A metate is the traditional hand carved stone too used for grind corn, spices and even chocolate.  We typically stock three sizes of this tool including a small, a medium and a large.  The average dimensions are shown below.  These are handmade grinding tools so actual size will vary from piece to piece.

Each metate is still hand carved of the highest quality "negro" stone. The metate sits on 3 legs and slants down so ingredients can be captured into a container placed at the end of the metate. The craftsmanship is excellent.  

Color: Stone dark grey to black, some porosity common to the negro stone. This is desirable because it provides a very rough, grindable surface.
