I have this fossil here which at first glance I perceived to be some kind of seed, however I’m not sure. These are both from the same individual, just the positive and negative sides. It is just shy of half an inch long. It was found in the North Attleboro section of the Rhode Island formation

From these pictures I only see a pyrite formation. Possible to have some close ups of the features you are asking about?

The overall appearance reminds me of Cordaicarpus. This example is from the Pennsylvanian of Misssouri:

Are Cordaites leaves found in the bed?

Agreed. The geometry of it's perimeter is wrong for a natural pyrite crystal cluster.

Yes, Cordaites leaves are very common here

The formation does. It covers the whole Narragansett basin.
