Large cabinet specimen personally collected in 1970 by RJ Waidler. It is a practically impossible locality to obtain. The Galena crystals form cubo-octahedrons and are partially covered by bladed, cockscomb Marcasite crystals to 3mm. The matrix is a dark reddish brown Sphaleite. Excellent specimen.
