This beautiful fossil mortar and pestle is black and white with scalloped top. Use this implement to grind spices and to fragrance orange and lemon peels. It's the perfect size mortar to break up dried chili pods. Just imagine how wonderful your kitchen will smell when you mash ginger into a paste to use to make a pumpkin pie or gingerbread. The difference in taste when you ground ground fresh garlic with your mortar and pestle versus using bottled garlic salt in guacamole will be much appreciated by your family and guests.
