WORLD'S LARGEST CRYSTAL STRUCTURE MODEL

TINY CRYSTAL - HUGE MODEL

The official homepage of a monument of science

Explore the nanocosm and experience
the structure of materials essential to our daily life
- magnified almost one BILLION times!

This homepage informs about the largest section of a crystal's atomic structure ever to be physically modeled true to scale in 3D - officially registered with Guinness Book of Records. This project is organised by crystallographer/geoscientist and science communicator Dr. Robert Krickl to serve didactic purposes, to communicate the beauty of nature and introduce science to general public - especially young people.

A project under the auspices of and in partnership with the International Union of Crystallography
