A beautiful housewarming gift, this exquisite mortar and pestle set in white onyx is handcrafted by an artisan family in Southern Mexico, who have been working with fine marble for over three generations.

The white onyx is sourced from the state of Puebla, and handmade with rustic tools before being smoothened by hand.

Materials: 

  • White onyx, with a polished finishing.

  • Due to the nature of natural stone, the pattern, colour and details of each piece is different.

  • As they are individually made by hand, there may be some variations in shape and size. No two pieces are exactly the same.

Dimensions:

  • Mortar measures 7cm x 4cm, while pestle is 7cm long.

  • This miniature size is ideal for grinding spices, herbs or for crushing medications.

Care Instructions:

  • If you will be using this piece for food service, wash thoroughly with soap and hot water before usage.

  • Wash by hand only, do not clean this piece in the dishwasher.

  • To season the set, grind a small handful of white rice into the piece.
