Gavin Linsell from "Game of Stones" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Australian born Gavin Linsell is a gemologist who is a member of Dan Kogen's tight and trustworthy team at Gem Guys, Inc. Linsell will do anything to get his adrenaline fix.

Gavin has traveled extensively to mining centers and gem markets in Asia, South America and Africa. This experience coupled with a love of adventure makes Gavin a solid asset in the field and he is often called upon by the team for his outdoors and orienteering expertise.

Holding a bachelor of science, Gavin's experience is in the hunting, buying, lapidary and selling of gemstones. He is the author of two gemstone books, "Guide to Gems & Jewelry" (translated into four languages and published in five editions) and "The Clever Gem Buyer." Gavin has also appeared in a series of gemstone documentaries for Gems TV.

A familiar face for jewelry shoppers due to his numerous appearances on television shopping channels in the UK, Germany, Japan, Brazil and the US, Gavin for many will always be "Gemstone Gav," a colorful moniker that alludes to his encyclopedic knowledge and unbridled passion for gemstones. In 2013, JTV presented Gavin with their Guest Excellence Award 2012 for his outstanding on-air contribution.

Gavin's "first contact" with gemstones happened when he was about 10 years old, courtesy of a small water-filled container of Opal tailings given to him by an aunt. Gavin's professional love affair with gemstones started over 15 years ago under the shadow of KhaoPloiWaen, "the mountain of gemstone rings" in Chanthaburi, Thailand, an international center for colored gemstones.

Gavin is also a member of the ICA (International Colored Gemstone Association), an organization whose members include the top gemstone miners, cutters and dealers throughout the world.
