Let me ask you a question, how you figure out the weather condition in these days? Instead of checking your phone, asking “Hey Siri/Google, how is the weather today?”, there is a very unconventional way – Storm Glass Weather Predictor.
What is that? Storm Glasses (wiki) are amazing devices that have been used by sailors to forecast storms for hundreds of years. The Storm Glass is a sealed glass container containing a liquid with crystals that change based on the weather conditions. It can predict sunny weather, cloudy weather, thunderstorms, and even blizzards.
The premise of the functioning of the storm glass is that temperature and pressure affect solubility, sometimes resulting in clear liquid; other times causing precipitants to form. The functioning of this type of storm glass is not fully understood.
Sounds pretty interesting? I am not sure how accurate it is, but if you don’t mind checking the crystals and compared it with the diagram, you can give it a try. It can makes a unique and elegant gift in many occasions. If you like that idea, you can find it on amazon.
