Predict the weather without even glancing out a window! This storm glass contains a liquid formula that changes according to forthcoming weather conditions.

Watch it change from a clear liquid to form crystals, clouds and flakes. Refined by Admiral Fitzroy in the 1800’s whilst on Darwin’s famous voyage of discovery, can this old sailor’s curiosity really forecast the weather? Only your observations will tell! This is intended as a scientific novelty for teens and adults and is not a toy. For best use, do not place in direct sunlight, heating or air conditioning.
