Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 5.5 x 2.5 cm
Deception Bay, Nunavik, Northern Quebec, Canada

This is a rarity that appeals from multiple levels as a specimen, that happens to be both beautiful for the species on a worldwide basis AND significant for Canada at the same time. I had never seen the like. It comes from a small, remote mining district called Deception Bay (map at: http://www.traveljournals.net/explore/canada/map/m796543/deception_bay.html), possibly from the Raglan Mine. Situated in the Nunavik territory of Northern Quebec, Canada, this is a nickel and copper mining district. This is the only piece I have ever seen or heard of from here, and it happens to be a cabinet display piece with incredible blue color. I would not believe it myself, though, if I had not gotten it from the Canadian rarities expert and dealer, Jon Levinger. It came out of an old Canadian collection. Joe Budd Photos.
