Mortar and Pestle

acd123 | Apr 11, 2008 06:56 AM

I bought a marble mortar and pestle last week in Toronto's Chinatown. It was $11.99. I''ve used it few times. I've noticed that there is now a fine white dust coming off the pestle and the bottom of the mortar, which I assume is marble dust. I assume that's a bad thing.

Is my assumption correct?
