Brittle star fossil, genuine or carved?

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I saw this brittle star fossil up for sale, and wanted to check if it was genuine. It says it is from Morocco, and from the Ordovician period. I know a lot of sea stars and brittle stars coming out of Morocco are carved. I am not as educated on echinoderm fossils as much as others. I've included pictures. What do you all think? Thank you!

IMO real ones, not carved.

They look real to me. 

There are indeed lots of fake ones about, but they're usually pretty obvious.
