the secret is that all the diamonds are the same color with progressive shading as it gets closer to the bottom. This way each row appears darker than the lower one because of the contrast.

its fun being smart :D

I think it has to do with the contrast of the white parts at the top. Either that or really quick marker skills. Like ninjas/2nd graders.

"How is that an illusion? Are the diamonds supposed to look different from one another? They're just colored with a gradient from bottom to top. I was waiting for him to rotate the moving diamond and have it fit in upside down. That would be an illusion."

Couldn`t have said it better myself.

It's just because the contrasting at the top and bottom and the fading in the individual diamonds.

still cool though, before you look closely.
