WEEMS STORMGLASS SET
A Unique Gift - for a Unique Person!
This mysterious weather predictor has been in use since 1750. Vice Admiral Fitzroy, the famous sailor and meteorologist, used the Stormglass aboard the HMS Beagle during his historic voyage with Darwin. After 250 years, how the Stormglass works is still a mystery, but it is believed that electromagnetic changes caused by weather and sun storms affect the crystal formations. The appearance of the crystals inside the glass indicates changes in the weather.
• The Weems Stormglass is mounted on a wood plaque adjacent to a black and brass silver-plated legend that describes the five most common formations
