A crystal is a regularly-ordered solid mineral.

In the Earth comedy movie The Court Jester, the chalice with the palace was made out of crystal. (ENT: "Doctor's Orders")

Orientine acid was capable of burning through nearly anything except the crystal that made up the vial it was housed in. (TAS: "The Survivor")

The surface of the planet Cepheus was described as crystalline. (TAS: "The Terratin Incident")

A quote claimed that sculptures were crystallized spirituality. In 2256, Michael Burnham recalled the quote but not who said it. (DIS: "The Vulcan Hello")

Data experimented with producing vibrations in a crystal by means of graviton pulses, which Doctor Kila Marr later compared with tapping a crystal goblet. This technology was implemented to make contact with the Crystalline Entity and was later used by Dr. Marr to kill the creature. (TNG: "Silicon Avatar")

Captain Jean-Luc Picard kept a small transparent crystal on the desk in his ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-D. He often played with the small stone when he had to make an important decision. (TNG: "Conspiracy", "Where Silence Has Lease", "Suddenly Human", "A Matter of Time", "The Masterpiece Society", "Conundrum"; Star Trek Generations) His first officer, William T. Riker, also did so on occasion. (TNG: "Gambit, Part I")

The shapeshifting locket Odo received from the Rakhari Croden was identified by Doctor Julian Bashir as an amalgam of organic matter and crystal. (DS9: "Vortex")
