The cylindrical ampoule is the most frequently used shape for Stormglasses, and it was the only Stormglass shape used in the 19th century. Common cylinder diameters are 20 - 30 mm (0.8 - 1.2 inches), and lengths from 90 - 170 mm (3.5 - 6.7 inches) - these sizes ensure the best crystal growth. We can however custom make cylinders to order, but some larger sizes can adversely affect the crystal growth.
