Hermes' Emerald Tablet

Hermes says: What is above must correspond to what is below,
if someone desires to accomplish such wonderworks, with art and might.

The moving planets may be seen standing in the heavens.
The earth with its precious metals resembles them exactly.

The father of this stone is the sun; The mother is the moon;
The wind carried the reward in its body; The earth has nourished it tenderly.
