Onyx Mortar & Pestle (Fossil)
Lost World Caverns
A Mortar and Pestle is a kitchen device used since ancient times to prepare ingredients or substances by crushing and grinding them into a fine paste or powder. The mortar is a bowl, typically made of hard wood, ceramic, or hard stone.The pestle is a heavy and blunt club-shaped object. The substance to be ground, which may be wet or dry, is placed in the bowl of the mortar, where the pestle is pressed and rotated onto it until the desired texture is achieved. In modern times it is frequently used in the kitchen for herbs and spices as well as for grinding up medicines for animals.
Each Mortar and Pestle is carved from natural stone, as such each one is unique. There will be variations in the coloring from piece to piece. No two will be alike!
