* In the ''Roleplay/GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', one of the mystic "trinkets" the [[EldritchAbomination Ancient-God-Turned-Supervillain]] Dagon possesses is the "Eye of Aztathoth", a huge spherical crystal that allows him to spy on nearly every location on earth at will. At first the hero just thought it was an ultra-powerful version of the standard crytal ball, but it was later revealed to be [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin an actual eye from the dead god Azathoth]].


** At one point in ''VideoGame/WorldOfFinalFantasy'' you need to reach a Sunken Temple, so [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Shanttotto]] casts a water breathing "spell" on you. Too bad it's actually a curse that also prevents you from breathing '''air'''. She has an antidote she's willing to give you, but first you need to bring her the Red Crystal Tear of the local monster penguin queen. Something that is only shed once every several decades and is worth tens of millions, lucky she's apparently scared to death of men so freaks out and starts crying as soon as Lann peeks into her thrown room.

* The treasure that Jing eventually claimed in the first episode of ''Manga/KingOfBanditJing'' is the crystallized tears that formed when Cidre was reunited with her mother. [[ArcVillain Cognac]] complains that he's tried making the mermaid cry many times before, but it never turns into jewel, to which Jing responds that tears of sadness and TearsOfJoy are very different, and the latter is what created the jewel. Note that this only occur in the Anime version. In the original manga, the mermaids' tears didn't turn into jewel, and Jing looted some of Cognac's other treasures instead.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', the Gems have this as their basic biology (or would that be [[JustForPun geology]]?). When they get hurt too much, they poof back into a gemstone to take time to heal and then reform.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' had two groups in G1: Twinkle Eyed Ponies (or just Tinkle-Eyes) and the first three years of Princess Ponies. Twinkle-Eyes are ponies with gems as eyes. The cartoon never went into why that was, but one comic story explained that Twinkle-Eyes were ponies that were once enslaved by the Jewel Wizard and forced to work in his mines. There, their eyes lost their compatability with daylight. When freed, shards of the Jewel Wizard's throne were lodged into enslaved ponies' eyes, which returned their sight to them. Princess Ponies, meanwhile, are just fancier than common ponies and have embedded jewels instead of regular cutie marks. The first sets anyway. The last set of jewel-themed Princess Ponies have regular cutie marks and a gem embedded into their forehead.


* In ''Fanfic/EquestriaDivided'' Rarity suffers from a disease that does this rather [[BodyHorror messily]], among other thing moving causes her to bleed due to the crystals on her skin grinding her insides and it's implied she'll either [[AndIMustScream become immobile until she starves or petrifies entirely]].

* In ''Fanfic/EquestriaDivided'' Rarity suffers from a disease that does this rather [[BodyHorror messily]], messily]]; among other thing things, moving causes her to bleed due to the crystals on her skin grinding her insides insides. Her left foreleg and the left side of her face have transformed into crystal thus far, and it's implied that eventually she'll either [[AndIMustScream become immobile until she starves starves]] or petrifies [[TakenForGranite petrify entirely]].


* In ''The Legend of Royal Blue and La Sylphide'', when La Sylphide isn't there to purify [[GottaCatchEmAll shards from Simon the Magician's mirror]], Duusu draws power from Gabriel to blow kwami bubbles for temporarily containing them by drinking his tears. She ''could'' take a hair or a drop of blood, but they're [[PickyEater too icky to swallow]].



* 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.

* In [[VideoGame/DarkSouls]], the Curse status will turn an Undead to crystal once it fills up the status meter. Seath the Scaleless has an attack that [[GemstoneAssault makes crystals erupt from the ground]] that increase Curse buildup when touched, and has several crystal "statues" in his arena. Oddly, other crystal attacks aren't tied to curse and the main monster that uses Curse, [[DemonicSpiders Basalisks]], aren't connected to crystals.

* 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 ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' series) as they are never referred to as blood, but as a rare metal containing the essence of an infernal's LifeEnergy.

* ''WebComic/UnicornJelly'': as a child, Chou was bitten by a Crystal Basilisk, something which is usually fatal as it causes the victim to crystallize and eventually form into a new basilisk. Somehow, she was partially cured by Uni and Lupiko, but has left as a [[SuperIntelligence superhumanly intelligent]] EmotionlessGirl with a ring of crystals growing from her head. Because he parents rejected her, she was taken in by Lupiko,

** It's mentioned offhand that [[UltimateBlacksmith Eldritch]]'s blood is in fact ''bloodsteel'', and a heck of a lot of it; Elyzia Grimes says that means her creation was probably the result of a massive ritual sacrifice. It's not - she just took the form of a recurring magical construct when a spiritual parasite finally manifested, but as she jokes, she could likely spot-weld something by slitting her wrist.


** In the manga and its direct anime adaptation ''Brotherhood'', he Philosopher's Stone is [[spoiler:the crystallized souls of several sacrificial victims transmuted into anything from a stone to a liquid to a crystal]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'', [[TheArchmage Archmasters]] who AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence often leave behind ''sarira'', remnants of their bodies that are transmuted into crystalline {{Mana}}. These artifacts have potent innate magical abilities, like an emerald femur that can create MixAndMatchCritters; they can also be tapped for their Mana, which is roughly as wasteful as burning a Rembrandt to cook a hot dog.
