The Carat of Gold.—A carat of gold received its name from the carat seed, or seed of the Abyssinian coral flower. This was at one period made useful when gems of gold were to be weighed, and so came about the peculiar and now general use of the word. Twenty-two carats fine means that out of twenty-four parts twenty-two are gold, and all tho rest alloy.
