Eon Concepts Storm Glass Weather Predictor
For centuries people have been fascinated by the idea of predicting the weather and in the 17th century, the ‘Storm Glass’ became popular as a way of doing just that.
It wasn’t just idle curiosity either, as foreknowledge of approaching storms could be a lifesaver when you were at sea. It was for this reason that the Storm Glass was promoted in the 1860s by Admiral Robert FitzRoy.
The Storm Glass was a sealed glass container containing a combination of special liquids. How the crystals formed within the liquid was believed to be connected with the state of the weather.
However, it is now known that the crystal growth is only altered by the temperature change of the surroundings. Everyone likes to have an ornamental addition to their home that also does something. Something beautiful and practical that doesn’t need any manipulation by you the owner.
The Storm Glass Weather Predictor from Eon Concepts is a device that is as beautiful as it is fascinating.
