  The black light is the best tool to use for identifying whether Alacite is new or old formula.  The old formula will glow yellow or green as illustrated by the scallop foot lamp on the left in this picture, while the new formula will glow blue or purple as show by the Alacite plain foot  lamp on the right.  Small battery operated black lights that are quite portable can be found in many antique malls.
