This is an excellent specimen of cubic magnetite from the one-time-find at the ZCA # 4 Mine in Balmat, NY IN 1993.  It is a superb floater specimen, with several dozen sharp cubic crystals to 8mm tip-to-tip, dusted with white talc.  The crystals have a bright metallic luster and are colored a dark metallic gray. Cubic magnetite crystals were never before seen, and have not been found since. And, the mine is closed now, so there will be no more of this exceptional and rare material.
