Famous material - but rare and hard to obtain, the locality is on a restricted area of the army and field-collecting is prohibited. Even single crystals of 1cm size are rare and hard to obtain - and what we have here are crystals up to 33mm on edges and even set on dark galena matrix! A great rarity, very impressive assemble!
