Do you know before a diamond can be polished, depending on its natural size and shape, normally half of the rough diamond has to be taken away?

One of the very rare rough diamonds that has been recently shown during Haute Couture Presentation was a 296-carat rough yellow diamond. It is a very rare treasure showcased by De Beers. Now imagine around 120 carat has will be taken away from this piece...what would be the finished piece be like?
