Is the type locality of Trimerite Harstigen or Langban! There are two pics of Trimerite with the Title "Type locality" but one is from Harstigen and one from Langban! What is the right TL?

Trimerite was first found by Flink at the Harstigen Mine in late 1889 (Flink 1890) and around 1920 at Långban by Finneman.

The finest Trimerite form very lustrous pink crystals to over 1 cm! One of my favorite minerals but really very rare!!!
