Rock Garnet or Almandine rock garnet is found in underground deposits.
The raw garnet rocks are crushed into sharp angular, chunky fragments ideally suited for aggressive blasting.
Almandine Garnet grain’s natural physical and chemical properties offering low dust levels, angular shapes, high specific gravity and hardness make it most suitable for use in the blasting industry.
Alluvial garnet is typically found on riverbeds or natural hollows where it has been displaced by running water.
As it is exposed to the constant impact or tumbling from the waves, beach and river garnet tends to be of smaller mesh sizes and rounder in shape compared to the angular faces of rock garnet.
Grain shapes are important factor in blasting efficiency.
