How to Test for Pure Shilajit?

Updated: Apr 9

Authentic Shilajit is not only costly but also very rare to find. There are countless scams around the world in the name of shilajit. People have to struggle a lot to find the best and authentic shilajit. We'll discuss multiple tests on pure shilajit to check its authenticity.

Don’t buy shilajit if it is available in powder or capsule form because it may be laden with fillers or binders. Following reasons have caused a surge in fake products:

  • It’s hard to find shilajit because it is one of the rarest substances on the earth.

  • The demand for shilajit has increased around the world because of its effectiveness on the human body.

If you are new to shilajit, it will be difficult to check whether it is pure or not. This is the reason that you should be familiar with all the tests regarding pure shilajit. Some of the easy and readily available tests are as follows:


Pliability is indeed an easy and very effective test to check whether shilajit is pure or not. If the outside temperature is high, shilajit will stick to your finger. On the other hand, it will break like a stone when it is in solid form. This is because shilajit changes texture with change in temperature. This is the easiest test that can be performed because shilajit always responds to change in temperature.


Solubility is another parameter to check the purity of shilajit. Take one small piece of shilajit and put it in water. Shilajit will dissolve in water in no time, leaving no residues behind. As it completely dissolves in water, the colorless water turns to dark brown or reddish black. Upon drinking shilajit water, if you taste sandy substance, then it probably has fillers in it.

Bubbles on Heating

If you have a solid piece of shilajit and you want to test whether it is pure or not, then the flame test might be the best option. Pure shilajit doesn't catch fire but it burns like a candle and makes bubbles upon heating. Shilajit converts into ash soon after heating at high temperatures.

Alcohol Test

Keep in mind that pure shilajit doesn't dissolve in alcohol, but it makes small clots. However, if it dissolves in alcohol, there might be some additives in this herb.

Form and Odor

Shilajit is usually dark in color and sometimes it may be white (very rare). Pure shilajit has pungent smell because it is derived from rocks.
