The Mortar is needed to craft the Rainbow Dye, but there will be other things that will need this tool. It is also very decorative for a kitchen or a laboratory.
The Mortar was first designed as a decoration. In fun, we made it usable to craft Redstone from Redstone Ore or Lapis from Lapis Ore, but not with luck, just one for one. Then we decided to use it for our Rainbow Dye, and there will probably be more uses in the future.
