I’m looking for some information regarding this crinoid. It looks typical of the fossil crinoids I’ve seen  from Morocco but I’d really appreciate a more learned perspective. A family member is thinking of acquiring this specimen. Only photo I have unfortunately. Thanks.

This looks fake. I would pass. 

The stem and "arms" look carved.

Run away!  Carved, as Fossildude said.

As you can see, I agree with my predecessors.

Yikes that one could have a spot in the "Fake Hall of Shame"

I’m going to tell them to definitely pass on this one.

Indeed.

That looks absolutely awful.

Thanks Tidgy’s Dad!  I really didn’t like what I was looking at in the photo either but I needed some expert analysis to better advise the person considering this specimen. Really appreciate your help!
