This mortar and pestle has been hand carved from grey palewa stone and finished with a beautiful floral engraving on both the mortar and pestle. Palewa is a common Indian soapstone which has been used for carving for centuries. The high talc content of soapstones such as this make it relatively soft and ideal for carving.
