A nice twist on the Tarot (for once)...

The Elemental Hexagons deck is based on the Periodic Table of the Elements. The modern periodic table as of the end of 2006 lists 117 known elements, and hypothesizes the existence of an unknown total of others. The Elemental Hexagons deck consists of 60 cards; the first 30 from the table, and 30 others of significance. Every element in the deck was discovered previous to 1900, and each can be found outside of a laboratory environment.

While this deck is not strictly a Tarot deck, each of the 22 cards of the Major Arcana are associated with individual elements. For example, to the far left is the Sulphur card, which is associated with the Major Arcana card The Devil. Also, below, the Iron card is associated with The Chariot. - source (http://calyxa.best.vwh.net/hexagons/)
