Swarna Bhasma (SB) (incinerated gold) is one of the most potent and popular medicine among all Ayurvedic Medicines.Several procedures of its preparation are mentioned in the classical texts of Rasashastra. In the present study Swarna Bhasma is prepared and anlysed to develop its standard parameters. Three batches of SB were prepared and analyzed. Its different procedures like Shodhana (purification), Marana (incineration) were followed as per mentioned in texts. Specialized heating pattern was adopted for the preparation of SB. 18% loss was observed after the completion of thirty subsequent Putas (heating procedure). As a result, finished product contains 52.33 % elemental gold.
