Why us?
Swap 21st-century precision for 19th-century brilliance with one of these fascinating Storm Bottles. First invented in the 1800s by Captain Robert Fitzroy aboard HMS Beagle during the Darwin Expeditions of 1831-36, the storm bottle uses crystal formation to predict the weather.

Simply place the bottle away from extreme temperatures (such as by a radiator or in full sunlight) and watch the crystals develop. Follow Fitzroy’s own observations (supplied) or compare the patterns to the weather outside to create your own forecast. 16cm

Looks good, appears to work
The product arrived about two weeks ago and after an initial settling period and a move to the window sill it appears to 'work'. It does say what each crystal formation means and as we are in London with cloudy and rainy skis, we mostly see some variation of the crystals (indicating either cloudy skies, windy weather, or snow which in London I can only assumes means rain). Have not experienced the murky liquid or clear liquid yet. We have placed it in a cool area as the instructions suggest.
The person I gifted it to really likes the look and thought it was quite cool (30 something woman into classic things).

disappointing
Despite putting it somewhere cool as per the instructions, I have yet to see any movement in the crystals. During its residency we have had high pressure, low pressure and several major storms. The crystals remain inert.

Unusual gift
Well made and packaged. Looks neat and attracts comments. Movement of crystals denoting weather types are not as pronounced as advertised but still a nice product.

Quirky
Bought this for my husband's birthday. He thinks it's very unusual. Just waiting for the crystals to settle to see how well it works, but it looks good on the mantelpiece.
