A decorative alternative to modern timekeeping. Through the clear glass you can see the pink sand run slowly down, and when you flip the hourglass the first sand grains can be heard landing on the bottom.
A surprising and playful decoration that will be a unique eyecatcher in your home.

Great ItemVerified ReviewerLove this. Bought this to decorate my unit in my living room .5
Nice ornament, shame about the time...Verified ReviewerI only bought this as a decoration, after previously buying a pink one also from IKEA.
They are glass and the grains flow smoothly. This green one is more sandy looking in grain, whereas the pink hex one i already have is some kind of beads.
I just wish IKEA had done them as 3 minute timers and were more exact, so as could actually be used and useful.
As these two I have are 90seconds - pink and 9m:30seconds - green. So hardly consistent hence only 3*s.3
Beautiful decorationVerified ReviewerThe green one is a gorgeous colour. Great decoration, and watching the sand trickle down is very calming. If anyone is curious, I timed mine - 7mins 45secs.5

What is glass?
Glass is mainly made of sand, soda and lime melted at a high temperature. Tempering or various additives gives you extra-strong and impact-resistant glass that in some cases can be taken straight from freezer to oven without cracking. A big benefit is how glass can be recycled over and over without the quality deteriorating. Also, a lot less energy is needed to melt recycled glass compared to new raw materials. Our goal is to eventually use only recycled glass in our range.
