The performer displays a beautiful wooden cabinet along with a wooden block which has a hole running through its center and a brass rod.
The cover on top of the cabinet is then removed allowing a clear view right through. The performer then inserts the rod through the block
and places them through the slots on top of the cabinet. Now, the rod is removed causing the block to fall to the bottom of the cabinet in
full view. The performer then replaces the cover, shows the rod to be perfectly solid and inserts it back into the top of the cabinet.

With a wave of the hand, the cover is again removed to show that the wooden block has now mysteriously impaled itself onto
the solid brass rod! The rod can be immediately removed from the slots at the top of the cabinet and the block is allowed
to slide down the rod and fall off into a spectator’s waiting hand! It is a stunning and inexplicable effect.

The mechanical method is absolutely diabolical in operation and is used by us for the very first time!
It does not rely on magnets or involve springs to do the work, yet the effect is completely
self-contained and can be immediately repeated!

I like quite well this small Mystery tower with his new magic but is for me more a micro gem

Yes it is really small, it is as high as a deck of cards standing upright.

The mechanism is really special and totally noiseless.

Indeed, I’ve not seen such a mechanism before…

I wished they had made it a bit bigger but that is probably a compensation for increased costs

Overall, though, it's an exceptionally well-made, beautiful piece that has its own charm ...

I haven't received mine yet, but I would imagine the smaller size adds to the jewel theme.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Here’s my basic performance of the effect.

It’s quite clever. I’ve only ever seen this method used one other time and it was for a totally different effect.



There are several routine ideas that come to mind.

Ha, clever idea! Now it has become a Crystal Cleaver variation!

Agreed. Terrific alternate handling Magic Dust!

I wonder if turning it upside down would also be a convincing demonstration.

What do you mean? Turn what upside down?

Once the performer places the spike into the box with the diamond block at the bottom, rather than making a magical gesture indicating the block is rising up through the spike, the entire unit is tilted giving the impression that the block is tipping and falling through the spike.

Hopefully that makes sense.
