Welcome to the Forum. :) 

Where was this found?

What size is it?

 

My first impression was a cephalopod or ammonite/ammonoid.

According to the Geological Bedrock Map, Muncie is located in Silurian aged sediments.

 

So this would be an imprint of the outer shell of an Orthocone Cephalopod.

Brightened your picture a bit:

Not sure on what Genus or Species this is, but it is cool looking with the detail showing on that.

Maybe someone more local will chime in.
