Teneebian amethyst case

A Tenebian amethyst

A Tenebian amethyst was a highly valuable gemstone.

In 2161, Thy'lek Shran was accused by some former associates of his that he had stolen a valued Tenebian amethyst. He came to Enterprise for help when they kidnapped his daughter, Talla, until he returned it. T'Pol was able to manufacture a very realistic fake, that they'd never be able to identify.

Shran and T'Pol went to Rigel X to exchange the amethyst for Talla. The exchange was successful, as the fake amethyst actually contained a strobing light that would stun anyone looking directly at it, which gave Enterprise's MACOs time to attempt to capture the pirates. (ENT: "These Are the Voyages...")

In the final draft script of "These Are the Voyages...", the fake Tenebian amethyst in that episode was stated to be "blue, golf ball-sized".
The Tenebian amethyst prop, as well as the silver-colored box accompanying it, was sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [1]
