Fossil Marble Mortar & Pestle
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 fossil marble. Skilled artisans turn single pieces of stone on lathes to form beautiful and unique decor in order to support their families.
Marble is recrystallized limestone formed through changes in the earth's heat and pressure. Fossil Marble blends natural earth tones with small fossils. 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.
