A meteorological wonder you can wear!
This small Storm Glass pendant is filled with liquid that can predict the weather. How? You read the appearance of the liquid and the crystals that form inside the glass. Wear it as a conversation starter or hang it in a favorite spot.
Fitzroy’s Storm Glass pendant measures about 1.5” across, and is strung on a silver chain with a drop of about 11.75”.
How the Storm Glass works is still a mystery, but it is believed that electromagnetic changes in weather patterns activate the crystals inside. Storm Glasses were first popularized by Admiral Robert Fitzroy after his voyage on the HMS Beagle. Admiral Fitzroy was also a pioneering meteorologist who is credited with creating the term, and practice, of weather “forecasts”.

If you are wearing the Storm Glass pendant, it may not be a reliable way to predict the weather. Body heat can compromise the effectiveness.
