Here is one just listed that appears to look a lot like yours. I like the way the silver body on yours was assembled better than this one..

Also this one has a missing stone and the front and reverse is only enamel.

Does not specify the type of metal.

I forgot to ask if yours is silver, brass or copper ?

They are starting the bidding out at 99.00.

Oh.., after asking a few lapidary friends, I think it has been decided that the stone on the front and reverse on your bottle is likely Calcite Onyx.
