Mortar missing its pestle

Hi, I've been reading the M&P threads a bit....

The local antique shop has a marble mortar for a dollar, but no pestle. Should i buy it and use the wooden pestle from my wooden set?

The marble one's very familiar; you've all seen it. Heavy, about 6-7 inches wide at top. Concentric, rather shallow scoring at the bottom. Wish I could find an orphan marble pestle. I do appreciate the value of a heavy pestle.

Kind of an idle question, as it's something I don't actively NEED. Got the wooden African one, plus an electric spice grinder.
