Seeing this question How do I get a Magenta Lightsaber Crystal?, I see that there are more lightsaber colors than I thought.

I know there are:

  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Purple
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Yellow + Dark center (preorder)

What else is there?

(Cobbled together from Torhead, the SWTOR forums, dulfy.net, and personal experience; ordered by quality/how you can get them.)

Standard

Green items. Requires low-level artifice to craft (items at level 7 and above); found in standard weapons.

Prototype

Blue items.

  • All the above

  • Orange (first drops are level 31; artifice-craftable beginning with level 47)

Artifact

Purple items.

  • All the above (Orange level 50 schematics drop from the Primal Destroyer world boss on Belsavis)

  • Magenta, AKA "Light Red" (must be crafted; not to be confused with Purple)

Operations Drops

The PvE versions drop from Explosive Conflict, Terror from Beyond, and Scum and Villainy. They can be reverse engineered to learn the crafting schematic. The PvP versions come directly from the PvP Items vendor and cannot be learned via RE.

  • Black-Orange

  • Black-Purple

  • Black-Red

  • Black-Blue

  • Cyan, AKA "Light Blue" (PvP schematic drops from Grade 6 PvP crafting boxes)

  • Purple (PvP schematic drops from Grade 6 PvP crafting boxes)

Cartel Pack Crystals

These crystals can be sold on the GTN or traded/mailed after a lockout period. There were no crystals in Shipment 4.

Shipment 1: Cartel Packs

  • White (all packs except Black Market)

  • Pink-Purple (Black Market and Crime Lord's packs)

  • Cyan-Blue (Blockade Runner's pack)

  • Orange-Red (Skip Tracer's pack)

  • Lime-Green (Space Pirate's pack)

  • Derelict-Purple (Regulator's and Enforcer's packs)

  • Silver-Blue (Vice Commandant's pack)

  • Mint-Green (Archon's pack)

  • Copper (Supreme Mogul's pack)

Shipment 3: Bounty Packs

  • Hot Orange (all packs except Contractor's)

  • Blood Red (Contractor's and Freelancer's packs)

  • Blue Core (Pursuer's pack)

  • Charred Orange (Tracker's pack)

  • Yellow Blue (Opportunist's pack)

Shipment 5: Stronghold Packs

  • Gold Core (all Stronghold packs except Builder's)

  • Blue Outline (Builder's and Gatekeeper's pack)

  • Pink Core (Constable's pack)

  • Sea Green (Seneschal's pack)

Cartel Market Crystals

These are sold directly from the Cartel Market and do not appear in the gambling packs.

  • Orange-Yellow

  • Green Core

Special

  • White (world boss drop during beta; sold on the fleets prior to Patch 1.2)

  • Black-Green (Rakghoul Outbreak and Rakghoul Resurgence event rewards)

Discontinued

These are still in the game but can no longer be acquired if you don't have them already:

  • Black-Yellow (for pre-ordering the game)

  • Razer Black/Green (for buying a Razer SWTOR peripheral. This is a different color than the standard Black/Green; see this image.)

Unavailable

These are part of the game assets but have not been made generally available:

  • Black-Cyan

  • Black-White (the inverse of White-Black)

This was just a quick search. :) Feel free to add what I missed, or post your own list. –  Ashley Nunn Jan 12 '12 at 3:56
    
There's also the Green/Black from buying a Razor peripheral. –  Raven Dreamer Jan 12 '12 at 16:25
