As small as it appears with the indication, it might be some kind of mollusk or other small crustacean.  That, or vegetation of some kind that appeared a long time ago.  I guess it looks the same from any view, so that's probably the best view you could show us.  But, that is my opinion.

Thanks Metal_Inspector, It does kind of look like a tiny mollusk of some kind, I will try to post some different angle pics of it.

The second picture gave me more of a verification.  I found a picture that has a resemblance of your fossil.

It has the same features and shape as your fossil, so I would have to go with a mollusk.
