Ask John – Top 10 Questions of the week

This week on Facebook we invited questions from our followers to ask directly to John Greed. As it happens, we had so many questions we did in fact have to get the whole team answering them! Here are the top 10 questions this week:

Winning question – Why is a carat called a carat?

A Carat is now the standard unit of weight for precious stones. It is equal to 200mg. It originally came from using Carob seeds to weigh stones which wasn’t very accurate as all seeds vary in weight from one another for a given species. I imagine everyone had their “buying” and “selling” set of seeds!
