Faceted electrum

Electrum was a type of purple and blue crystal found in the Anoat sector of the galaxy.[1] The crystal could be used as a finish to give weaponry and armor a reflective gold sheen.[2]

The hilt of Mace Windu's lightsaber possessed a rare electrum finish,[3] as did the lightsabers of Darth Sidious. The armor and personal F-11D blaster rifle of First Order Commander Pyre also had an electrum finishing, giving them a reflective gold sheen.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Electrum was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the 2015 reference book Ultimate Star Wars.[4] It first appeared in the mobile game Star Wars: Uprising, where it can be won from in-game events and is used to upgrade powerful gear and Crew Members.[1] It was originally introduced the Star Wars Legends continuity in the 1996 West End Games roleplaying guide Shadows of the Empire Sourcebook by Peter M. Schweighofer.[5]

In the real world, electrum is a naturally occurring alloy of gold and silver, with trace amounts of copper and other metals.
