Scuba divers as the printer's colour markers on the selvedge (margin) of the new $10 Canada whale stamp (available now at your local Post Office, comes as a single stamp or in a mini-sheet of 2 stamps).

And on each stamp when viewed under Ultraviolet (UV) light with a special long-wave UV lamp for stamp collectors.

Puzzler,

That is a really beautiful stamp. I'll have to see about adding that one to my son's collection.

I just happened across this posting and thought I would provide links to the Scuba stamps and cards in my collection. It is very extensive. I have scanned them to my facebook page. I am constantly adding scans. If you hover your mouse over any of the images, it should give you the information about the stamps. Most will give you the Scott catalog number and year of issue. Have fun. Here are the album links:

Ikaite is the mineral name for the hexahydrate of calcium carbonate, CaCO3·6H2O. It is only found in a metastable state, and decomposes rapidly once removed from near-freezing water. Here is an image of a stamp depicting a scuba diver viewing ikaite towers in Ikka Fjord, designed by Danish graphic artist Morten Stürup, engraved by Lars Sjööblom, and issued by Greenland on June 20, 2005, Scott No. 457, Facit No. 433.

This souvenir sheet is part of a Guyana 2012 release for UNEP World Environment Day. It has a very beautiful design depicting earth represented by a blue sphere surrounded, as well as filled, with silhouettes of all sorts of creatures - swimming, crawling and flying; and then there are also human being doing various activities like sailing, cycling and scuba diving!
