Originally a method used by seafarers to predict oncoming storms, this weather station responds to atmospheric changes to forecast the weather.
This raindrop weather station is an example of a storm glass, once used by seafarers to predict the weather. The liquid inside the raindrop shaped glass changes in response to fluctuations in the atmosphere. As the chance of storms or other bad weather increases, crystals grow in the liquid. This stylish weather station is a great gift for a science lover, or a great way to learn about chemistry, weather, and the atmosphere at home.
