Tips to Test Shilajit Authenticity and Purity

The purity and authenticity of Shilajit can be tested by the following methods. These methods help one to distinguish whether the Shilajit is 100 percent authenticated and pure.


When a particular amount of Shilajit is dissolved in water or milk, it gets dissolved in it completely leaving behind the trace of golden black colored tar liquid. If the paste of Shilajit does not dissolve completely, be sure that the compound is not original and pure.


Pure Shilajit always remains in its original form. It gets melted in the hands and becomes sticky. Also, if it is placed in the refrigerator, the Shilajit becomes extremely hard. It will shatter just like a glass, if it is struck with the hammer. But, while carrying out these processes, make sure to keep it in the plastic bag to prevent its loss of this valuable herbal formulation.


Shilajit will not burn as a candle or light in fire. If Shilajit is heated with mini torch, it forms bubble and gives rise to ash, which emanates outward. But, it won’t get burned. If it forms smoke, it is not original Shilajit. If it does not form smoke, it is Shilajit.


It is advised not to trust the powdered form of Shilajit. Most of these powdered forms have 2 to 30 percent of Shilajit. They are not pure in form. Also, they contain additional chemicals, preservatives and additives.

Great Taste

Pure Shilajit if consumed with milk, it has the taste of the black coffee. If it gives the taste of something else, then it is for sure not the pure Shilajit.

These are some of the essential tips to test the authenticity and purity of Shilajit. Make it a point to follow these tips strictly before using the Shilajit to enjoy all the medical benefits of this herbo-mineral compound.
