* There is a NSFW manga wherein the princess of a fantasy country had the power to have her tears and such become gemstones. Unfortunately for her, some unscrupulous people revolt and take her prisoner, doing unspeakable things to her to make her cry more and create more gems to sate their greed. In the end, RealityEnsues: the sudden influx of gemstones wrecks the country's economy due to their subsequent devaluation, and the poor princess is discovered in a miserable state when her captors are ousted.

* ''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.)

* 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.
