Granite Mortar and Pestle : Hand-carved of solid granite (the material preferred by top chefs), the mortar and pestle give you ultimate control in grinding and blending spices and herbs. The stone's weight enhances stability and makes pounding easier. Matte finish provides friction for efficient grinding yet won't absorb flavors and odors. The mortar exterior and pestle grip are textured for a firm, comfortable hold. 2-cup mortar: 6"Dia. x 4"H. Pestle: 7"-8"L (varies due to handcraftsmanship). Hand wash. Imported.
It is very heavy but attractive enough to leave on the counter. Exactly what a mortar and pestle should be.

I ended up throwing it away. The blades did not spin most of the time and it got pieces of herbs stuck in them. It seemed like a good idea for a tool but did not work.
