Short Introduction:

The Rasa-jala-nidhi (“the ocean of Iatrochemistry, or, chemical medicine) is a compendium of Sanskrit verses dealing with ancient Indian alchemy and chemistry and its medicinal uses, scientifically known as Rasa-shastra or Rasa-vidya.

The third volume deals with purification techniques of the Seven Metals (sapta-dhatu) and various Gems (ratna). It also deals with substances such as Alkalis (kshara), Salts (lavana), Poisions (visha) and Semi-poisions (upavisha) as well as various alcholic liquors.

This is the English translation of these Sanskrit verses dealing with the purification of elements and metals such as gold, silver and mercury, for the benefit of the human body and the improvement of global welfare.
