The exhibition CRISTALES was designed and launched on the occasion of the International Year of Crystallography. It aims to convey a fresh insight into crystallography by placing an emphasis on the most appealing aspects and the most important contributions of crystallography to society, including new materials, solar energy, drug research, electronic materials, cosmetics and the design of new chemicals to improve industrial processes in various fields. CRISTALES has been specifically developed for schools and universities and is composed of 14 posters, all shown and thoroughly described in the paper.
