The Institute manages and controls the operation of the system and translates and prepares content for websites and printed material. It presents itself to the general public at various events and in private meetings.
After ordering you will receive an e-mail with payment information. This is done exclusively to the Osmium Institute Slovenia’s bank account since the Institute is responsible for the financial flow and controls all transactions.
All packages that we ship to customers are insured in the amount of the purchase order. Insurance is included in the shipping costs. For larger orders, we also offer the possibility of personal delivery.
Osmium is present in the global market. In international trade, it should be emphasized that osmium imports are the responsibility of the regional osmium marketing and certification institutes of individual countries to provide maximum security for jewelers, investors, banks, and end-users.
Worldwide, osmium is only available through the selected partners and specialist traders who supply osmium exclusively with a certificate of authenticity and the eight-digit letter-number identification code. Both are issued by the “Osmium-Institut zur Inverkehrbringung und Zertifizierung von Osmium GmbH” in Germany.
Crystalline osmium is still largely unknown as it was considered a toxic element until 2014. This has changed with the crystallization process. Thanks to institutes and partners around the world, since then, osmium has been on a remarkable rise. With the introduction of the products of Hublo, Ulysse Nardin, and Tiffany the recognition is only growing.
Each piece of osmium is inserted into a secure, transparent box to protect it from possible damage and constant touch. The box is marked with its unique identification code, which ensures that you can always get all the information about that exact piece of osmium.
Osmium reflects the gamma rays most beautifully in natural light. However, since natural sunlight cannot always be guaranteed, we provide a special LED lamp for each customer which can always be recharged via USB connection.
You will find all the information materials and brochures as well as the safety data sheet on the provided USB stick. You can use the USB stick to get information about osmium to introduce osmium to your acquaintances or for personal matters.
OIC – Osmium Identification Code
Each piece of osmium is assigned a unique code upon certification at the institute in Germany before being transmitted through the institutes and partners to the market. This enables owners and potential buyers to access the certificate in the online database at any time, from anywhere, and to check the authenticity of osmium, as well as all its physical properties and the current price on the market.
OCC – Owner Change Code
OCC is a unique, one-time code that we need if we decide to sell osmium. It is similar to a two-step security key when signing up for an online bank. The new owner then automatically obtains the unique (new) OCC code that he will need for any further sale of osmium.
In your osmium box you will also find an information brochure in English (optionally in German, French or Slovenian), a stylish pen, and a promotional magnet with the chemical symbol Os.
