The Historic Reproduction Storm Glass is a home décor weather instrument that helps you find out when bad weather is coming. Invented in the 19th century by sailor and meteorologist Admiral FitzRoy, this device is a liquid and crystal filled storm glass that can predict the weather up to 2 days in advance. Changes in the crystal formations can indicate fair weather (clear liquid), rainy weather (murky liquid), thunderstorms (crystals at the top), cloudy skies with snow (large flaky crystals) and even windy weather (threads of crystals).

This thing is really pretty cool. I'm a sucker for unique items like this and was so impressed with it that I ordered another for a friend of mine. He loves it too.
I've put a lot of thought into how this thing works and have decided to be comfortable with the fact that it really does work. A great conversation piece.
