Garnet is a natural mineral abrasive used for a number of blasting processes.  Garnet is also widely used as the abrasive in waterjet cutting.  Garnet is frequently used in larger open blasting applications.  It is a relatively dense material that does a good job of cutting, although it does have a higher break down, or attrition rate.
