Almandine garnet is a chemically inert non-metallic mineral that is quite
common in the natural environment. It is found in most river and beach sands
and is known for its hardness and durability. The high levels of hardness
and toughness make almandine garnet ideal for many abrasive applications.
Its high specific gravity as well as its chemical and abrasive resistance
makes almandine garnet ideal for filtration. Almandine garnet is also a popular
semi-precious gem and is the birth stone for January.
