* The reason for this trope is because crystals have been suggested as a storage medium for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_data_storage holographic memory]].

** [[http://www.southampton.ac.uk/news/2016/02/5d-data-storage-update.page The University of Southampton has developed 5D data storage]]; a coin-sized glass disk that can hold ''360 TB'' for 13.8 ''billion'' years and is far more resilient than other data storage methods. Easily the closest this trope has come to TruthInTelevision.

TruthInTelevision with the fact that deep inside all of the plastic cladding, all solid-state electronic devices are based on crystalline semiconductors; also, in that a three-dimensional storage matrix should in theory, and once the engineering problems around heat dissipation and signal routing can be solved, offer orders of magnitude greater information density for a given volume than any possible refinement of the essentially two-dimensional storage methods in use today.

* In ''Literature/CourtshipRite'', one of the Kaiel's most sacred relics is a large crystal disc they call "the Frozen Voice of God". No one had any idea it contained data, though, until Kathein developed a machine to read it, showing that it mostly contained gene sequences. Oelita turns out to have another one that she has no idea of what it is. When read it turns out to be a history book on warfare from ancient Earth.
