Enter the Storm Glass
The storm glass was an instrument devised in the 17th century as a weather prediction device. It is a sealed, drop-shaped glass (ours is 20cm / 8in tall) that contains a special liquid. The state of crystallization of the liquid was believed to be associated with weather patterns, making it a potentially valuable weather forecasting apparatus – especially for seafarers. It has recently been shown that the storm glass is not a reliable barometer, with temperature being the sole driver of crystallization patterns in the liquid. However, the glass has recently started gaining in popularity as a gorgeous, unique home decor item that rarely fails to spark people’s imagination.
