Looks like it might be something fossilized.

Where was this found? More images (on a flat surface, more angles, and something like a ruler to indicate scale) will help provide the necessary context to attempt an identification.

Some info on the find might help.

I found it in some pea rock in northwestern Iowa. It just looks unusual to me. In the same pea rock I often find amber, petrified wood, coral, and small aquatic fossils.

First of all, welcome to the forum!

 

Secondly, could it perhaps be a platycerid gastropod facing inwards, towards the centre of the rock?  It kind of reminds me of one I found at Hungry Hollow this past summer:

Hi,

 

Please dont use a coin as a scale. Only americans know its size ! The best way is a real scale... Or size in text.

Sorry, but the images are still too fuzzy to even allow a good guess. Is this commercial pea rock from a retailer's or did you find it in a driveway or a gravel pit?
