Pharmacy Symbols and Their Meanings



Mortar and PestleThe mortar and pestle has long been used as a pharmaceutical symbol. Pharmacists would use the mortar and pestle to crush and mix ingredients to cure diseases. The mortar and pestle are tools of traditional pharmacy, an easily recognizable visual motif.
