Hello JCB,You NEED to go to a DIAMOND CUTTER or Lapidary. They are the BEST EXPERTS who can tell you what's best for the rough diamond.
Jewelers/model makers/diamond setters are not experienced in this field. They will weigh the rough with you in the room, give their estimates on the finished product, and return all leftover bits of rough to you.
Thank you.

Many things will come into play, that a cutter can't answer with out seeing this diamond. Things like the exact shape of the rough crystal, is it knotted in any one area, what type and where are the inclusions are located. All this and more will come into play as far as the best shape for it to be cut in, and the final retention of weight. Of course you always have a slight chance that the diamond could be broken while cutting, then you get much smaller finished diamonds, and maybe different shapes.Good luck, and let us know the out come.------------------
