The most common styles are standard shapes (oval, emerald, trillion, round, etc.). Translucent and opaque garnets are cut into cabochon, carvings and beads. Garnets with cat eye effect or asterism also are cut into cabochon. Green Hydrogrossular ("Transvaal Jade") is cut into cabochon or imitating the jade pieces.
