Shells may contain the chemical elements calcium, magnesium, aluminum, Iron2 +, + ijzer3, chromium, manganese and titanium. Grenades show no cleavage. The hardness is from 6.5 to 7.5, and shells can be transparent to opaque.

Garnets are contrary to what is commonly believed, and the name suggests, is not always red, but may purple, red, orange, yellow, green, brown, black or colorless.
