Etymology[edit]

From Old Georgian აგური ‎(aguri), ultimately from Akkadian 𒅇𒆪𒊒𒌝 ‎(agurru, ukurru [Ù.KU.RU.UM])[2][3], the immediate source of borrowing probably being Persian آﮔور ‎(āgūr, burned brick)[4][5] (or its Middle Persian antecedent).

For the development of the sense “diamonds” compare Armenian ագուռ ‎(aguṙ, brick; diamonds), քյարփինջ ‎(kʿyarpʿinǰ, brick; diamonds).

  • IPA(key): /ɑɡuri/
  • Hyphenation: ა‧გუ‧რი
