Our new shilajit resin is stored in miron glass. Not everyone is familiar with this amazing material so we thought it would be useful to share with you some details.
At the end of this post we have a couple questions for you, if you’d be so kind to answer.
Although it looks black from the outside, miron glass is a violet glass. If you look at it with a light source behind it, you’ll be able to see this.
While it has only come into modern consciousness recently, first being produced in our modern age back in 1995, evidence suggests that violet glass was used by the ancient Egyptians as well as medieval alchemists to protect special herbs and materials.
When it comes to herbs there are a few natural things that can degrade their quality; light, air and heat.
For these reasons we recommend you keep your herbs sealed in their package and in a dark and cool cabinet. For most, there is no reason to refrigerate but a regular shelf will suffice. Our black bags help to keep the light out.
The most important thing for you to do is to keep the air out as much as possible. In some of the herbs we even add in an oxygen absorber to help with this.
While amber or cobalt glass (as is currently used in our pine pollen tinctures) are better than clear glass, violet glass is even better.
Clear glass lets in the entire light spectrum. Cobalt and amber glass block some of it.
Miron glass only allows in the violet color, as well as UV and infrared light.
What does this mean? Testing shows that it can dramatically improve the shelf life and potency of various products.
You can see what just two months of storage in the different jars did to these chives. Which one would you want to use?
Not only will these taste and smell better, but that also means more of the medicinal properties and nutrition is preserved.
Another test showed what seven months did to a cherry tomato.
As previously mentioned our new shilajit resin comes housed in miron glass. As an immortal substance this is likely one thing that doesn’t actually need it but we decided to go with it anyway because it also looks very cool.
So here’s the couple of questions for you. You can leave your answers in the comments below.
Would you be more or less likely to buy our herbs if more items came in miron glass? You’ve read about the benefits. However the drawbacks would be that this glass is not cheap, and shipping might be slightly more difficult/expensive too.
On the plus side, it’s great to re-use these jars when we have them.
Secondly, if we didn’t package most of products in violet glass, but we made available containers of different sizes to you to buy, which you could put your herbs in there yourself upon arrival, would that be of interested to you?
We appreciate your response.
