An excellent specimen of iridescent pale brassy Cubanite from Henderson No. 2 mine at Chibougamau in Qu├ębec, Canada.  This mine exploits an anorthosite-hosted copper-gold deposit and is famous for its Cubanite crystals, formed in late-stage Calcite lined shear-fractures.  The crystals are up to 1.7 x 1.3 x 0.4 cm, the larger crystals displaying strongly chevroned growth patterns across their faces.  The Cubanite overgrows and pervades a mixed Quartz and Cubanite matrix.  A rare sulphide occurring in fine displayable crystals and from the Dr Josef Clemente Collection of southern Germany.
