This red marble mortar & pestle set is just stunning to look at, with its milky white veins swirling through a rich reddish brown color. The weight of the marble makes these sets really nice to work with too. At just under three pounds they are light enough to hold, while sturdy enough to work with while resting on a surface. Remember to always concentrate and visualize your intent while grinding herbs and resins for spells, incense, and even teas. We like to keep two mortar & pestles, one for magickal purposes and the other for culinary uses. Please allow for slight variations, as these are made from natural materials.
