The word "carat" originates from the Greek word kerátion, which means carob beans, which were known in the ancient world for uniformity of their size and weight and were used as a measure of weight for different objects, including gemstones. In the Far East instead of carob beans jewelers used rice grains to determine the weight of gemstones.
