The molcajete makers use the softer rock for toys and for their sons to practice on when they are learning. Then put in rice Pestle of mexico grind in batches until it comes clean. Look for a tejolote that is long enough for your fingers to grab when you have the top in the palm of your hand.
Or put another way, the surface should be rough but not uneven since the latter impedes grinding and makes it more impossible to cure the molcajete.
Stores need their markup. Thus all those Mexican recipes that start with chopping garlic, onion and tomato, or the pico de gallo sauce often thought of as a Mexican sauce north of the border, I suspect to come from the Spanish tradition in Mexican cooking.
Although the tejocotes vary in form they are all longer than they are wide and have a broad base for grinding. The rock from which they are made varies in porosity and hardness. So the fact that molcajetes are made of a rock with pores instead of smooth marble or granite is not an unfortunate accident.
It can be flat or rounded but should be well defined. Even many Mexican families have them on the kitchen counter as a reminder of bygone days, using the blender to prepare their sauces.
For now, though, for most of us, the first mortar and pestle we encounter is likely to be the standard marble one, polished smooth inside and out. What will break up the skins of both red and green chiles, say, is grinding or shearing them laterally along a rough surface. There molcajetes are mainly used for preparing fairly small amounts of sauces salsas.
