Is this a gastropod? The sample is 1.5 cm long.

I haven't been able to wrench it from the rock yet, but here's the other end in case it helps.

You would likely destroy the fossil and have a broken steinkern anyway unless you took great pains to prepare it.

Don't try to remove it from the matrix until you have another, better preserved specimen to take its place in case of "oops".
