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.
Cropped the photo.
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:
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?
