A Magic Diamond is a Distorted Diamond in which the Centers of one Diamond work with the points of the other Diamond. EN: 20

• The basic rule is try to get to your ending position with a minimum number of collisions (trying for zero collisions would be a good goal). EN: 70

In our opinion, callers should say Magic Diamond Cut | Flip The Diamond rather than Cut | Flip The Magic Diamond. In the first case, the dancers initially hear the word Magic and can immediately start locating their Magic Diamond. Also, in our opinion, Cut|Flip The Magic Diamond is NOT the same as Magic Cut|Flip The Diamond, since on a Cut|Flip The formation those with handholds do a formation Circulate as the others simply slide together and Trade (Cut) or Phantom Run (Flip). Hence, for a Cut|Flip The Magic Diamond only the Centers are working Magic. EN: 90
