I have seen this (supposedly very clean MDMA) which resembles real store bought brown sugar a brown greasy crystal, to disambiguate from brown sugar the crappy quality heroin. I have searched for some answers for why this might be on the engine but found very little. Can someone say it is impure by colour alone?
From the BL FAQ I read "MDMA is a white crystalline powder"....
Obviously I am inexperienced in this realm but i guess my question would be what is going on here, oxidization, tainting or just a bit of free market enterprise from a shady source?
Thanks for the help!

The brown color in most MDMA and MDA on the black market is due to failure to wash out unreacted precursor (safrole/isosafrole/etc) and products of side-reactions. I think it's mostly safrole. The proper procedure is to wash the final product with acetone, but this dissolves a small amount of the product as well, thus lowering the yield, so many clandestine chemists skip that step - especially because people now use the safrole smell and brown color to "identify" MDMA from fake products sold as MDMA.
Color/smell is not a test of purity, buy a test kit.
Thank you all. I will buy I test kit for sure. You have answered my question perfectly. Mods feel free to close this.... thanks

i've had brown, pink(ish), white, and blue(ish) MDMA.... the brown was good
I had crystal clear chunks of mdma, like little crystal rocks
Although color isn't a test of purity, I find that the beige MDMA is usually the strongest and cleanest feeling.
i had some brown sugary stuff recently, it was really good!
theres a ton of mdma where i am, and its always a little different
is the pink any good,
im getting some in a couple weeks
i thought it was going to be brown
but just got told last night its pink,
i do now have a kit so will be testing it
but would still be good to hear some opinions
while im waiting

That's just my experience with pink. Somebody else may have had a batch of pink crystals that weren't so great. Color isn't an indicator so you'll just have to try it...after making sure it IS MDMA from your kit.
