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).
