* 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.]]

* The world of ''Literature/TheGodslayerChronicles'' by JamesClemens is built on this troupe. The nine humorals (bodily fluids) of the Gods have the power to grant Graces. The humorals are ''highly'' valuable and are willingly given and stockpiled in glass vials (natural materials, like wood stone or metal, will leech grace from the humoral... the process of turning sand to glass somehow negates this). Black markets for stolen humorals exist. The nine humorals are: ''Blood'' - Necessary for any other humoral grace to flow; ''Masculine Seed/Feminine Menses'' - Grants graces to living things; ''Sweat'' - Grants graces to inanimate objects; ''Tears'' - Increases the potency of other humorals; ''Saliva'' - Decreases the potency of other humorals; ''Phlegm'' - Allows graces to manifest outside physical objects; ''Yellow Bile (Piss)'' - Temporarily grants graces; ''Black Bile (Shit)'' - Nullifies graces.
