    SWIM wants to know if there is any test to determine the actual percentage purity of Crystal Meth. SWIM doesn't think acetone, water tests etc are accurate enough. Nor does SWIM think that just by smoking it can determine actual percentage.

    SWIM would like to know if anyone has developed a step by step tried and tested mehod for determining actual percentage give or take a few percentage points.

    SWIM thanks all in advance. And reminds people search has already been utilized.

    The chemical purity of any substance can be tested. Water, for instance can be tested. Methamphetamine is relatively large molecule compared to water. Therefore the chemical testing process is very intricate. One could heat the meth to the point that it breaksdown and produces gas, contain the gas then analyze the gases that are produced. C10 H15 N The gases should be composed of those. Simple math, divide the number of the elements in meth by the elements detected in the gas. Divide that number by the total number of the gas and that is the percentage.

    Or if the person who cooked it has a basic knowledge of chemistry they could predict the chemical reaction using the chemical formula for each ingredient thereby predicting a chemical equation.

    What the fuck? like anyone doing meth would have the equipment or knowledge to perform such a task? meth is water solube, so drop a peice of it in water, and any solid that remains in the liquid after its done dissolving ISNT meth.

    Thats not a scientific way, but it'll give you an idea of how much was meth and how much wasnt.

    Try weighing it before and after?

    definitely not 100% accurate method of measure, because some cutting agents are bound to be water soluble too

    Only way to SWIMS knowledge is to observe. Look closely at the texture, pure crystal is very clear and any offwhite or specs are signs of cutting agents, to get rid start cooking and let it smoke up abit lightly blow to get rid of the smoke, agents will heat up faster.

    Also since meth is water soluble you could throw in a shard into a small amount of water, and swims talking about 1ml of water. anything insoluble is rubbish which can be filtered with a coffee filter, SWIM is not sure how to revert back into a snort/smokable form, probably evaporate, or just snort the ml.

    AW: Test Crystal Meth purity? Searched no answer.

    Look at the Chemistry section! Swiy will find all about it.

    another test is with a small amount of bleach , drop a small crystal in there and see if it "buzz's" around, water test will tell you nothing, because most "cuts" are also soluble in water.

    The most tried and true method SWIM knows which doesn't require anything fancy is the burn test method.

    The test basically involves counting how many seconds it takes for the meth to re-crystallize after it has been melted to liquid form.

    2-3 Seconds means good quality
    5-8 Seconds is average
    Anything above 10 seconds is inferior product.

    SWIM recommends using a jet lighter as it is able to heat up the entire portion of your meth simultaneously.

    Therefore if you do see some parts re-crystallizing before the other, you are able to gauge as well, how much of your product has been mixed.

    is that measured after dowsing the glass bowl?
    or just letting the glass cool on its own?

    I'm also confused. Wouldn't the size of the puddle effect the re crystalization time? Or how spread out and thin you make the puddle?
