The performer shows a small platform and three separate and ornate solid blocks. He then moves the top block to the right, and the bottom block in the other direction. Amazingly, the top two blocks remain precariously balanced on the bottom block! The performer then moves the bottom block almost completely out from under the middle block, closer to the back edge of the platform and the top block in the other direction, creating an even more impossible illusion! The performer then slowly slides the bottom block completely out from underneath the other two, yet the top two blocks defy gravity, remaining suspended in mid-air! The top block is then centered back on top of the middle block and they both continue to float above the platform. Now, after a dramatic pause, the performer takes a solid metal hoop and passes it completely over the floating blocks showing no visible means of support! It is a beautiful miniature illusion that gets gradually more mystifying with each step. The Stones of Khufu is based on Andre Cole's Fusion Illusion (Atomic Stock Pile) and Joe Long's close-up version called The Micro Atomic Blocks.

The photos really do not do justice to this very elaborate piece of magic apparatus! This is, without question, one of the finest and most exquisitely detailed "Atomic Stock Pile" effects ever produced. It is absolutely stunning in appearance!

Each block measures approximately 6cms wide, 1.8cms high and 3cms deep. The platform measures approximately 12.5cms wide, 4.5cms high and 7cms deep. The hoop measures approximately 8cms in diameter. The entire outfit is extremely detailed and each set has been painstakingly and individually hand-crafted by our own exclusive artist.

Our special thanks to Mr. Simon Corneille for suggesting the ideas & consultations and for writing the instructions & routine.

I purchased one….but take some time to arrive to Chile....one thing that I see in the video that is different from the classic versión is the bottom block shape…..not sure if this is good or not:

Pros: allow for more intricated and imposible arrangements of the blocks.
Contras: you cannot openly show the bottom block.

After Simon clarification I have to say that I was wrong thinking that the lower block is different.….Simon explained that you can show lower block at the beginning like I do in my video.
