Ambika S.*, Rakshitha D. and Gazala Hussain

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Minerals are basically impure in their native ore form. Shodhana is the process to purify the metals or minerals by adopting different techniques. Sphatika (Potash alum) is one among the uparasa mentioned in Rasashastra (Indian alchemy). The purified or shodhita Sphatika is said to be useful in kushta roga, netra roga and also as vrana ropaka. There are different methods mentioned for shodhana of Sphatika. Materials and Methods: Ashuddha Sphatika was taken and subjected to shodhana in two different methods and an attempt was made to compare the physico-chemical properties of shodhita Sphatika done by puta method and open method of heat. Observations and Results: The samples of shodita Sphatika by two different methods were subjected to organoleptic characters like appearance, odour, taste and physico-chemical parameters like pH, total ash and acid insoluble ash. The obtained results were discussed in the present paper.

Keywords: Sphatika, mineral, shodhana, Potash alum.
