Product Description

The Weems Chrome Stormglass is a mysterious weather predictor that is sure to intrigue. Thought to have been invented by an alchemist for Italian sailors, stormglass instruments have been in use since the 1750s.

Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, mounted an instrument similar to the Weems chrome 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 Chrome 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. This stormglass is a beautiful and unique gift for the home, boat or office.

  • Sealed glass chamber holds the crystals and is encapsulated in a beautifully crafted chrome cylinder
  • Includes chrome mounting accessories - base, self tapping screw, finial and mounting accessory (to enable either wall or counter/table top fixed mounting)
  • Packaged in a handsome velvet-lined black gift box
