Because of the tablet's reference to the Egypt and sacred geometry they became a priority reference for those studying the Flower of Life and the Merkaba meditation. Joachim Telle, L’art symbolique paracelsien: remarques concernant une pseudo-Tabula smaragdina du 16e siècle in ( Faivre 1988, p. Avec le traicté de vénérable docteur allemant Messire Bernard, conte de la Marche Trevisane, sur le mesme subject.

Commentaries and/or translations were published by, among others, Trithemius, Roger Bacon, Michael Maier, Albertus Magnus, and Isaac Newton. It has also been popular with nineteenth- and twentieth-century occultists and esotericists, among whom the expression " as above, so below" (a modern paraphrase of the second verse of the Tablet) has become an often cited motto. Et sicut res omnes fuerunt ab uno, meditatione unius, sic omnes res natae ab hac una re, adaptatione. Roger Bacon, Opera hactenus inedita, fasc V: Secretum Secretorum cum glossis et notulis, edited by Robert Stelle, Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1920. Recently, it has been suggested that it is actually a text of talismanic magic and that the confusion arises from a mistranslation from Arabic to Latin.Starting from 1420, extensive excerpts are included in an illuminated text, the Aurora consurgens, which is one of the earliest cycles of alchemical symbols.

This story is repeated by Michael Maier, physician and counselor to the "alchemical emperor" Rudolf II, in his symbola aureae mensae (Frankfurt, 1617), referring to a Liber de Secretis chymicis attributed to Albertus Magnus. Lots of compelling arguments here from Billy Carson, but it gets lost when you realize he is basing all of this on one man's outrageous claim.

In De Luce naturae physica, this disciple of Paracelsus makes a detailed parallel between the Table and the first chapter of the Genesis attributed to Moses. Thier mission is to provide evidence of past and present life on Earth, as well as on other celestial bodies inside our solar system.

Balînûs, "master of talismans and wonders," enters a crypt beneath the statue of Hermes Trismegistus and finds the emerald tablet in the hands of a seated old man, along with a book. Le livre de Cratès, Octave Houdas' French translation of the Arabic manuscript 440 from the University Library of Leiden, in Marcellin Berthelot, Histoire des sciences. However, this is merely a conjecture, and although it can be deduced from other indices that the text dates to the first half of the twelfth century, its translator remains unknown. But it is the Jesuit scholar and linguist Athanasius Kircher who launches the strongest attack in his monumental work Oedipus Aegyptiacus (Rome, 1652–1653).
