    Heliotrope, also known as bloodstone, imo. Pretty box, Florence?

    not sharp enough, I know. but I don't see it even with a magnifier.
    800 and Italian lozenge and importing company plus twice the French weevil for import.

    The Italian lozenge mark seems to have a fasces in the centre. That would mean 1934-44. So as you said, a bit later. The lozenge without fasces is 1944-68.
