Each card from Chroma Tarot is one color. The symbology of every card from the Major Arcana suit (22 cards) is derived from various Tarot traditions and sources and then summarized into a single color. Sources that were used include Visconti-Sforza, Tarot of Marseilles, Swiss 1JJ Tarot, Rider-Waite and Thoth Tarot, modern interpretations by Alejandro Jodorowsky and Alan Moore, as well as personal experience. Since the cards contain no other markings they can be identified by a matching chart.
