Dual Weather Station

This unique dual storm glass & Galileo thermometer is a traditional way to forecast the weather with a modern twist!

The crystals inside the cloud-shaped glass respond to air pressure and atmospheric fluctuations to accurately predict the latest weather conditions.

In 1593, Galileo Galilei discovered that the density of liquids reacts predictably to changes in temperature. He invented a device that allowed temperature variations to be measured.

How The Galileo Thermometer works:
The sealed glass cylinder contains five floating glass bulbs. Each bulb has a calibrated, weighted metal tag.  The temperature is determined by the lowest floating bulb. When there is a bulb in the middle, the temperature should be read as between this degree and the lowest floating bulb.
Temperature range: 16-32⁰C

How to Predict the Weather:
Clear liquid: Bright and clear weather.
Cloudy liquid: Cloudy, possible thunderstorms & rain.
Small dots in the liquid: Humid or foggy weather.
Large flaky crystals: Cloudy skies, snow in winter.
Threads of crystals at the top: Windy weather.
Crystals at the bottom: Frost may be coming.

Crafted from high quality glass and sitting atop a sandy Beachwood base, this modern take on a historical marvel will compliment any home or office decor, adding a touch of seafaring charm to your living or work space. What a great conversation starter!

A neutral and appealing gift for those who are hard to buy for.
