Comments about UncommonGoods Magnetic Sand Hourglass:

I bought this as a gift for my fiancé for Christmas. I was going to buy him a watch to signifying our time together but he went out and bought himself a watch not knowing my plan. I was looking for something similar and found this and it's perfect. It looks great sitting up on a shelf on our wall.

Cool concept cheap glass

By 

from Rancho Cucamonga, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about UncommonGoods Magnetic Sand Hourglass:

Really cool concept but breaks very easily. I was careful with it and it still broke. Never have the iron side anywhere close to magnet or attraction will almost certainly shatter the thin glass.

      Such a fun piece for an office. This was for my husband. He's excited to bring this to his office. It's very addicting to turn upside down to watch the metal created a beautiful image.

        Best Uses

          Comments about UncommonGoods Magnetic Sand Hourglass:

          Was cracked when box arrived. The electromagnetic part is cool for a second but doesn't look like the picture (which seems like much more). If you leave on stand too long it cracks (in our case it was already cracked so it actually popped into pieces). Also not much you can do with a minute tmer...most games are 3 minutes so overall was useless. Lasted less than an hour with teenage son

          Service and delivery comments:

          Cracked when opened...son wanted to see what it would do...was completely broken in lass than an hour but I did not return or complain because I did not know if broke easy because crcked or if he did something. I will say it was only on base less than 5 minutes before it popped into pieces.
