Gem Hunt - Premieres Tuesday, October 15 at 10:00 P.M. ET/PT on Travel Channel

Travel Channel takes viewers inside the high-stakes business of gems, traveling directly to the world's busiest and riskiest trading regions. Fascinating, exciting, unpredictable and embedded in some of the most remote locations, each of the thirteen hour-long episodes follows gem dealer Ron LeBlanc, jewelry expert Diane Robinson and geologist Bernie Gaboury as they maneuver through mines, markets and tense negotiations in search of the world's biggest, brightest and most profitable jewels.

In the season premiere, LeBlanc, Robinson and Gaboury travel to Vietnam to score high-rolling star rubies. Operating under the Government's radar, things don't always go as planned and almost immediately the team spots a fake stone being pushed on them. In hopes of finding better, they head directly to the rubies' source - an area where no gem hunter has gone before. Riding into the heartland of communism, they're tailed by a government agent who intends to make sure they leave empty handed. Finally the group connects with the big players who have the monster rubies... and cunning schemes to taint their judgment using homemade Vietnamese moonshine. With time running out, LeBlanc hooks up with a private dealer who has just what he's looking for. But the negotiations put everyone in a tough predicament.

Additional locations that will be featured include Brazil, Cambodia, Colombia, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, Zambia.
