Postage stamps and special envelopes

on the project, for those interested in philately

A special Austrian postage stamp is issued on the occasion of the project, which will be available at each exhibition site of the model with limited special envelopes and stamps. In addition to a photo of the mineral halite it shows a portion of its atomic structure, which is is the one illustrated in the worldrecord model. In German language you can read the name of the country Austria ("Oesterreich") and a reference translating to "the largest crystal structure model in the world".

Number of stamps printed: 500 (in sheets of 20 stamps, with logos of Austrian Post and National Printing Service)
