The following information is true to the best of our knowledge and belief.
We can buy an item which purports to display natural (not manmade & not artificially made) properties mentioned below.
We reserve the right to refuse to purchase an item with the following properties if we suspect any humanly induced function.
# Wash the Item with any detergent powder and water (like surf).
# Wash the Item with saline water (salt + water).
# Wash it with plain water and dry it.
# Rub dry cotton and newspaper on the Item.
# Let the Item come to normal room temperature before you begin to test it.
|1.||STAPLER PIN TEST
Take a small iron stapler pin and bring it near the RP. It should not stick to RP. It should also not be automatically pushed away (repelled).
The item should not have any magnetic properties for iron, neither pulling nor repelling.
(If the pin sticks or if it is repelled, then RP is fake.)
|2.||INSTANT PULLING DISTANCE
Get fresh rice from home preferably fresh de-husked rice.
(Do not use sellers rice as they do gimmicks as they use chemicals kept hidden in fingernails.)
Keep the rice very near the item for attraction. Note the time taken and distance pulled and color.
(You can also use rice from your home that is used for cooking.)
|INSTANT PULLING TIME|
Time taken for the color of rice to change after sticking.
Time taken for the rice to fall after sticking.
|3.||RICE TO RICE
Take these tested / dusted rice & place them on a flat surface towards untested rice and check for attraction.
|4. (a)||GLASS WATER TEST
Fill a non-metallic glass with water and place 4 tested rice on the water surface (as in 4 corners). After some time they will come towards the center. The rice should turn to yellow or brown in color.
Now bring an iron pin over the centre; the rice will move away.
Remove the pin and they will come to the centre again.
(If rice turns to BLUE COLOR then RP is a fake.)
|4. (b)||WATER TO RICE
Fill 1 inch water in a non-metallic glass; put plain (un-tested) rice in it; they will settle at the bottom.
Now sprinkle some tested "rice dust" on the water.
The plain rice will stand vertically at the bottom of the glass. They may also rise up and stick to the tested "rice dust" and hang below the water surface.
|5.||COPPER WIRE TEST
Take a thin copper wire (18 guage) and wind 2 or 3 turns on the RP and leave the other end hanging out.
Now do the INSTANT PULLING TEST. The copper wire should pull rice same as with the RP itself.
Take a plastic torch running on 2 leakproof pencil cells (having metal casing), which has an incandescent (filament) bulb. Remove its front glass and switch it on and hold it at a distance of about half inch from the Item. Keep another similar plastic torch about 5 to 10 feet away from the Item. Switch on both the torches together.
You must also keep an iron pin near the Item while doing the Torch Test. If the iron pin sticks to the Item while doing the Torch Test, then the Item is fake.
Note the time taken for the torch light (near the Item) to be completely dimmed. If it is happening in just a few minutes, then it is good. Also note that the light of the other Torch is still bright or not.
If the light of any torch flickers (blinks) that means there is loose connection inside the torch. Shake the torch till the light is stable and continue with the test.
If the light of the torch placed near the Item goes very dim quickly, switch it off and switch it on after about 2 minutes. If the light remains low (dim), then Torch Test is successful.
