* Crystal CARDS*

I was given permission to  share this listing of the contents of the different  crystal card sets and some kits.  I did not   have any of these when this was first posted    I have used a lot of Tarot sets but have not  only recently gotten crystal cards yet it seems like they might be a  wonderful tool .  I now have some crystal card decks and have added my initial impressions  to the existing page of information from Liza Alley.

I   was able to get some of the different sets of  Crystal and Gemstone cards.  I have not had a chance to explore these  thoroughly yet so this is just a preliminary  look.  The size of the cards is not obvious here  because the pictures  have been resized  for the web page.

toumelinecardThe Tarot of Gemstones and crystals  from AGM Agmuller  Printed in Germany


This is a Tarot deck.  Cards are  a normal size.  Each  image is  a photograph of  a stone or crystal,  with the traditional tarot name or number  on it.  Very good photographs,  Some of the stone names are European such as Olivine for peridot , Silex  etc. . This might not be the easiest deck to do standard Tarot readings with  unless you have all the minor arcana meanings memorized well enough to do readings without graphic clues.  This is very nice and  quite usable as a  crystal deck.   You can use as an oracle  for selecting stones for meditation or healing and to facilitate connecting with the crystal spirits and energies etc..
There is no book  just the little pamphlet most Tarot decks come with  but  it  has good brief explanations for both the stones and the  Tarot .
I would have liked it better if the Major Arcana had the numbers on them  I penciled the number on the cards.  This one has the best photographs.   ( This is not the same as the Crystal Tarot which is an Italian deck with 
mosaicy stained glass style images  and has nothing relating to crystals in the content)

The other decks are all  more artistic graphic centered  and are all dedicated Crystal  Oracle cards  with channeled information all are Over sized  decks.


lotuscard Jewels Of the Lotus  Tibeten Gemstone Oracle  by Dawn Silver,  Pat Gullet

224 page spiral bound booklet  45 cards in 7 chakra suites  with 5 Skanhda cards The skandhas are from sacred geometry: cube, icosahedron, (merkabah)star tetrahedron, octahedron & dodecahedron. The lotus blossom on each of the  cards in an  elemental suite  are that chakra's color: red, orange, yellow, *emerald, *rose, blue, indigo, purple. (note: the heart chakra uses these 2*) There are 10 readings/layouts. This deck is based somewhat  on Tibetan Buddhist principles  and is very different from other  gemstone decks. 

The text explains a number of Tibetan Buddhist concepts and has guidance for healing as well as meditation and divination .The over sized cards are rainbow colored.  Each has a photo based image of the stone and a lotus flower in the suite color.  Each card also has graphic decorative elements  relating to the element of the suite,  Dolphins on Water, dragons on Fire etc..  This deck but it is quite lovely.  Daily cards have been appropriate and inspirational . The  stone assignment to elements are often very different than Western  Correspondences.  This is a useful and inspirational  deck with a lot of solid information in the book.

aoracarnAora Gemstone Oracle cards to explore the crystal realms   by  James Mc Keon and Roberta Carothers


44 oversize gemstone  cards 1 oracle card  102 page booklet  computer generated  graphics  with gemstone textures incorporated  in evocative symbolic imagery
The Book gives  several very interesting classifications of stone qualities  ( Heart stones, Sun stones etc)  a number of layouts for different kinds of reading. Again I have not had much chance to work with these  but  my initial impression is that this will be a very valuable deck for communing with crystals and receiving guidance on a spiritual; journey.  Some of the text is quite poetic and inspirational .

allylepThe Crystal Ally cards the crystal path to self knowledge   by Naisha Ahsian


For divination  meditation and   healing, 285 page  booklet 55 very large cards in five elemental suites  including five Element cards.
The book has some layouts  each card  entry includes an affirmation.
Each card has a graphic which includes and image of the stone. The name of the featured stone and a  defining word,  Moonstone -Cycles for example. The artwork is expressive of the essential meaning of the card. Some photographic elements and textures are used but they are not obvious. very nice  attractive cards. Large  size makes them a bit challenging to shuffle. The   book is quite  informative. I have not had much chance to work with these yet  but the images are very easy to  enter a meditation with and It is a very pleasant  deck  and easy and enjoyable. The text has a simple straightforward style .
