STELLAR is a beautiful little pocket wonder, unlike any other part of your routine.
- You can carry it as an actual card clip, which not only helps protect your cards and makes you
look classy, but motivates the use of the prop.
- It's very high quality, with thick polished
- It's easy to perform once you get the hang of it.
- It produces a unique effect
that compounds the effect of divining the selecting card.
- You can make the stars twinkle
without displaying the selecting card before you decide to reveal the selection. This lets you
weave the prop in and out of your patter to introduce it.
- I would call it completely
examinable. Spectators will lose interest in examining it long before they figure anything out. And
even if they do, they'll still wonder how you/"it" knew what card they selected.
- Can't be repeated for the same spectators. Since the ad copy doesn't explain more about this,
I won't. But if you connect the dots yourself you'll understand how this works. The "pro" spin on
this "con" is that you can get to the point of the reveal by the method and presentation of your
- Weighs about as much as a full deck of cards. I'm not sure how important the thickness
of the metal is to the effect, but I wish it were lighter.
- There's a huge vanity logo for the
manufacturer on the inside of the clip, which could lead a curious spectator to find the secret via
- Some light sources and projection surfaces work better than others, but this is well
explained in the instructional video. Basically you need a single-bulb source (like a smartphone,
small flashlight, or even the sun) and a flat, light surface (like a wall or screen, or I've even
used a dinner napkin held up by a spectator). So it's versatile, but it may not work in every
Given the quality and uniqueness, I think STELLAR is worth the price and I've
enjoyed using it.

Cons: I should have read the promo better. It is just a reveal and not that good of one. I was taken
by the positive reviews.
It scratches easily and needs to be kept in a velvet bag to keep
it from being scratched. Not well thought out.
Can be done only once per audience.
Pro: It is a card clip
It can easily go wherever your cards go.
I think this
is a bit of a novelty (for magicians) that will soon wear out. I can't see using it in my routines.

Was taken by good reviews. But it's just a card clip with a holes.
But you can't use it as a
card clip, cause it will be scratched the first your walkaround hour.
So it would be ok for
20-25$, but 40 is way overpriced.

After receiving the Stellar card clip I must admit, this thing is cool! Gorgeous looking card clip
that adds a nice, professional, touch to carrying your deck of cards around. Inspecting it I noticed
Alchemy Insiders did a solid piece of quality work. Sturdy, thick metal with a very nice black
The trick works exactly as described, I've added a kind of astrological
patter to enhance the astonishment. The clip can be inspected, then I use my cellphone flashlight to
show the twinkle of "stars" on a wall or ceiling. The spectator chooses a card, then that same
twinkle of scattered stars morphs into the spectators chosen card. The handful of people I've had
the chance to show have told me its one of my more "beautiful" card illusions. I can't agree more.
The trick is simple to do, took me roughly 10 minutes to learn how to manipulate the clip
while shining the light through, but honestly it'll do all the work for you. I've handed the clip
out for inspection after the reveal and nobody can figure it out, I can't even figure it out lol.
Great prop to carry around with me and use as an actual card clip to keep my cards perfect.

Coming from a Psychological Illusionist that didn't expect a huge response from the simplicity of
the trick (like PK Touch), the audience's reaction proved its worth.
As one of the first
"staged" effects I performed for a recent company holiday party on the outskirts of Chicago, I was
surprised when hearing the gasps & "woah's" behind me as the stars aligned for their big reveal.
Despite my believing a card holder should snugly hold one's deck versus let it slip, the
true purpose behind the gimmick played well and I'll be utilizing in upcoming company and corporate

What a great surprise for an ordinary prop that you would have on you anyway while strolling or at
any time to protect your cards. Does exactly what it says it does with no false camera editing like
sooooooo many videos to sell you magic. Looks even better in your hand than even the video. Can be
added as a final kicker to so many different existing effects. Great polished finish too. Lasts
forever, very well built in a beautiful package as well. If you use a card case then this is a must
have to add to your repertoire. If you don't use one then what a great reason to buy this effect.

I was very impressed to the point I had to leave a review after receiving the clip. The tutorial is
short but covers everything you need to know to create the best revelation possible using light in
my opinion. I can’t wait to start using this in my walk around settings where it will not only grab
the attention from every table but creates a piece of art that takes up the entire wall or less. The
clip can immediately be examined since there’s nothing to hide or take away. I will be using this!

WOW, I knew I'd like it. Very practice, something that you can always have with u. Have to say this
though. Just like everything in this business. *you must practice before trying to show*
lighting and angles can be difficult sometimes but when you finally find it 👍👍👍🎩
This little gaff is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. It works fantastic and looks so innocent. When
the card appears it is like real magic. This is one of the nicest card reveals I have ever used.
It is true that the metal attracts fingerprints and sure it will get scratched over the time.
But the blackened metal looks very magic. How many magic gaffs do you own, that will still work fine
in 20 years? This thingy is nearly unbreakable.
I am using cardclips all the time. They
allow me to protect the deck(s)in my pockets.
Also I know, which deck I am using only from the
I do not care if the metal gets scratched over the time. I have cardclips that
are 20 or more years old. They are scratched and look "worn" but anyone who sees them can tell: This
guy is not in the business since yesterday. Honestly if it comes to magic props I believe that you
should be more concerned about using things that look too "new" rather using things with a more
"used look" (Magic Wallets are a perfect example here). Trust me: Stellar will age with dignity.
I absolutely love this card clip. I wrap it with one of those old card rubber bands and force two
