Emerald colour can range from light green to a deep, rich green and belongs to the Beryl family.The word Esmeralda or Emerald comes from the Ancient Greek: σμάραγδος (smaragdos; "green gem"). But some specialists are certain that it comes from Semitic languages. For the Romans, the emerald was associated to Venus. Nero, the Roman emperor, was said to watch Gladiator matches through a Beryl. Perhaps he thus invented the first sunglasses?. Or was it to alter the blood colour?. Aztecs called the emerald Stone of the Earth. It was associated with fertility and to celebrate it, they filled their statues with jade and emeralds. The Mystic Johannes van Ruusbroec said that the stone was indeed, the holy spirit of Jesus and represented faith, hope and love. Was an inspiration for the Medieval alchemists. The Tabula Smaragdina or The Emerald Tablet is a compact and cryptic piece of the Hermetica reputed to contain the secret of the prima materia and its transmutation, associated to the creation of the Philosopher’s stone, the creation of the world, energy and correspondence between microcosm and macrocosm. The text claims Hermes Trismegistus to be its author. A translation by Isaac Newton is found among his alchemical papers that are currently housed in King's College Library, Cambridge University.
