Crystals in Sailor Moon
In the Sailor Moon universe, there existed various crystals imbued with magical powers. Both the protagonists and antagonists made use of crystals, and desired to locate, destroy, or utilize specific crystals throughout the series. The most well known of these crystals was the Silver Crystal, the legendary crystal wielded by members of the Moon matriarchy. Both the Sailor Senshi and the Dark Kingdom wished to locate the Silver Crystal, along with the Moon Princess, in the first storyline of the manga, anime, and live-action series.
Other crystals include the personal crystals of every Sailor Senshi, known as the Sailor Crystals, which only appear by that name in the manga; the Golden Crystal, which had different backgrounds in the anime and manga (in the former it was held by Helios, in the latter it was Mamoru Chiba's Sailor Crystal); and several crystals used by enemies of the Sailor Senshi, including the Black Crystal and the Taioron Crystal.
