Seven bhavana given to manashila with each swarasa. Finaly three different samples of shodhita manashila were prepared. All the observation during shodhana procedure was noted and documented. Raw manashila and three samples of shodhita manashila subjected to analytical study like specific gravity, moisture content, solubility, PH. Physico chemical analysis of Raw and three samples of shuddha manashila contributes to set standards for standardization. In shodhita manashila percentage of As increased & S decreased. 80 % reduction in particle size (0.71 microns), pH 12.5, Moisture 1- 3%, Sp. Gravity 1.003 noted. Triclinic & monoclinic crystal structure with variations in dimensions. As, S and other trace elements noted. Particle size reduced, crystal structure altered.
