Like Sands Through An Hourglass - But Magnetized For Extra Interest
The Magnetic Sand Hourglass is a fun desktop diversion and a great addition to the other interesting items you keep on your desk (come on, admit it)
The magnetic sand adds an interesting dimension to a vintage standby.
Flip it over and watch the grains of iron stack up in seemingly impossible formations thanks to a magnet embedded in the wooden base.
The craggy configurations of the iron filings eventually build into an ordered hemisphere with a spiky surface. Now you can add an interesting focal point to those long phone calls you must sit through at work.
The timer duration is approximately 35 seconds.
