Description
Enjoy predicting the weather with this Fitzroy Storm Glass Barometer, named after Admiral Fitzroy, an accomplished meteorologist who used a storm glass on his historic 1831 voyage with Charles Darwin aboard the HMS Beagle. How this storm glass barometer really works remains a mystery, but it is believed that electromagnetic changes in weather patterns activate the crystals inside. When the air pressure decreases watch and wait as the sealed-glass chamber fills with crystals. Framed in a lacquered polished-brass, or chrome case, the barometer can stand or be attached to the wall via a mount, making it a wonderful addition to you indoor décor. A separately sold Wood Mounting Plaque has an etched-brass plate that explains storm glass dynamics, giving extra information for curious visitors. Predictions are usually 1-2 days in advance.

• Fitzroy Storm Glass Barometer predicts weather 2 days in advance
• Brass or Chrome finish makes for a stylish addition to interior decoration
• Wall and table mounts allow for multiple presentation options
• Separate Wood Mounting Plaque explains storm glass dynamics
• Storm glass barometer provides fun learning points for families

Quality Piece
Comments about Product:
The storm glass piece was easy to install. We wall mounted it and it looks nice with our barometer and thermometer. We've not yet experienced a storm so we haven't been able to see it in action but are anxious to watch as winter approaches.

Fascinating ! Unknown filled with awe !
Comments about Product:
I use this product for determining the forecast of the day of week. It;s great to have it in a good visable place. I like have the explanations right on the plaque so I can read them. Wish I didn't have to use my glasses to read the forecast.

How does it do that?
Comments about Product:
This is such a unique gift! My husband and I enjoy watching crystals form as it predicts the weather several days in advance. It is also so pretty. We have said we wished it were bigger!!

Didn't work!
Comments about Product:
We thought we'd found the perfect birthday gift for our avid sailing father/father-in-law who resides by the Chesapeake Bay. Especially since his dwelling is in a high rise - he could check conditions by this attractive instrument before venturing out to the marina! Perhaps that's the reason for its failure to function - the elevation. None of the information or reviews revealed this potential drawback however. The weather went through several changes; the instrument, none. So, disappointedly, it had to be returned.

1800's not 1750!!
Comments about Product:
The young Darwin seems to have been genuinely surprised by FitzRoy's invitation to publish his journal as part of the official narrative of the Beagle's five-year circumnavigation… leading to the opening of his first notebook on "Transmutation of Species" in 1837.

Better than the weather man
Comments about Product:
Our storm glass sits where it is noticeable from several areas in our great room. We check it frequently, it is great fun to see what's happening. Not only has it been highly accurate, but we've found it to be more reliable than the weather men on our local TV channels. That was especially true this past winter. This weather instrument is a lovely little accent piece and is so attractive that conversations have been built around it. Our guests are usually quite curious as to what it is and how it works. I wouldn't hesitate to give this as a gift.

Now, I rely on it all the time
Comments about Product:
As an old Navy man I wish I had this device with me when I was aboard ship years ago in the '60s as a Junior Officer,I might have been able to tell the Skipper of conditions before the ship's weathermen.
