I've just stated putting a stone tarot together (From crystal, gem and Metal magic by scott cunningham) and though it would be nice to share. Its only the major arcana but i love the idea anyway.

Here are the correspondances:

0-The Fool-Agate
*Got this one (using blue lace agate)*
1-The Shaman (Magician)-Quartz Crystal
*Got this one*
2-The High Priestess-Emerald/Pearl

3-The Goddess (Empress)-Peridot/Olivine/Turquoise
*Got this one (i'm using Peridot)*
4-The God (Emperor)-Ruby
*Got this one*
5-The Chief (Hierophant)-Topaz

6-The Lovers-Rose Quartz
*Got this one*
7-The Elements (The Chariot)-Staurolite/Cross stone/twinned crystal
*Got this one (i'm using a cross stone)
8-Strength-Diamond/Herkimer Diamond/Garnet
*Got this one (I'm using Garnet)*
9-The Wise Elder (Hermit)-Sapphire/Blue Tourmaline

10-The Spiral (wheel of Fortune)-Sardonyx/Black Opal

*Got this one*
12-Initiation (Hanged Man)-Beryl/Aquamarine

13-Change (Death)-Amber

*Got this one*
15-Folly (devil)-Black Diamond/Black Tourmaline/Any Square Black Stone
*Got this one (i'm using Black Tourmaline)*
16-Force (Tower)-Lodestone/Lava

17-The Star-Meteorite/Any star stone

18-The Monn-Moonstone/Chalcedony
*Got this one (i'm using moonstone)

*Got this one (i'm using tiger's eye)*
20-Rebirth (Judgement)-Fossil

I'm a real fan of Cunningham's work and like your list. Someone posted another list a few weeks ago and you might want to find it for comparison. It was also a good list, imo.

"17-The Star-Meteorite/Any star stone"

Do you think that using star sapphire would work? As I have such a beautiful piece and I've been trying to find a use for this crystal.

I would have thought star sapphire would work just fine, as long as you aren't using sapphire for any other place.

There are some substitutions in his book that i could post if you like. :)
