This unique hourglass timer swaps boring old sand for fine magnetic filings. Turn it over, and as the magnetic filings succumb to gravity and stack up on a magnet in the base, they produce artistic patterns and structures. A new one every time.

The hourglass itself is freestanding, and can be used on it's own as a traditional sand timer as well as on the magnetic base. The rare-earth magnet contained in the base is powerful, and you'll be intrigued by how the ferrous material interacts with the magnetic field.

The Magnetic Sand Hourglass is a fun desktop diversion, and a great way to limit time. Because of its compact size it can easily be kept on small shelves, desks and tables without taking up too much room. Great for use in the classroom.
