SEM-EDX of Swayamagni Rasa by Dhanyarashi, Putapaka method showed the weight and atomic percentage of elements present and its particle size. Conclusion: The samples of Swayamagni Loha Bhasma by Dhanyarashi Method and one sample of Putapaka method passed the classical Bhasma Pareeksha, that is Rekha purnatha,Varithara, Nishchandratwa and Unama.
