The Natural Stone Tarot is a unique deck that consists of pictures of leaves, flowers (wild and otherwise), bark, pinecones and other elements found in nature. In keeping with the illustrated tarot cards of the past, these natural materials have been designed in such a way to express the symbolism from classical roots of decks of yesterday.
We photographed each card with their associated stone to infuse them with energy. Each stone is incorporated into the natural design to add dimension, personality, and meaning.
What’s more, to aid in clarity to readings, both the upright and reversed orientation keywords have been added to the cards themselves!
This is a very rare and beautiful deck. The Daveluy Lenormand deck was produced in Bruges, Belgium c. 1860.
Lenormand originated in Germany as a card game (The Game of Hope) in the 18th century. It evolved into a 36-card oracle for divination in the 19th century. The name Lenormand comes from the famed French fortune-teller Mlle. Maria-Anne Lenormand.
While Tarot can be used for deeper reflection on one’s psyche, emotions, motives and spirituality, Lenormand is at its best with more tactical and practice aspects of life. It’s a blunt and direct system and works well for predictive readings. Each Lenormand card has a fixed/limited meaning and is meant to be read in pairs or triplets to create sentences.

The Sola Busca tarot is the earliest completely extant example of a 78-card tarot deck. The Latin motto TRAHOR FATIS (I am drawn by Fate) appears four times in the Tarot masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance, the Sola Busca deck, and over a procession of ancient Greek and Roman heroes.
The characters depicted in the Sola-Busca cards include Nebuchadnezzar and Gaius Marius, the uncle of Julius Caesar. The trumps loosely follow the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, but also include members of the Roman Pantheon such as Bacchus.
The similarity between some of the artwork of the ubiquitous Rider-Waite-Smith deck of 1909 (see links at end of page) and that of the Sola-Busca indicates that the artist of the former, Pamela Colman Smith, drew inspiration from the earlier work. Smith created the art for the Rider deck two years after the exhibition of a set of black-and-white photographs of the Sola-Busca deck by the British Museum.
The Besançon style which originated in the mid-18th century substitutes Juno and Jupiter for the Popesse and Pope in the Marseille tarot, presumably so as not to offend the religious masses of the period, are the only differences in this deck and the more familiar Marseille tarot. The Lequart/Arnoult Tarot is a Besançon deck published in 1880 by the Lequart publishing house.

78 medieval images dating from 12th centry to early 18th centry. Reads like a standard RWS. This deck was created while working on the Mood of the Moon project when one day some of the images wanted to be tarot cards and one by one the deck came to life. "I really feel like the deck created itself. It wanted to be born." Now that it's here, after some tweeking, it makes perfect sense.
