* Depending on their composition, kidney or bladder stones sometimes come in pretty or even sparkly colors. Not bad for crystallized urine.

* One ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' quest revolves around finding Garridan's Tears, magic crystals.

* One ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Ebony, the ES series staple of [[FantasyMetals high quality crafting material]], is theorized to be the petrified blood of Lorkhan, the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] who convinced some of the other [[OurGodsAreDifferent et'Ada ("original spirits")]] to create Mundus and was killed by them for his perceived treachery. They tied [[CosmicKeystone his Heart]] to an arrow and fired it across Tamriel, where it landed in modern day Morrowind. Small Ebony deposits are found across Tamriel where his Heart traveled as it fell, while the greatest deposits are around Red Mountain, where his Heart landed. Ebony also has a number of mystic properties, such as being able to be combined with Daedric souls to forge Daedric materials.
** Another theory states that Lorkhan's blood crystallized instead, and was collected by the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]] to create the Chim-el Adabal, better known as the [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield Amulet of Kings]]. It too was known to have immense mystical properties [[spoiler:before its destruction in ''Oblivion'']].
** St. Veloth was the legendary [[OurElvesAreBetter Chimer]] mystic who led his people [[DefectorFromDecadence away from the decadence]] of the Summerset Isles to their new homeland in Morrowind. When Veloth first laid eyes upon the new homeland of the Chimer, a single tear fell down his face and crystallized. Known as Veloth's Tear, this crystallized tear has immense restorative powers.

* 1980s doll line ''RosePetalPlace''. The resident family of a Victorian-style house moved away, and the little girl took one last stroll through its garden, weeping, before they left. Her tears changed some of the flowers into little maidens, and their houses, cars, etc. were similarly transformed toys and gardening implements. Each doll/accessory was thus marked with a "crystal" tear.
* Another iconic toy of TheEighties, [[http://cdn.buzznet.com/assets/imgx/1/2/2/3/0/8/5/1/orig-12230851.jpg wish trolls.]]

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithopedion There have been cases]] where an embryo or fetus dies in utero (or in an ectopic pregnancy), only instead of [[ConvenientMiscarriage being expelled]] or reabsorbed, the fetus becomes calcified and stays right where it is. Some women don't even know they have a lithopedion, and some of these can stay in place for ''decades!''

* ''Literature/TheThirteenClocks'' had a woman who cried gemstomes whenever she was sad. Unfortunately by the time the heroes came around, her tears dried up completely due to people telling her sad stories so much. However... she also cries gems when she's laughing hard [[spoiler: only for them to turn back into water after two weeks. Long enough for the heroes' purpose.]]
