This elegant Black Sand Timer has a twisting glass design and makes a fabulous decorative piece for the home. This freestanding hourglass sand timer is filled with approximately 30 minutes worth of black sand. However it’s not intended to be used as an accurate timepiece, but more of an ornament to be admired and hypnotised by, because let’s face it, there’s just something about sand timers that invite you to turn them over and watch the sands of time mesmerizingly fall through. But hey, you can still use this timer as a guide to when half an hours up – just remember to keep an eye on it though as it won’t go ‘beep’ when the last grain of sand has fallen through!
Although this is more decorative and stylish than practical, the black sand hourglass is still a useful tool to have in your kitchen or elsewhere in your house. It's the kind of retro style home accessory that people notice, admire and want to touch.
