Crystal Pillar

Final Fantasy VIII

In Final Fantasy VIII the Crystal Pillar is a huge crystal that actually causes the Lunar Cry, and is thought to have originated from the moon.
It produces a strong energy field between the planet and the moon, and in a specific location it sends a directional signal to the moon that starts the Lunar Cry.

The Estharians excavated it from the mountains between Esthar and Trabia during the second Sorceress War. The Lunatic Pandora was then built around it.

Final Fantasy XIII

In Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 the Crystal Pillar is holding up the fallen world of Cocoon. It is the crystallized form of Oerba Dia Vanille and Oerba Yun Fang, two l'Cie from Gran Pulse who almost destroyed the artificial world before deciding to save it.

For the duration of hundreds of years, the Crystal Pillar stood and supported Cocoon. But within it was deteriorating. This was due to the harmful effect of monsters within Cocoon, and perhaps some inherent structural faults as well although the latter is unclear.
