Mortar & Pestle Pentacle - Gold & Black Soapstone
Black Soapstone Mortar & Pestle
A mortar and pestle is a tool used to crush, grind, and mix substances. The pestle is a heavy stick whose end is used for pounding and grinding, and the mortar is a bowl. The substance is ground between the pestle and the mortar. In every Wiccan, spiritualist, or herbalist’s kitchen is a mortar & pestle.
The pentacle is seen as symbolizing the five elements of earth, air, fire, spirit, and water. The circle surrounding the five-pointed star symbolized these elements working in unity together. It represents balance and harmony.
