Tungsten cube's mass (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

weight

Here is my best explanation:

'mass' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'tungsten cube's' is the subsidiary indication.

'tungsten' becomes 'w' ('W' can be a synonym of 'tungsten').

'cube' becomes 'eight' (8 is a cube number).

'w'+'eight'='weight'

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for weight that I've seen before include "Heavy object", "Pressure", "gives a sense of oppression", "Trouble", "Mass", "Heaviness", "Attach importance to", "The property of heaviness, measure of mass", "burden" and "Significance".)
