What does "Carat" mean?

The weight of diamonds and all other precious stones is measured in carats – one carat is equivalent to 0.2 grams. While in the Middle Ages and in ancient times precious stones were weighed for trade using scales counterbalanced with stone weights, these days specialists use highly sophisticated measuring technologies that are accurate down to one hundredth of a decimal point. Such absolutely precise weight specifications are essential, given that every milligram of diamond is unique and precious.
