Product Description

What is a Fitzroy Storm Glass and how does it work? Vice Admiral Robert Fitzroy (1805 – 1865) was the Captain of the HMS Beagle, which was the boat Darwin took on his famous voyage to the Galapagos Islands. He was also a pioneer in the field of meteorology and perfected numerous barometers. His “Storm Glass” was so popular, in the 1860’s it was distributed by the Royal Crown throughout the British Islands. According to Fitzroy’s findings, this glass barometer forecasts the weather based on changes in the formation of crystals inside the column. If the liquid is clear, the weather will be bright and clear. If the liquid is cloudy, the weather will be cloudy as well, perhaps with precipitation. If there are small dots in the liquid, humid or foggy weather should be expected. A cloudy glass with small stars may indicate thunderstorms. If the liquid contains small stars on sunny winter days, expect snow. If there are large flakes throughout the liquid, it should be overcast in temperate seasons or snowy in the winter. Crystals at the bottom indicate frost. Threads near the top mean that it will be windy.
