Green Marble Mortar and Pestle
This product is EXCELLENT!
I bought this item for my daughter-in-law as an upcoming Christmas present. I mailed it to her immediately, wrapped in Christmas paper, so she would not go buy one herself.
She absolutely loves it ! ! ! ! !

It looks nice on the outside
However, the inside is poorly finished and not really suitable for serious work.

Received this as a housewarming gift for my small apartment. In addition to using this as a mortar and pestle, I use it to make tostones (flattened plantains) because it's so heavy.

Used for grinding reagents
Excellently crafted, easily used. I used it to grind several substances for an experiment and it served very well.

Looks nice and works good
I was a little concerned after reading the review before mine about not being able to crush flaxseed, like it's an inferior product or something. So mine just came delivered today, and coincidentally, I've had a whole bunch of flaxseed sitting in my cupboard for months. The first thing I did after I got it was watch a short video on how to use a mortar and pestle (I've never used one before), and then dig out the flaxseed. It actually ground up really nice. I did have to push a little hard, but not too bad so I'm not complaining. Like I said, this is my first time using one, so maybe that's probably has something to do with it. So I just thought I'd put that out there in case anyone gets worried like I was. Also it seems to be really nice quality overall, especially for the price.

Good product for other uses
I purchased this specifically for crushing flax seeds, but could not accomplish that with this mortar and pestle. It is probably a good product for other uses, but was of no use to me. I returned it to the store.

Just what I needed!
This was just what I was looking for to grind up dried cayenne peppers. It's the perfect size at 4 inches across and 4 inches deep and can grind peppers quickly to a fine powdery form. I highly recommend it.

This was a much needed item for crushing meds for my handicap child. Other crushers would strip or just tear up. This works perfectly!
