Event Name KRISTALLE @ Vienna
Start Date 4th Oct 2014
End Date 5th Oct 2014
Duration 2 days

The exhibition "Crystals - Artwork of Nature" (original title: "KRISTALLE - Kunstwerke der Natur") will take the visitors on an exciting journey through crystals and the structure of matter using models and elaborated computer graphics. In the spirit of the International Year of Crystallography 2014, this exhibition aims at disseminating crystallography and the knowledge of the structure of matter to the general public, and providing information on history and application of crystallography.

The exhibition tours through all of the federal states of Austria. Some exhibits are now shown at the well known mineral fair "Mineralium" at the Stadthalle in Vienna on the 4th and 5th of October.

Furthermore, at this occasion, it will also be possible to get the Austrian commemorative postage stamp celebrating IYCr (which is shown at http://www.iycr2014.org/events/postage_stamps/austrian-stamp). It was produced to honour the famous Austrian mineralogist and crystallographer Felix Machatschki. There will be a limited emission of the special envelope with special postmarks adapted to time and place of the event.
