Can someone tell me if this fossil is real or not, thank you.

Looks real, although the center whorls appear carved (a common practice in some regions).

It's real, but as Kane mentioned, the inner whorls have been carved. The outer ones have probably been helped along a bit too. They do a lot of this in Morocco.

The preservation and coloration are pretty much dead on for Morocco.
