This unique and decorative Globe Storm Glass reacts to the weather in a mysterious way. The storm glass has been used on ships since the 1750s. It was even used by Charles Darwin to predict the weather when he was on his way to the Galápagos Islands. The crystals will change shape depending on the actual weather. When the crystals are visible, humid and foggy weather could be expected. A cloudy glass with small crystals would tell Charles Darwin that a thunderstorm is on its way and clear glass will mean clear weather. This decorative Globe Storm Glass will react to atmospheric changes and is a lovely accessory to have in any room.
It comes in a beautiful packaging. The Storm Glasses work best when they are placed near a window and have settled for 2 weeks.
Keep in mind that this very nice ornament is not always a 100% accurate barometer, but neither is the weatherman!
