Abhrakadruti (अभ्रकद्रुति, “liquefied mica”):—A physician, not acquainted with the process of making abhraka-druti (liquefied mica), is not capable of processing mercury (rasa). Similarly, without the druti (liquefaction) of loha (metals) and gems, processing of mercury is not possible. Abhraka-druti (liquefied mica) is rare in the three worlds. This could be achieved only if a person has the blessings of Lord Maheśvara. (according to the Rasadarpaṇa)

A person who was liquefied mica and who has controlled (effectively processed) mercury, has opened the doors of the heaven and the house of Kubera i.e., he attains salvation and great-wealth.
