Praval Bhasma is unique preparation which is traditionally used as antipyretic, antiulcer, antacid and treatment of bone metabolic disorders associated with calcium deficiency. A study was conducted to analyze the fineness, proper preparation and quality of the Bhasma using organo-leptic and Namburi phased Spot Test (NPST). NPST method is newly introduced in the field of Ayurvedic pharmaceutical standardization accepted by CCRAS. The Namburi phased Spot Test (NPST), a spot test based on chemical reaction, is a technique for quality assessment of a Sindura and bhasma. Shodhana (purification) of Praval was done in sarjika- kshar
