Can superideal cut diamonds be cut from Gnats or do they require better rough?

Some "naats" are extremely hard to cut (not to mention polish!!!).
I as a cutter would not try to mess around with naats for the purpose of what you call "superideal cut Diamonds".

crossed grain rough material...

means..., a cutter must cut and polish a rough Diamond based on a grain direction..., when you have a crossed grain direction..., it can become impossible to cut or polish the Diamond!!!

I hope this helps...
