Definitions for "Karat"
Keywords:  purity, pure, alloy, gold, carat
the unit of measurement for the proportion of gold in an alloy; 18-karat gold is 75 2.122e-314old; 24-karat gold is pure gold.
Measure of fineness of gold. 24k is pure gold. 20k, 18k, and 14k are gold combined with alloy.
The method by which fineness of gold is expressed. Pure unalloyed gold is 24 karat. As an alloy metal is added (usually copper), the karat value declines: 22K, 20K, 18K, and so on. The lowest grade of gold to carry a karat mark in the United States is 10K, or, in Great Britain, 9K. Most gold coins are 20K or 21K. Jewelry is commonly 9K to 18K. The word karat derives from the carob bean, used as a measure of weight in the ancient world. When spelled "carat", it refers to the weight of a precious gem and has nothing to do with the fineness of a metal in the United States.
The karat is a local variety of the Musa troglodytarum or Fe'i banana found in Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia. Its name originates from its bright orange flesh, unusually rich in β-carotene.
