* In ''{{Smallville}}'', it was also a crystal that [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome grows into the Fortress of Solitude]]. The Fortress quickly becomes the resident DeusExMachina, for good or for worse. It has since displayed the ability to (sometimes with added crystals) clone kryptonians, remove or restore kryptonian powers and/or memories, imprison kryptonian-grade beings, open a portal to the Phantom Zone, create an eclipse, and holding information as stated above. * ''SpaceCases'': The Android Thelma exhibited odd behavior throughout the show due to a memory crystal that Harlan accidentally damaged in the first episode. The main ship in the series, the ''Crysta'', also used similar technology.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' the Erisians appear to have used crystals as computers. In the modern era their Venusian descendants are able to store psychic energy in shards and make other powerful artefacts, such as the speaker's staff and the Venusian wood axe.

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 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.

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 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.

* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' has Hymn Crystals, which allows for songs (which are used as "magic" in the game) to be stored and later downloaded into Reyvateils.

* The [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork Mega Man Battle Network]] series has these... [[PlayingWithATrope Kinda.]] Unknown data takes the form of an 8-sided crystal, in three colors, green, blue, and purple. It's unknown whether or not this is actually crystalline though. * In ''[[VideoGame/MightAndMagic Might & Magic VI]]'', one plot stage is retrieving and installing four Memory Crystals for an ancient planetary computer. As a possible joke from developers, after you've knocked yourself out hunting for the crystals, there's a crate in the control center chock-full of the same crystals, lying around like trash.

* There do exist [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molecular_memory various experimental molecular-level storage technologies]] though they look and operate nothing like a gem.

* Mocked in ''Film/StarWreck: In the Pirkenning'', where the parody of Lt. Keffer of ''Series/BabylonFive'' is shot down by the P-Fleet and his flight data recorder is recovered. Being based on ''Babylon 5'' tech, it's in the form of a data crystal, and the Sheridan-analogue briefly thinks that Keffer [[TakenForGranite was turned into a crystal by aliens]] before being corrected.

* One episode of ''{{Eureka}}'' introduced Data Diamonds. Capable of storing utterly massive amounts of information on the molecular level. They needed [[PhlebotinumOverload proper hardware]] though as lesser computers [[ExplosiveOverclocking combusted]] from the extreme processing. * ''{{Alphas}}'', one episode featured a necklace made from some strange crystals, and they figure out that it stores information on specially arranged molecule structures. * In the first season of ''{{Fringe}}'', there were the glass disks and they were data storage devices, Massive Dynamic was able to read information from them.
