Shamelessly nicked from FB

I've actually seen a body in a glass coffin on the island of Oinoússes off Híos in the convent of the Annunciation of the Virgin (Evangelismos tis Theotokou). The convent was built in 1962 at the wish of Katingo Pateras, grieving mother of a daughter of 20 years , Irini, who, after a life of genuine but precocious piety, died of cancer. Her father, Panagos Pateras, had contracted Hodgkin’s disease; it is said that Irini prayed that the disease be taken from her father and visited on her instead. The father improved or at least went into remission; the daughter fell ill; and after taking vows as a nun, she died in 1959. Three years later her body was exhumed and it was discovered that the corpse had not decayed, but rather had been preserved and desiccated by burial. Many , first and foremost Katingo Pateras,  saw this apparent miracle as a sign of her sainthood. The body of Irini is now kept in a glass coffin inside the convent built by her mother, who elected to become the community’s Abbess.

Most famous Greek ship owning families like Pateras have properties or private islands here and the Greek merchant marine uses this archipelago for navigation training.

Wasn't Floyd Collins body displayed in a glass topped coffin for a period in Crystal Cave?

Yes indeed it was - until it was stolen.
