Estonia 2016 Centenary of shale oil mining in Estonia    

Issue date 15 June 2016

Industrial mining of oil shale began on 15 June 1916 on the Estonian territory. To commemorate this milestone of 100 years, Eesti Post has issued a special miniature sheet  with thermography printing 

Some websites / philatelic chatrooms describe the stamps have been printed with rock dust from the shale rock but the postal website has no mention of the same..till confirmation I have categorised this under stamps with thermography printing (even though the postal webpage mentions offset printing). It does not mention anything of the rough surface found on the miniature sheet.
