Sol Stone has remained an
underground figure in the New York magic scene for more than 50 years.
Although many of his routines have been published in various magazines
and books, very few magicians have ever seen him perform.
Sol's magic is quick, direct and visual. His technique is superb and
he has a "soft touch" which helps make everything he does seem very
magical.This video features some of his favorite routines with coins,
chips, pins, sponge balls, ropes, balls, and finger rings.
Includes performances and explanations to:
- Fusion Fission: Two quarters change into a half-dollar and back to two quarters.
- Tenkai Quarters: A quarter magically jumps from one hand to the other.
- Vanishing Eagle: A quarter placed into your fist vanishes, as both hands are shown empty.
- Cointemplate: Two coins are placed under a clear
plate held by a spectator. One of the coins startlingly penetrates up
through the glass to appear on top of the plate.
- Chaperone: A routine with three different colored
balls accompanied by a cute presentation. Balls are repeatedly placed in
your pocket but appear back in your hand. The routine ends with all the
- Ring On, Ring Off: A borrowed ring penetrates the
center of a pen that is held at both ends by a spectator. Just as easily
the ring is pulled off the pen.
- Acupuncture: A quick linking pin routine with an acupuncture presentation.
- North, South, East and West: As two coins are moved
to opposite sides of the table one of them magically disappears and
joins the other.
- Jarred Coin: A coin repeatedly vanishes from your
hand to appear inside a little jar. The jar is sealed shut but the coin
still manages to vanish from your hand and appear inside the jar.
- Purple Cow: A quick and direct spellbound routine
presented as a poem. A silver coin changes to a purple coin and back to
silver a number of times.
- Knot For You: A piece of rope is placed around a
spectator's neck while a knot is tied in the center of a second rope. As
the spectator holds both ends of the rope the knot disappears and
appears on the rope which has been previously draped around his neck.
- Just Gone: A silver coin and a copper coin vanish one at a time until nothing is left.
- Elusive Sponge: A sponge ball routine with vanishes, appearances and multiplications.
- The 51 Cent Trick: The two-coin routine Sol Stone developed after his plane was shot down during World War II.

repertoires--we are sure you will too. Hosted by Gerald Deutsch. Running
