Musk grains have a color from brown to black, it depends on the habitat of the musk deer.
Inside the pod can be with musk a little hair and epidermis, other parts should not be there.
Musk check method:
Put a little musk on a white sheet of paper and rub a piece with a hard object. Real musk leaves such a mark (see photo below) and completely smeared on a sheet of paper. If you don’t find that effect, you don’t have real musk.
