 How to Test Shilajit Purity and Authenticity? 
There are so many tests explained to know purity of shilajit and to know standardized extracts of it so that you will get the confidence that you have real one with you. These below mention tests will let you know whether compound is 100 percent shilajit or not…

Solubility – Pure Shilajit get dissolves completely in plain or warm water. When shilajit powder is poured over a glass of water, its particles start dissolving slowly in the water and within very short time of period it gets fully dissolve and give black golden color to water. Like this we can make out that shilajit is pure, if it doesn’t mix properly in water, it is not pure one and not of good quality.

Insolubility – Pure shilajit is not soluble in vodka or alcohol. When shilajit powder is mixed with alcohol, it doesn’t not dissolve or mix properly with it and form some clots or so. This is another easy method to know shilajit’s purity.

Can absorb heavy metals – pure shilajit has the capacity to absorb heavy metals like parad or mercury. Take 1 tsp. of pure shilajit powder in a bowl, add little bit of mercury and 1 tsp. of water to mix. Mix well for some time, you will notice slowly mercury will break down in to small particles. Mix it for 5 min or so and you will find that whole mercury is mixed completely with shilajit.

Flame – When pure shilajit comes in contact with fire or flame, it does not burn or light but start bubbling to produce an ash like substance at the end. This is again an easy test to know shilajit purity.

Pliability – Pure shilajit will always hold its form and not separate into clumps. It can melt in hand and become sticky, goosy substance and becomes very hard when kept in refrigerator.
