I think this trick is great. I think it’s obvious what is happening in the video but I bought the
trick for the convenience of having a rock and a coin purse that matched already. Big mistake. The
rock is nothing more than a piece of hardened clay with finger print ridges all over. I expected a
honed stone that was made to match the shape of the purse. This should be a $5 instant download and
then you go out and buy a coin purse and then find the rock and paint/dye it. I found an actual rock
at a local big box home store. It gets 2 stars because it’s a great addition to any coin routine. I
think this goes great with a coin matrix if you present the coins and then go to your pocket for the

I saw the Stone Purse advertised and thought, "Wow, that is something I can use." It is simple, and
very visual, plus everything happens on the off beat way, way ahead. Nathan has the ability to come
up with these sort of things. He likens it to Solid Deception, I would say, more like Omni Deck for
coins. But it does not need to be coins, I carry my pendulum in a small purse to prevent the chain
from getting knotted or tangled, and I use stones and crystals, so this is a natural for me.
I love this and am using it. To be honest, sometimes I do it just for me and don't reveal that
the purse has changed. I get a kick out of knowing the purse on the table isn't a purse anymore.
I don't know what more I can say. You get everything you need, the video details
everything you need to know.
For me it is a winner.

This has some fun possibilities I am looking forward to working on. Took one star off because my
rock is much smaller than the purse but no one has noticed this yet.

I though the purse would be the first to break down and fall apart, but it is still going strong.
Love the effect and the purse!
When performing my coin matrix routine, I reach into my pocket for my change purse and have the
spectator pull out three coins and examine them. I then put the “change purse” on the table and
reach back into my pocket for the 4th coin. The reaction at the end makes it well worth it.
THIS ONE EFFECT HAS THRUST THE HUMBLE SIR NATHAN KRANZO INTO THE RARE HANDFUL OF TOP FAVORITE LIVING
LEGEND MAGICIANS IN MY BOOK. I WILL BE CARRYING AND PERFORMING THIS ONE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
Let me just say that in my opinion this is not a trick but an effect that you add to a coin trick. I
really do love it but feel what you get for props is a bit expensive, yet Kranzo's teaching makes up
for it. Nathan goes over every step and give bonus handlings and a few effects. Overall it is a fun
routine to perform if you work with coins. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to add a touch of
pizzazz to any coin trick.
This is a quicky trick and fun plus easy to do. The quality of the materials you receive are very
good, especially the Stone which is a great imitation of the purse. Instructions are clear and
slights involved are easy. There is also room for your own imagination to add onto this if you like.
They never suspect the Stone, but once it appears all the heat is off everything else :>))
I read the description and immediately understood how powerful this effect could be. The problem is
that the rock is man made, and it doesn't weigh nearly as much as a real rock would weigh, nor is it
close enough to looking like the purse. Nobody noticed when I switched out the purse, but picking
up the rock only got a puzzled look from them. My first spectator simply asked "what is this?" I
would give this 5 stars for the idea, but 1 star for the execution or production value. I'm very
disappointed because I had very high hopes for this effect.
Very quick, good for walk around, nice props. Pick your own patter, the effect on spectator when
purse becomes a stone in their hand alone is worth the price of admission.
