A railroad spike topped with a pewter train pulling a car filled with pyrite can be the perfect addition to your collection!

The old-fashioned, pewter steam locomotive is tailed by a car of logs followed by the open wagon of sparkling fool's gold. 

Pyrite, or "fool's gold," has a chemical composition of iron sulfide and is found all over the world. The crystals can form in igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock as cubes, pyritohedrons or octahedrons. It is always found with a metallic luster and brassy color similar to gold, however its streak is black whereas gold's streak is yellow. 

If you have a love for all things trains, all things minerals, or all things miniature, this small, but hefty rail spike is just for you!
