Personalised Fitzroy Storm Glass in Wooden Cradle Description

This Fitzroy Storm Glass in Wooden Cradle is a fabulous unusual gift for those who love something that is not only useful but also a little quirky!

This admiral Fitzroy storm glass is a barometer that come into general use in the early 1700's.  Sailors would attach this instrument to their mast on their ships and then rely upon it to forecast either good weather or poor conditions at sea.  Admiral Robert Fitzroy (1805-1865) was commander of the HMS Beagle and also participated in the Charles Darwin expedition (1834-1836) and in that time conducted a detailed study of the storm glass.  He refined the chemical formulation and published observation guidelines as below:

Clear Liquid - Bright and clear weather
Cloudy liquid sometimes with small stars and crystals at the top - Cloudy weather and often predicts thunderstorms and rain.
Small dots in the liquid - Humid or Foggy Weather
Large Flaky Crystal - Cloudy skies, snow in winter
Threads of crystals at the top - Windy Weather
Crystals at the bottom - frost maybe coming

It really is a mystery how this barometer works but it is believed that electromagnetic changes in the weather patterns activate the crystals inside.

Full instructions on how to use your Storm Glass Barometer are included.

This Fabulous storm Glass Barometer comes within a wooden frame which can be personalised over 4 lines, 28 characters on each .

**Please note this item should be handled with care and kept out of reach of children as it contains flammable liquid therefore should be kept away from combustible material.  In case of breakage clean the spilt liquid with warm water and mild soap.**
