Green, Anna Katharine: The Amethyst Box, v.1, 31 August 2008.

Anna Katharine Green [Mrs Charles Rohlfs] (1846–1935)
The Amethyst Box (1905)

A mystery novelette.
On the eve of his wedding, during a house-party, Mr Sinclair shows the ladies a small antique Venetian box, carved from a single amethyst. Inside is a vial, containing a drop of the deadliest poison known to Man. The box goes missing. Can it be that one of the ladies is either suicidal or murderous? The next morning a woman is found dead…

(There’s a moral here. Wash all your bottles. Hygiene saves a lot of trouble all round.)

I made this up from scans at The Internet Archive. I have edited, reformatted and included the two original pictures and found the original cover.
