    Summary
    Heebie Jeebies Fitzroy's Storm Glass - Teardrop

    This Storm Glass was developed by Robert Fitzroy, captain of the HMS Beagle during its famous voyage with Charles Darwin. During the historic voyage, Fitzroy carefully documented how the storm glass would predict the weather.

    A Storm Glass works on principle that temperature and pressure affect solubility, sometimes resulting in clear liquid, other times causing precipitants to form. Each Storm Glass included the instruction below:
  • Clear Liquid : Fair Weather
  • Murky Liquid : Rainy Weather
  • Crystals at the top : Thunderstorms
  • Large Flaky Crystals : Cloudy Skies, Snow in winter
  • Thread of Crystals : Windy Weather

    I saw this for sale in the museum gift shop for $90.00 but i couldn't afford it so I was delighted to find the exact same product for a fraction of the price online at your store,
