Victorian Era Pin - Purple Stone

This is a gorgeous old brooch, dating to perhaps 1895. It measures about 1 1/4" across, but stands out despite its petite size. The center stone is a rich purple color, and while we suspect it may be an amethyst, we are not sure. It could just as easily be glass, and the item is priced as if it is glass. The setting is lovely - it appears to be rolled gold plate over a gold toned base metal. The clasp is an old c-clasp, but it does secure well as the pin has a lot of spring and the shape of the clasp seems to catch and hold the pin well. The only markings on this pin are on the clasp, and are difficult to read, but they appear to be the initials C.T.
