Angle grinder blade for cutting through tile?


I saw a fellow using a 4 inch blade on a makita angle grinder to remove damaged tiles from a wall. Is that blade called a diamond blade, or something else?

Sometimes sold as tile and masonry blade. Not necessarily diamond but not that much more for a diamond blade and you will cut faster and cleaner.
