* This occurs in Creator/LloydAlexander's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfPrydain'' novel ''The High King''. While going through a Fair Folk mine tunnel, Glew finds a large number of uncut gems that are sparkling, glinting and glittering. (Homage is paid to the trope though: Doli comments that those stones are really worthless, and even the work of a jeweler wouldn't improve them much.)

** The pleasant corollary is that these gem deposits are absolutely everywhere, and are considered almost valueless (Rarity uses them to decorate stage costumes) if sparkly. Finding an exceptionally large gem (like the Fire Ruby Spike is shown saving for his birthday dinner) or a set of perfectly-matched gems may be difficult, but finding gems is quite easy if you know how to look.
*** Though in "Just For Sidekicks," Spike uses a tiny sliver of a ruby to buy a massive industrial pet washer, which just adds to the confusion.

* Inverted in the ''Literature/HerculePoirot'' novel ''Hercule Poirot's Christmas''. The murderer has stolen a fortune in diamonds and hidden them somewhere on the estate, but no one can find them. Poirot realises [[spoiler:that the diamonds were uncut, and thus just look like pebbles to a bystander, allowing the murderer to hide them in plain sight in a plant pot]].
