Not like any pearl I have ever seen. You have not given us a picture so we can ascertain relative size, a common coin would give us some reference.

Is it spherical or round but somewhat flat?  Is it hard or somewhat pliable or soft as in squishy, as in can it be malformed by being squeezed or dented with a fingernail?  If you drop it on the table by say 10 inches by how much does it rebound or bounce?

  It does not look like a naturally occurring mineral specimen.  If it is pliable, it may be an eyeball lens from a fish.  Such are round, fairly hard but not glassy or mineral like, and occur in a variety of colors and opacity.  They also survive being "dried out" without much change.  Here is a picture of a fish eye lens for comparison.
