A Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge kyber crystal is small, crystal-shaped piece of plastic equipped with RFID technology. Kyber crystals come in one of 7 different colors: red, blue, green, purple, yellow, white, and black. The black kyber crystal is the rarest type of kyber crystal. Black kyber crystals randomly inserted into tubes marked as red kyber crystals.

Although the kyber crystal may be collected on its own, the kyber crystal is more commonly acquired for use with compatible products like the holocrons from Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities or the hand-built lightsabers from Savi’s Workshop.

Kyber crystals interact with Savi’s Workshop lightsabers and with holocrons from Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. The kyber crystal is installed in the chassis of a Savi’s Workshop lightsaber in order to ‘unlock’ a matching lightsaber blade color. For example, a red kyber crystal unlocks a red lightsaber blade and a blue kyber crystal unlocks a blue lightsaber blade. The only exception is the rare black kyber crystal, which unlocks a red blade and NOT a black lightsaber blade.

The kyber crystal also interacts with holocrons from Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities, unlocking the voice of Star Wars characters. Each kyber crystal unlocks two Star Wars characters: one light side character when the crystal is installed in a Jedi Holocron and one dark side character when the crystal is installed in a Sith Holocron. Although there are only 7 kyber crystal colors, most kyber crystal colors have at least 2 variations with different voices. You would need to collect 15 kyber crystals total in order to collect all combinations of the different character voices.
