Alumilite is a resin that you pour into a mold and then it goes into a pressure pot where it cures for a couple hours. The worst problem is that the cholla has to be baked as it has a zero tolerance for humidity. The stuff is expensive too.

Nice pepper grinder, have seen pens but never something that big. There’s people on etsy who sell the cholla at a decent price.
