A renowned gem expert, global gemstone adventurer and author of ‘The Clever Gem Buyer’, Gavin will be on Rocks &amp; Co. Friday 6th February (8.00pm - 10.00pm), Saturday 7th February (10.00am - Midday and 8.00pm - 10.00pm) and Sunday 8th, February (10.00am - Midday and 8.00pm - 10.00pm). <br /><br />Gavin is a familiar face for jewellery shoppers due his numerous appearances on television channels in the UK, Germany and the U.S.A. One of the gemstone professionals behind Rocks &amp; Co., Gavin for many will always be ‘Gemstone Gav’, a colourful moniker that alludes to his encyclopaedic knowledge and unbridled passion for gemstones.<br /><br />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. Following a successful marketing career in his native Sydney, Gavin’s professional love affair with gemstones started eight years ago in Thailand’s Chanthaburi Province, an international centre for coloured gemstones. Apart from travelling extensively to gem markets and mining centres in Asia and Africa, Gavin is also a member of the ICA (International Coloured Gemstone Association), an organisation whose members include the top gemstone miners, cutters and dealers throughout the world. <br /><br />When asked about his upcoming appearance on Rocks &amp; Co. Gavin said, “Honestly, I can’t wait. I’m very excited to be appearing on Rocks &amp; Co. and look forward to sharing my passion for gemstones”. <br /><br />Join Gavin Linsell this weekend on Sky channel 642 and Freeview channel 49.
