Kfir "Fear" Gershonowitz from "Game of Stones" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Kfir "Fear" Gershonowitz is a member of Don Kogen's team at Gem Guys Inc. Fear is ex-military and a former bomb disposal unit member whose many talents are crucial to each success — he also protects the team and their cash, up to one million dollars at a time.

An experienced gemstone buyer, Kfir has worked in the gemstone and jewelry industry for over 15 years. Growing up between Israel and Finland, he left Israel for a backpacking adventure in Australia after his military service.

While traveling throughout Australia, Kfir began his first foray into gemstones, wheeling and dealing gem-set silver jewelry in the street markets of Sydney and Byron Bay. Childhood friends with Don Kogen for over 30 years, Kfir joined Don at the international gem hub of Chanthaburi, Thailand, towards the end of 1997 and together, they started to work for Thaigem.com in 1998. Going from three to over 300 employees in only three years, Thaigem.com at its peak was the world's leading online supplier of gemstones.

While working at Thaigem.com, Kfir not only gained extensive experience in trading gemstones, but also became proficient at selecting and heat treating raw gemstone crystals. A well-traveled, passionate gemstone professional, Kfir has made numerous purchasing trips to India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, China and more. He has also sold gemstones all over the world.

Fear in recent years has been working closely with Don Kogen on several projects including guest appearances on television stations and gem symposiums. In his spare time, Kfir is no stranger to the partying sub-culture and clubbing scene.
