Wiki EMERALD TABLE of HERMES, Arabic Version (from the German of Ruska, translated by 'Anonymous').

The Emerlad Tablet of Hermes probably first appeared in the West in editions of the psuedo-Aristotlean Secretum Secretorum which was actually a translation of the Kitab Sirr al-Asar, a book of advice to kings which was translated into latin by Johannes Hispalensis c. 1140 and by Philip of Tripoli c.1243.

Ruska has suggested an origin further east, and Needham has proposed an origin in China.
