* In the anime version of ''ChronoCrusade'', Fiore says that her heart is [[spoiler:a gem similar to the jewels she uses in her spell casting.]] In the manga Fiore herself isn't a victim of this trope, but she uses her powers to [[spoiler:trap the souls of people inside gems for Aion to fuel his powers with]].

* ''Six of Swords'' by Carole Nelson Douglas: the tears of the heroine, Irissa, turn into "coldstones." She at least implies on one occasion that the hero is deliberately trying to make her cry so he can sell her tears. It turns out he was deliberately trying to make her cry for another reason - to wash out the taint that had blinded her. (The taint had turned here eyes and tears from gold to silver, and he shows her that the colour was faded in later tears.)

* Tiahzi's tears in ''ComicBook/{{Thorgal}}''.

* The Creator/PaulJennings short story ''Tonsil Eye 'Tis'' features a character who grows a third eye on his finger, which cries tears that grow into garden gnomes. That sounds absurd, but the character goes on to make a living selling the gnomes.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' the moon of Termina is not only sentient, but it can even cry. The resulting crystal-like Moon Tears are highly prized by Terminans.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', the Spanish translation of the game makes Evil Crystals the "petrified hearts of malicious monsters". Fittingly, the Zombie Bokoblins are the ones dropping them.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', Magicite is the crystalline remains of an Esper, which can grant spells and SummonMagic to the holder.
* The l'Cie in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' get their souls crystallized early on in the process. When they finish their focus and turn into statues (which are just [[EmptyShell empty shells]]), they can be revived later as long as the crystal gem is intact. In particular, Serah's single crystallized tear plays a large role in many cutscenes involving her fiancé Snow.

* In ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}}'' this is invoked by the 'Orbs', a demonic currency as opposed to the HolyHalo currency Bayonetta usually collects that looks like crystalline demon blood. However this is only invoked (due to the fact they're presence is likely ShoutOut to the ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' series) as they are never referred to as blood, but as a rare metal containing the essence of an infernal's LifeEnergy.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', those marbles that Anna uses to amplify her psychic abilities are made from her blood, as is shown in TheStinger to episode 9 of season 1. She's colorblind and can only see red, but she can see every color if she looks through the marbles (as shown in the beginning of the first episode).
