Bounds for the elastic properties of aggregates of cubic crystals are calculated from the single crystal data according to the scheme developed by Hashin and Shtrikman. These bounds are better by an order of magnitude for most materials than those provided by the Voigt and Reuss averages. Values of rigidity, Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, and velocity of both compressional and shear waves are tabulated for about 900 cubic specimens.
