Mortar & Pestle go back during the Ancient times. Can be used for grinding your food into paste or like the Ancient people used them to grind up their dry herbs for Magickal workings. This one is the perfect size for your Altar or on your counter top. It is best if you were going to use them for food that you should always have an extra one for your herbs. These are white ceramic and measure 2" 1.5" high × 2.5" wide. Come as a set.
