How to know if Gold Bhasma obtained is pure or still need purifiecation
Once the gold bhasma is prepared using this method, there are few tests which are done to check if the Gold bhasma is made as per accurate standards or not.
As per ras shastra - the ancient alchemy of india- there are certain tests through which a bhasma must pass for completion of bhasmikaran process which is as follows.
Rekhapuran: It is a test for the fineness of the metal in the bhasma. The test in done on the finger lines. A well-prepared bhasma should be so fine that it should settle in between the finger lines and should be just barely visible. This shows that the particles of metals are so fine that they are embedded in between finger lines like talcum powder.
Nischandrikaran: This is a test to check the loss of the metallic property of shine. An ideally prepared bhasma should totally lose its shine.
Apunarbhava: The bhasma should be prepared in such a way that it is irreversible in the sense that one cannot derive the metal back from it again.
Varitar: The fourth and the most important test is that a bhasma should float on water. Imagine heavy metal like mercury floating on water but a truly made Bhasma will float on water.
As you refer Apunarbhava property of bhasma which is key of power behind bhasmas, it says that in the process of bhasmikaran original element is lost it's metalic property and turns to some other form other then metal and you cannot recover the original element back in its metallic form. Since element is lost it's metallic form it's lose its toxicity also and turns to any other form which is helpful to human body.
Now a day's science have found the form of element which is present in bhasmas which gives original therapeutic effect and it's called ORME (Orbitally Rearranged Monoatomic Elements).
Scientific community is accepted this state of matter and inventor is awarded patents for it.
Nishandrikaran test is also shows that conversion of element from metallic form to some non metallic form which don't have any shine.
