I am trying to track down a science fiction story that I read in the mid-1970s and vaguely recall. This was a short story that was in a compilation book in my school library. The details that I remember are at the beginning of the story.

There is a small velvet box with a gem fixed inside of it (possibly an opal or pearl). I believe that there are two characters, a brother and a sister. There is some interaction where the characters are sitting on a park bench examining the velvet box.

I believe that the box is used for either time travel or transportation. There may also be a mysterious stranger that guides the characters through the use of the box.

I don't have much more recollection of the story, but please feel free to ask any clarifying questions and I'll try to assist.
