Is anyone familiar with Admiral Fitzroy's "Storm Glass"?
My daughter is in her third year of studying for a meteorology degree and I thought it would be fun to make one for her for Christmas. Getting the ingredients though is a bit of a challenge.
I have been looking at the recipe on this website:
Some of it is easy to find, like the ethanol and distilled water. Potassium nitrate used to be easy to get at a druggist, but they don't have it nowadays at Walgreens. I don't know where to find the ammonium chloride or camphor either. Does any one have any suggestions?
