Is this fossil real? If so, what is it?

Hi there. I'm new to this forum and created an account just to ask about this fossil I found. It's really cool and was wondering if it's the real thing or fake. If anyone could identify this for me I'd very much appreciate it

It is an ammonite. If you found it, why would you think it fake? Any way these are rarely faked, it is real.

Welcome to the forum by the way! Hope you stick around, we have a few from the Netherlands here and there are a few sites in the country for finding fossils.

Where did you find it? It is a calcitized inner cast, or steinkern of an ammonite.

Hi Flyingpiglet,

 

I edited your post to include the photos.

Please avoid using links to outside photo sharing sites, as these are not permanent and so the photos tend to quickly be lost.  The Fossil Forum promotes educational aspects of fossil collecting, but threads become useless when links to the photos die.

We need a location like nearby city, county/province or geologic formation. 

There are "gravel bars" all over the world, and this tells us nothing useful in identifying Your ammonites.

I don't know where the gravel came from. The gravel I found it in was delivered by a company to my sisters backyard. She lives near Assendelft in the Netherlands, I reckon the gravel came from somewhere in that region.
