    I think I have seen that in a perfume bottle; were there other pieces as well? Guess I need to do some kind of research; thanks for giving me an idea - what do you think this might have been for, if anything? Thanks!

    I have seen crystal from china, (some I have ) including thicker pieces which are in this color. Indoors ( indoor lamp light) it changes to purple color. This is normal for that type of crystal which is very clear with no bubbles. It looks like a match holder.

    you might try to contact CW poster munciepots as he is very knowledgeable about Ruba Rombic glass, which this seems to mimic:
