These unique whetstones are only known to form deep within the depths of Heavy Hole, where they are quite abundant and form gigantic crystalline structures that shine like gold, making them quite a sight to behold. Even the dust made from these whetstones shines brilliantly and will cause any food that it is used on to shine just as beautifully.
It is said to be able to sharpen any material in the world. When sharpening materials that have a high hardness level, a unique and edible golden dust comes out of the whetstone that can be used as a seasoning.
This unique edible dust is composed of several new kinds of amino acids and never-before-tasted top quality savory components. Toriko, Komatsu, and Melk the Second were one of the first known individuals to have tasted Melk Stardust; but kept the flavor a secret to themselves due to the fact that the taste of the spice was more or less addictive due to its taste directly stimulating hunger, and would overwhelm the flavor of just about any food it was seasoned with unless they compliment each other, such as the Jewel Meat or the Shining Gourami. According to Komatsu: when he and Melk the Second tried it, they couldn't stop licking it.
