Below is a video showing Stormglass animation by Johannes Falk from Flensburg in Germany showing the various crystal formations through a period of 146 days from February 11th. to July 6th. 2009



The Stormglass was, in so far as we know, first used in about 1750 by sailing ships to predict stormy weather.

The first proper report concerning its use on board a ship stems from the Darwin Expedition in 1831-1836. On December 27th
1831, Charles Darwin set off in the three-masted bark “HMS Beagle” under the command of Captain Fitzroy (1805-1865),
who throughout his career at sea and on land used the Stormglass. Fitzroy later became Admiral of the Fleet. Fitzroy was also a
meteorologist who later became director of the British Meteorological Office. For example, he wrote the famous “Weather Book”
popularising the art of forecasting the weather and communicating it to all strata of the population. At the height of his career
- and true to a family tradition - he cut his own throat!

The Stormglass is a reliable barometer. Everybody who has one will consult it daily to see what the weather is going to do in the
next 24 hours or so. Others use the Stormglass to predict when the fish are biting! Whatever its use, there is no doubt that the
Stormglass works. However, to date nobody has been able to provide a scientific explanation as to exactly why. Admiral Fitzroy,
head of the British Meteorological Office, believed that it was down to static electricity in the fields around us. A revolutionary
thought at the time!

For optimum use, place the Stormglass in a cool place, for example in a north-facing window or on a boat.
As the name suggests, the Stormglass is best at predicting stormy weather within the next 24- to 48-hour period.
The Stormglass does not completely replace the barometer - but it is a good supplement. Always remember to listen to the
weather forecast!

The Stormglass is a highly valued object for everyday use and is a popular gift; an example of genuine Danish craftsmanship.

Keep the Stormglass away from strong heat or direct sunlight as it may then cease to function.
