Herbomineral formulations are unique to Ayurveda. Lauha bhasma is an Ayurvedic metallic preparation used in iron deficiency anemia. Our emphasis in the present paper is on chemical characterization of Lauha bhasma at different steps by following X-ray Diffraction (XRD) study and Vibrating Sample Magnetometry (VSM) study. XRD study was conducted for the samples after Sthalipaka, 1 st Puta, 5 th Puta, 10 th Puta, 15 th Puta and 20 th Puta and VSM study was conducted for samples after 5 th 10 th
more » ... after 5 th 10 th and 20 th Puta. Fe 3 O 4 and γ-Fe 2 O 3 may be accepted as chemical characterization of Lauha bhasma in broader way as it has been explored in this project by applying more sophisticated analytical technique like XRD and VSM.
