This admiral Fitzroy storm glass is a barometer that come into general use in the early 1700's. Sailors would attach this instrument to their mast on their ships and then rely upon it to forecast either good weather or poor conditions at sea. Admiral Robert Fitzroy (1805-1865) was commander of the HMS Beagle and also participated in the Charles Darwin expedition (1834-1836) and in that time conducted a detailed study of the storm glass. He refined the chemical formulation and published observation guidelines as below: Clear Liquid - Bright and clear weather Cloudy liquid sometimes with small stars and crystals at the top - Cloudy weather and often predicts thunderstorms and rain. Small dots in the liquid - Humid or Foggy Weather Large Flaky Crystal - Cloudy skies, snow in winter Threads of crystals at the top - Windy Weather Crystals at the bottom - frost maybe coming It really is a mystery how this barometer works but it is believed that electromagnetic changes in the weather patterns activate the crystals inside.
