The Mortar & Pestle has been used for centuries to grind herbs and spices for cooking, healing or aromatherapy. Each piece has been exquisitely hand crafted in Western Pakistan from a single piece of metamorphic onyx. Skilled artisans turn single pieces of stone on lathes to form beautiful and unique decor in order to support their families.
Rainbow Onyx is a form of agate and it forms mostly in cavaties of eruptive rock or lava. The bands have multiple layers that show a variety of colours. The beautiful polished surface of this mortar & pestle will stay shiny though the grinding surfaces will dull over time. We recommend cleaning with a damp cloth. Please never place your mortar or pestle in the microwave or dishwasher. Measures 4" in diameter.
