Cubanite-large twinned crystals (Ref: AX-24-530)

Henderson Mine, Chibougamou, Quebec, Canada
34mm x 17mm x 14mm
minID: RH1-3GQ
Unusually large, sharp lustrous and very well defined Cubanite. Although Cubanite has been found at several locales in the world, the only source of fine crystals was the Henderson Mine, now long closed. There will never be any more of these which are by far the worlds best Cubanites. This specimen has a super dispaly face with very sharp striations and clear twinning. Some contacting on the back but the front displays very well. Specimens of this quality can only be had from old collections being recycled, and this size is almost never seen.
Data last checked on 20th Sep 2022 - specimen may no longer be available
