic changes caused by weather and sun storms. The appearance of the crystals inside the glass indicates changes in the weather.

Using the stormglass you can predict the weather as follows.
- If fernlike crystals are building up - cold & stormy
- Fernlike crystals are dissappearing - warmer
- Star crystals are falling down - frost
- Crystals all over - rain
- Clear liquid - fine & dry

Sealed glass chamber holds the crystals and is encapsulated in a beautifully crafted silver cylinder.

Includes removable base, self tapping screw, finial, wall mounting accessory & instructions
