Description 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, experiments 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. This tour stop takes place at Bregenz, the capital city of Vorarlberg at the shores of Lake Constance bordering Germany and Switzerland. There will be a special focus on communicating crystallography to school children.

Furthermore, at this occasion, it will also be an emission of 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.
