Rosin or Resin? It is a cast miniature in plastic (Epoxy, Polystyrene?) resin. They are meant to go into corner curio cabinets. It was likely sold as a souvenier of Moscow.

The button/pin says "Kolomenskoye" across the top, and Muscovite ("Moskvya") on the left. The photo is too dark to see the word (numbers?) preceding Muscovite.

A quick Goolge search reveals information you can read for yourself, including the Wikipedia article (first hit).

NOTE: I do not speak Russian at all. Transliteration, however, is nearly trivial given the similarly (by Cyril's design :-0) of the Cyrillic alphabet to Greek.
