GEM HUNT - NEW PREMIERE: ORIGINAL ONE-HOUR SPECIAL

Sunday, June 3 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT

Veteran gem dealer Ron LeBlanc and his team of gem hunters travel to the gem-rich nation of Madagascar in search of gemstones they can turn into a small fortune. There's much profit to be made from these rocks, but buyers must be skilled in spotting flaws, "fake" synthetic stones and knowing when - and just how much - to bargain. As LeBlanc and his team hunt for rare pink sapphires, premium blue sapphires and the country's finest aquamarines, they get more than they bargained for when they are offered a $700,000 piece of giant aquamarine that is about to be whisked out of the country. After many failures, they find what they came for - half a pound of aqua which LeBlanc hopes can be cut into a huge and valuable jewel in a secret gem factory in Bangkok, Thailand. Viewers will gain insight into Madagascar's bustling gem industry and the risks and dangers a gem hunter encounters in this exciting journey from mine to market.
