Bengal Bay is our premium almandine Garnet and is mined from the beaches in Southern India.
During the production process, it passes through multi stages of fresh-water washing.

All non-garnet elements have been removed by means of magnetic separation. We offer a selection of four carefully screened waterjet cutting grades.

Over the years, Bengal Bay Garnet has established a world-wide reputation as one of the best Garnets for waterjet cutting. Bengal Bay Garnet has the lowest count of suspended solids, which guarantees problem-free cutting at ultra-fast cutting speeds and offers high-precision finishes.
