⌛︎Meaning and Description

The emoji ⌛︎ shows an hourglass with a narrow neck in the middle, allowing fine sand to flow from the top chamber to the bottom. The bottom bulb of this hourglass is filled with sand, indicating that time🕡️ has passed or run out. The color of the hourglass varies across platforms, but it is usually brown or yellow.

The hourglass is a device that measures time by the flow of sand from one glass bulb to another. Before the advent of modern clocks and watches, people relied on the steady flow of sand in an hourglass to track the passage of minutes or hours.
