Product Description

The Weems Brass Stormglass Set is a mysterious weather predictor that is sure to intrigue. Stormglass instruments have been in use since the 1750s.

Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, mounted an instrument similar to the stormglass on the mast of HMS Beagle as a storm warning instrument during his historic voyage with Darwin in the 1830s.

The premise of the Weems Stormglass is that changing weather affects the solubility of the mixture of chemicals in the sealed glass tube. Some believe that the changes in crystal structures have to do with the electromagnetic changes caused by weather and sun storms.

  • Beautifully crafted brass cylinder
  • Sealed glass chamber holds the crystals of the stormglass
  • Brass & black plate displays with history & a key detailing crystal formations
  • Solid wood freestanding or wall mounted presentation plaque with marine lacquer
  • Instructions & mounting hardware
  • Lifetime guarantee
