Cubanite-large twinned crystals
stock #18-AX-24-530
Henderson Mine, Chibougamou
Quebec, Canada
3.4 x 1.7 x 1.4 CM (miniature)
price: $2450


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.
Gold in Quartz
stock #17.1-717
Henderson Mine, Chibougamou
Quebec, Canada
3.8 x 3.7 x 2 CM (small miniature)
price: $950
Spring update

Gold in crystals, sheets and massive zones densely filling a veined Quartz matrix. From the Henderson mine in Chibougamou, this is an especially rich specimen from the locale that is famed for the worlds best Cubanites. Very few specimens of Gold have been preserved from this locality, Ex Glenn Petrie, and Les Hitchings collections. The Gold is visible on every surface of the matrix, and under magnification the richness and complex delicate structures are very elegant. Total weight of 34 grams I would guess the bulk of that weight is Gold.
