Morpheus on… Carats

Carat: a unit of weight, used for gemstones, equivalent to 200 milligrams.

Carat: a measure of purity of gold, pure gold being 24 carats.

What genius thought of THAT?

I mean, gold and gemstones being the two staple materials of the jewelery trade, wouldn’t you have thought they could have come up with a different name for ONE of them?
