The images on the Crystal Tarot appear to be stained glass and, indeed, this deck is called I Tarocchi di Vetro in Italian. Artist Elisabetta Trevisan used tempera and pastels to create these crystalline scenes. This deck was originally published as just the 22 major arcana cards, but the minor arcana has been added to this edition. The card titles are given in five languages with Italian the largest at the bottom, and the other four languages at the top. The card number is given in roman numerals. The suit names and court cards are standard except with cups as chalices and pages as knaves. There is no instruction booklet, but some brief card meanings are given on extra cards. The Crystal Tarot is produced by Lo Scarabeo in Italy.
