Very rare for Nepal, this totally gemmy Sphalerite is a nice find no matter what the location. The luster is excellent, as is the clarity. There are several sharp crystal faces, and even a long re-entrant that might be indicative of twinning. There are no formal listings of this location, so this discovery might be a one-off, making this Sphalerite even more of a rarity.
