Background: Mukta Shukti is an aquamarine calcium carbonate compound. Mukta Shukti Bhasma is a classical ethical economical medicament, effective in general practice, pharmaceutical processing as per texts with systematic observation and technological updating is carried out in the present work. Objectives:  To prepare Mukta Shukti Bhasma by different Pharmaceutical processes and carry out the analytical study.  Materials and Methods: Grahya Ashodhita Mukta Shukti was subjected to Shodhana by Kanji Swedana for 3 hours and then divided into two parts. The first part of Shodhita Mukata Shukti was incinerated totally and after 1st Puta it was divided into two portions, first portion was subjected to Jala Bhavana and incinerated. The second portion was subjected to Kumari Swarasa Bhavana and incinerated. The second part of Shodhita Mukata Shukti was incinerated in Kumari Samputa and subjected to Kumari Swarasa Bhavana and incinerated until they attain Bhasma Siddhi Lakshanas and later all the three samples were subjected to analytical studies. Results: Mukta Shukti Bhasma by Jala Bhavana method, Kumari Bhavana method, and Kumari Samputa method requires 7, 6 and 3 Gajaputas respectively with an average of 324 cow dungs in each and at 793°C temperature. Conclusion: Kumari Bhavita Marana to Mukta  Shukti leads to calcite form and Jala Bhavita Marana leads to calcium oxide hydrate form. Chemically Mukta Shukti Bhasma may be in both calcite and calcium oxide hydrate form, and XRD is a method in Standardization of  Mukta Shukti  Bhasma.
