Meteorite dust on stamp: Austria

In 2006 Austria Post has Issued a stamp with Meteorite dust.  The dust came from a 19Kg stony meteorite found in Morocco in 2004.  The meteorite was crushed into a very fine dust and 0.03gms of that dust was hand affixed to the stamp using special adhesive.  I am very thankful to Mr.Sudhan for this unique material on stamp.  Nice addition to my Odd and Unusual stamp collection.
