This storm glass is the same size and shape as an 11" Galileo Thermometer.

11"/28cm Tall

The storm glass was popularized by Admiral Robert Fitzroy after his historic voyage on the HMS Beagle.

How the Storm Glass works is still a mystery, and in fact it likely does not predict the weather. But it does react to weather changes, mostly from temperature and makes gorgeous crystal patterns with those changes.
This is a gorgeous decorative gift idea for the adult who has everything or someone who finds meteorology fascinating.
