Dhātubhasma (धातुभस्म) refers to “metal-based operations” on the basis of “crude” metals (i.e. aśodhita-nāga, ‘raw lead’), used in metallurgical processes.—There are several tests described in Ayurvedic texts to check the quality of prepared bhasma viz. rekhāpūraṇa (small particle size), Niścandra (lack of metallic shine) and niruttha (absence of alloy formation with silver) etc. (See Rasaratna-samuccaya)
Rasashastra (रसशास्त्र, rasaśāstra) is an important branch of Ayurveda, specialising in chemical interactions with herbs, metals and minerals. Some texts combine yogic and tantric practices with various alchemical operations. The ultimate goal of Rasashastra is not only to preserve and prolong life, but also to bestow wealth upon humankind.
