Garnet is the name utilized for an expansive gathering of shake shaping minerals. These minerals share a typical precious stone structure and a summed up substance synthesis of X3Y2(SiO4)3. In that structure, "X" can be Ca, Mg, Fe2+ or Mn2+, and "Y" can be Al, Fe3+, Mn3+, V3+ or Cr3+.
These minerals are found all through the world in the ocean, waterway, transformative, volcanic, and sedimentary rocks. Most garnets found close to Earth's surface structures when a sedimentary shake with a high aluminum content, for example, shale, is subjected to warmth and weight sufficiently serious to create schist or gneiss. Garnet is likewise found in the stones of contact transformative nature, subsurface magma chambers, magma streams, profound source volcanic ejections, and the dirt and residue framed when garnet-bearing rocks are weathered and dissolved.
A great many people relate "garnet" with a red gemstone; in any case, they are regularly astounded to discover that garnet happens in numerous different hues and has numerous different employments. In the United States, the major mechanical employments of garnet in 2012 were waterjet cutting (35%), grating impacting media (30%), water filtration granules (20%), and rough powders (10%).
