The coverage of  native lead is quite large, to be about 40mm long and quite thick. This locality has produced the finest of the species, nothing has come near to rivaling it, in the 68 years since the pit closed (Harstig pit, Langban mine) Ex Neal Wintringham, Consulting Mineralogist, Mountainside, N.J.
