Gem Stones is a well made DVD, easy to navigate and good quality. I found the videography a little irritating with the strange angles and clumsy zooming but overall it was good and you should have no difficulty understanding what is going on.

The array a tricks is pleasing. Jeff has a nice mix of card and non-card effects. He states that there are 13, but there are more in the bonus section. Do not miss this section.

He has an interesting card box utility that will intrigue many close up magicians and get thing thinking in some new ways. He also demonstrates a “small object vanish” that leaves the hands totally clean. He fooled me with that one.

I enjoyed Visa 2.0, which is a reworking of Joe Diamond’s Visa Card. It is fun and has lots of possibilities to make this your own personal effect.

Synchronicity has a nice visual look to it.

Jeff has done a lot of thinking here and his explanations are very clear. I would like to see him develop more compelling premises for his effects. Many of them are simply expositions.

If you are looking for some new close up material, I think you will be pleased with this DVD. It should get you thinking in some new ways.

13 Rare Magic Gems by Jeff Stone

Watch the trailer

It's official: Jeff Stone is unstoppable. His newest project, Gemstones unleashes a string of visual yet practical magic. These are indeed rare gems, and best of all: they are well within the reach of every performer.

No pipe dreams here. Even experienced magicians will be fooled by some of the material on this DVD.

You'll surprise your audience with:

  • A card box utility for vanishing or changing cards, bills, slips of paper and more! This will take you a whole 5 minutes to make!
  • A super little effect using a folded card and a roll of film. So simple, so minimalist, but their mouths will hang open!
  • A coin effect using a candy sucker that plays as well for a roomful of professors as it does a roomful of 6 year-olds.

Every magician is constantly looking for that newest little subtlety that looks and feels natural but makes their magic look professional. This DVD is loaded with 'em! How about leaving your Top-it Laden jacket hanging on a chair? Learn the S.S. Vanish and you'll have a utility at your disposal that will allow you to completely and cleanly vanish and/or switch any small item that you can fit in your hand.

You'll see how Jeff uses classic moves in unique and different ways that will catch even the most well-studied magicians off guard. Plus (and don't overlook this added bonus): you'll have access to a special website full of extras and additional effects... specifically created just for those who purchase this DVD!

Gemstones features a wonderful variety of commercial magic and powerful images, and I wish to heck I had created 'Under My Skin.' I'm CRAZY about that effect! - Jay Sankey
