I love the Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle cards by Judy Hall. The photography is beautiful. However, this is not a deck that I would recommend for someone who would like to do intuitive readings that has limited knowledge about crystals. These cards only offer a photo of a single crystal with the name of the crystals plus a boarder color to match the multidimensional vibration for that card. These cards do not have any keywords or any other information to help indicate the divinatory message for that card. With that said, a reader will need to know at least a little information about each of the crystals in this deck or they would need to consult the book for the meanings for these cards. That would truly be the only downfall that I see for this deck. As you will see in my example below, these cards do have a keyword to clue you in on the message and energy of the card.
The photography for this deck is beautiful. I do feel a few of the photos are a little dark, but in general these are stunning examples of each crystal. There is 1 crystal shown for each card. Looking through the photos I would say they are a very good representation of the crystal on the card. Photography and crystal representation wise this is one of my favorite decks. To me this is a very important aspect for crystal decks. After all, we want to be able to connect with that crystal as if it is right there. This deck does that for us. The back of the cards is a simple gradient gray color.
So far my review is basically identical to my review of the Crystal Wisdom Oracle. That is because they are the same deck. This one, the Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle, has new goodies that have been added to it. First off, the biggest difference is that there is a 5th multidimensional vibration suite, which means 10 new cards. These suites include Earthy, Healing, Cosmic, Integration, and the new suite is Interactive. The cards for the first 4 suites are identical to the Crystal Wisdom Oracle. The photos are the same for both decks. The messages in the guide books for the first 40 cards are pretty much the same as well. In the new Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle the messages are a little more condensed than the Crystal Wisdom Oracle. This is because the "Healing Insights" information was originally contained at the beginning of each vibrational suite section. In the new guide book it is included in with the other information for each card. I see this as a good improvement. This way we do not have to flip to the front of the section to find that information as it is right there for us with the rest of the crystal's information.
The guide book for this deck is bigger as well. In the Crystal Wisdom Oracle the book is 80 pages. The book is 120 pages for the new Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle. The guide book has in-color photos of each card along with the information for each crystal. It also includes information about the cards and the vibrational suites, how to work with the cards, 5 card layout suggestions, and brief information on using the cards for healing. The guide book goes over how these vibrational energies relate to the readings and how to work with them for healing. The new additions for the Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle includes more in-depth information on hot to work with these cards for healing. This includes information such as first-aid solutions, healing affinities (organs/systems and applications for each crystal), brief information for 16 of the chakras, and 6 healing layouts you can do with the cards.
Another thing that has been added to this deck is a number on each card. As simple as it may seem, I feel this is a big improvement from the previous version. It makes it much easier to look up the crystal in the guide book.
If you are debating whether to purchase the Crystal Wisdom Oracle (2013) or the new Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle (2016), I highly recommend going for the new Crystal Wisdom Healing Oracle (2016). For those of you who already have the previous version and are wondering whether it is worth purchasing the new deck.... you will have to follow your intuition on that one. I will be using the new deck instead of the old one. I feel the new upgrades and additions do make this deck better. I am enjoying the expanded healing information included in the book, I find these cards easier to look up their information, plus I love the 10 new crystals that are included.
I hope that you find this break down and information about these two beautiful crystals decks by Judy Hall to be helpful.

Kambaba Jasper attunes your personal biorhythms to the natural cycles of the planet. This crystal also facilitates deep clearing of your karmic body and the ancestral line.
• Self Understanding: When you live in your head rather than the physical world, your cellular structure becomes unstable and your metabolism is thrown off balance. You may not be assimilating oxygen or nutrients such as minerals and vitamins. Remember that ideas are nutrients too. Disruption of your autonomic nervous and immune systems may be caused by ancient traumas and family dramas.
• Divination: Getting in touch with the ancestors and understanding the processes of creation helps you to recognize the value of recycling the past to create a more potent future. Check out what has passed down the ancestral line and utilize homeopathic healing for miasmas such as tuberculosis.
• Healing Insight: By changing how you view things, you dramatically improve your well-being.
• Frequency: earthy
• Chakra: base (root), heart, alta major, causal
• Timing: winter
