About us

With the introduction of osmium as the last, rarest and most valuable precious metal into the world of tangible assets, the Osmium World Database was established internationally in cooperation with the customs agencies of the USA, Canada and Australia.

To carry out the scientific preparation of the samples and the scan, the Osmium Institutes were established in 30 countries around the world. For this reason, the headquarters in Murnau am Staffelsee has a laboratory for microscopy, surface scanning and material analysis.

Customers who wanted to pay osmium in gold, silver or platinum used the material analysis to have their goods valued and exchanged for osmium.

As activities expanded, other methods of analysis were added to the offerings. Today, the Osmium Institutes have the most modern technology and extremely fast processes, as well as an exceptional service for precise and fast analysis.

We look forward to working with you!
