Rought diamonds canīt be evaluated as a cut diamond, in the evaluation of a rought diamond you must examine the size and shape of the crystal, the grain run to determine if you will saw it or clevage it and also you must determine the place you will cut, most of the times you will cut for a bigger sone and a smaller from the top, also the color grading and the inclusions are very difficult to determine and many times when you buy a rought diamond, when you cut and polish it you get surprices some times good, some times bad.
The best place to determine the value of a rought diamond is with the people that deals with rought diamonds or with an expert cutter.
