Pestle and mortar detail

A Pestle and mortar is an item that is used to crush items into fine powder. It is used mainly in Herblore, though it is used in many quests as well. On 9 November 2009 the pestle and mortar grinding code was rewritten. It can be bought from Herblore shops in cities such as Keldagrim, Taverley, and Entrana, from the Grand Exchange, or from Polypore Dungeon Supplies in the Polypore Dungeon. It can be used to grind several items in order to produce a dust. It can be stored in the toolbelt.


Note: A pestle and mortar cannot grind silver bars to silver dust. To get silver dust, grind a silver bar in the bone grinder used for the Ectofuntus.
