    On the AOTC promo commercials, the captions on Anakin and Obi-Wan's personal commercials use "Crystal Lightsaber(s)." On Mace Windu's, however, the caption reads "Electrum Lightsaber." I honestly don't know what the difference is (I thought all sabers were made using Agedan crystals), but apparently there is one now. My theory is that it is just something GL is using to cover his a$$ to explain the purple blade within the context of the SW universe.

    I always thought blade color was dependent on the crystal's color. If that's true, then a lightsaber could be any color the crystals are.

    As for this "new" lightsaber, maybye its just wired differently or something. Or maybye I'm just sounding like an idiot cause I don't know enough about lightsabers.

    I have since found more about Electrum sabers. It doensn't refer to the blade, but the hilt. If you look at Mace's promo when he's in the arena, he has a golden hilt. This privilege is reserved for Council members only.
