It’s unknown how a rainbow gem may affect the blade color of a lightsaber. In other words, we don’t actually know if a rainbow gem would necessarily produce a rainbow blade.

Notably, a ‘rainbow gem’ is actually not a gem at all, but rather a silicon-based life form originating from Gallinore, a planet in the Hapes Cluster. The gems take a thousand years to mature. Rainbow gems are commonly used in medallions. Tenel Ka Djo’s usage of treasured rainbow gems in her lightsaber makes her lightsaber one of the most expensive lightsabers of her time.
