NOTE:
Mineral collecting in the Central Eastern Alps ("Nationalpark Hohe Tauern", covering areas within Salzburg, Tyrol and Carinthia) is restricted by law since 2003: collection is generally forbidden in a central zone (except for scientific studies), and allowed under certain conditions within a border zone. The limits of these zones are given here: http://www.fg-traunstein.de/downloads/npht_zonierung.pdf (see also http://www.hohetauern.at/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=478&Itemid=48).
