The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus (Hermes/Mercury) is one of the most mysterious, cryptic and enigmatic texts. The text is actually derived from the Hermetic tradition - an ancient Greek and Egyptian philosophical texts which are attributed to the mysterious figure known as Hermes Trismegistus. The texts are a combination of the Egyptian god of wisdom, Thoth and the Greek god Hermes. In these texts, Hermes discuss with his disciples, the true nature of the cosmos, nature, the mind etc. These teachings can be found in the ancient texts of the Corpus Hermeticum.
These texts are dated back to the 2nd and 3rd century AD and their origin is probably Egyptian. The Emerald Tablet is the most famous piece of Hermetica and is said to contain the secret of the Prima Materia - the base of all matter and existence which is formless and beyond definition (that is the reason for the endless similes in the Alchemical language). The Prima Materia or the Aether is also described by the ancient alchemists as the Anima Mundi or the “World Soul”. It is the soul, or oneness that connects everything and IS everything.
The European alchemists believed it to be the secret recipe for the creation of what is known as The Philosopher’s Stone - a substance that is said to possess the power of transmutation of matter (such as turning lead to gold) and give immortality and rejuvenation, therefore known as The Elixir of Life.
Over the years and upon contemplating on the words of this text, one can actually discover the many layers and hidden meanings of these words of wisdom. The text speaks volumes of ancient Taoism and different concepts of Buddhism. It was none other than Sir Isaac Newton, one of the greatest and most influential scientists in human history who claimed that many of his ideas came from the Corpus Hermeticum and the Emerald Tablet (which he translated). Prima Materia, and the constant change and transmutation of matter and the universe. At the center of the back of the pendant appears the ancient symbol of alchemy. Since I find that the ideas in this text can actually "transmute" and expand one's consciousness (and perhaps that the genuine secret of this text) I've decided to create for myself an Emerald tablet pendant and ring, and of course make it available to all of you…
