Three green Adegan crystals.
"They're Adegan crystals—precious and hard to find. Jedi use them to make the best lightsabers."

Adegan crystals were commonly used by Jedi as a main component of a lightsaber. Also known as "Ilum crystals", these rare Force-reactive stones were primarily found in the Adega system. A fair amount of these crystals could also be found on the planet Halm, on Mygeeto[1], and in parts of the Cularin system asteroid belt.

The vast majority of lightsaber crystals from Ilum were green or blue in color, but all of them had the special properties that made them ideal for a Jedi's weapon. When induced by resonant frequencies, the crystals emitted powerful bursts of light, and further components of a lightsaber harnessed this power into a rod-like beam.

Adegan crystals had a special connection to the Force, and it was through their use that Jedi created a bond between themselves, the Force, and their weapon. The Adegan crystals in a lightsaber gave off a weak Force signature that could be sensed by any Jedi.

After the execution of Order 66, the Galactic Empire banned possession of all crystals capable of use in a lightsaber.


Types of Adegan crystal

A cache of rare pontite crystals.
  • Kathracite was the most common form of Adegan crystal, followed by relacite and danite. These crystals didn't focus energy as well as their rarer cousins, and thus were usually reserved for use in training sabers.
  • Mephite was a typical Adegan crystal used by the Jedi.
  • Pontite was the rarest and most powerful type of Adegan crystal. Nearly impossible to find, it resonated with a powerful aura that cooled both skin and tempers.
