Looks like you may have a seam or plume agate fragment with some quartz or calcite druze on it. Really hard to tell from these two pictures though.

Put a few drops of vinegar on them and wait about 10-15 minutes to see if there's any slight fizzing. If there is, it's most likely calcite. If not, quartz.

You won't find plume agate in the St Louis area unless it's glacial float from up north.
