* 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.
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.
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.
Oracle cards to
the crystal realms by James Mc Keon and Roberta
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 .

Ally cards the crystal
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 .
