Silver Lightsabers in Star Wars Legends
Silver-bladed lightsabers are commonly constructed using a Durindfire crystal in Star Wars Legends. Originating from the planet Tatooine, the Durindfire crystal is a rare and valuable gem. The Galactic Empire extracted and sold some Durindfire crystals of Tatooine origin in order to help finance the building of the Death Star.
The Halcyon/Horn family, a notable family of Jedi from Corellia, traditionally use the Durindfire crystal in their lightsabers. The family follows different customs from the Jedi Order. For example, the Halcyon/Horn family Jedi would often choose to get married and have kids. The family also generally limits their peacekeeping activities to Corellian space. Kierian Halcyon and Corran Horn are notable Halcyon/Horn wielders of silver lightsabers.
Additionally, Alema Rar, a Twi’lek Jedi Knight in the New Jedi Order, constructs and wields a silver-bladed lightsaber before falling to the dark side. Players of the 2004 video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II (KOTOR II) may wield a silver lightsaber as well.
Silver Lightsabers in Real Life
Lightsaber enthusiasts will often use the term ‘silver lightsaber’ and ‘white lightsaber’ interchangeably. Custom saber company Ultrasabers calls their white-bladed lightsaber adegan silver, for example.
