Prepare to be mesmerised by the MagnaGlass Desk Toy! Based on the classic hourglass, the MagnaGlass is filled with iron filings that form amazing shapes as they come close to the magnetic field in the base.
The MagnaGlass works in both directions, so once you have watched all the tiny pieces of iron fall to the bottom of the glass and make crazy shapes, flip the hourglass over and watch them all fall back again…it’s a little bit “other wordly” or perhaps “volcanic” looking, but really cool to watch as the filings appear to sort themselves into twisted and strange shapes; and you can’t just do it once! Anyone who comes near it is going to want to get their hands on it, so ask them form an orderly queue!
This is a great stress relief toy or desk accessory for the workplace or your home office to distract yourself from deadlines or bills! Just take some deep breaths, gaze into the hour glass and watch the iron filings form and re-form to feel the stress melt away as your concentration is absorbed by the weird shapes that appear mysteriously in front of your eyes.
When not being flipped over and over to make interesting iron formations, the MagnaGlass can sit on a desk or table as a decorative item.
A great idea as a Christmas or birthday gift for your boss or office friend, the MagnaGlass is not recommended for children.
