A color is very various - from colourless to black. The size of crystals is usually small, mass does not exceed 10-12 carat. Carat a measure of the weight of precious stones, esp diamonds. It was formerly defined as 3.17 grains, but the international carat is now standardized as 0.20 grams (5 carat = 1 grams).
