Origin of the word Carat
The word carat comes from the Carob Mediterranean tree whose seed was used for centuries as the standard of weighing precious gems. Each carob seed weighs approximately one-fifth of a gram. A carat is one-fifth of a gram.
Throughout history economies have appeared and disappeared. It is interesting to see how many of these were based on something such as gold. Though the gold standard has been essentially abandoned, there remain very interesting ties between the U.S. Dollar and gold. Many countries base their currencies on the U.S. dollar; the currency of one of the wealthiest countries in the history of mankind.
