It's a little hard to make out in these photos. It could be damaged wood, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's something else.

Maybe a crushed piece of rudist?

took a couple of pics under my micro/macro camera and here is some of the cell structure...it is different than most of the wood I examine
first pic natural light second enhanced filtered it shows a cell pattern so it is plant but is it wood or ?

It has the slight look of Eocene Snakewood. Maybe a local will know if there is similar aged wood present in Brazos River gravel from west Houston. @JohnJ @Uncle Siphuncle

I don't think this is "snakewood".  If it was, it would be easily discernable in the end view of the original photo.  It does appear to be wood of some kind.
