I now own a small stone one that I use for grinding spices. I used to own a larger marble one, but gave it away during a move. I really use this tiny one more than I ever used the larger marble one.

I have a marble one that I really love to use. There is something about really getting into preparing spices and garlic, etc.

I have two large marble ones (gorgeous green one and a white with gray streaks) from India, one wooden one from Egypt--not very good, and a Japanese mortar and pestle that I bought at a local kitchen shop. The Japanese is the most efficient as the grinding surface is made of coarse cross hatchings to rub spices, etc., against and actually works better than a smooth marble or wooden surfaces--but I use them all. Can't bring myself to get rid of them.
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

I believe that it's made of marble that has a rtough surface on the inside.
