## How to Convert Metric Tons to Carats

To convert a measurement in metric tons to a measurement in carats, multiply the weight by the following conversion ratio: 5,000,000 carats/metric ton.

Since one metric ton is equal to 5,000,000 carats, you can use this simple formula to convert:

carats = metric tons × 5,000,000

The weight in carats is equal to the weight in metric tons multiplied by 5,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 metric tons to carats using the formula above.

### How Many Carats Are in a Metric Ton?

There are **5,000,000** carats in a metric ton, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 t = 5,000,000 ct

Metric tons and carats are both units used to measure weight. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
