How does it work?
A storm glass works on the principle that temperature and pressure affect solubility, sometimes resulting in clear liquid; other times causing precipitants to form. The liquid within the glass is a mixture of several chemicals including, distilled water, ethanol, potassium nitrate, ammonium chloride, and camphor. The exact method by which the storm glass works is not fully understood. Explanations include changes in barometric pressure, changes in temperature, and the effects of electricity across the glass. Nevertheless, the crystals in a storm glass are constantly evolving, and they are said to indicate the following weather conditions:
- Properties of liquids and precipitates
- Crystal formation
- Weather forecasting
- History of weather forecasting and seafaring
