Memory disk made from sapphire could outlast human civilization

...The disk is made from two thin disks of industrial grade gemstone, about eight inches across. It's estimated a single disk can store 40,000 miniature pages of pictures and/or text before the disks are molecularly fused together. The prototype disks, which cost an estimated $30 thousand to create will be submerged in acid to simulate ageing and test durability.

Of course, reading it in several thousand years is likely to be a problem, depending on the machines then available.
