Storm Glass is quoted many times in Jules Verne's Extraordinary Journeys. In particular The Children of Captain Grant from 1867 and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Robur the conqueror or Two years of vacation.

Victor Hugo mentions the instrument in Les Travailleurs de la mer in 1866: "In that moment, the captain or the squadron commander who is lucky enough to have one of these storm-glasses whose inventor is unknown observe this glass under the microscope and take precautions against the south wind if the mixture has a melted sugar aspect, and against the north wind if the mixture is exfoliated in crystallizations like ferns thickets or fir woods .
