I agree. Appears that the lack of calcium is breaking the shell down. Looks like a ramshorn shell.

Empty snail shell. Fish it out (or should that be "snail" it out?).

Or just leave it be and tell your friends & family about your alien egg. As they lean in to look at it, open your hand and grab their face like a Facehugger. Scare the you-know-what out of them.

All it takes is one assassin. They don't eat the shell. Considering you are mentioning now that you have them, it can be nothing else but a shell. If you look a the center of the shell, it spirals. There are only two things that I can think of that are shaped like this. A snail shell and a cinnamon roll.

I also am seeing the clear shell of a ramshorn snail. Look at it from different angles, and you might be able to tell more about it.
