Nature’s secret

The weight of a diamond is measured in carats. One carat is 0.20 grams, thus a 5.00 carat diamond would be the equivalent of 1 gram. A carat is divided into 100 "points".

The word carat originates in India, where the earliest known diamonds were mined and traded. The method for weighing diamonds involved the use of seeds from the carob plant as counter weights, as they were the only available natural objects measuring a sufficient, uniform weight.
