This large mortar stands 5inches high weighs 8 1/2 pounds and has a 1 pint capacity. Cast iron construction is very durable and nearly indestructible.
Works great! I've found that it works best with single stones.... or up to 3 cherry sized rocks at a time if you are looking to pulverize the rocks. When i put in several rocks at a time..... it worked... but much slower and the broken bits begin to absorb and disperse the pestle's force.
