"The Rur crystal. Safety basal level activated! I can work with this!"
―Doctor Chelli Aphra[6]

The Rur crystal was a unique crystal that served as the computer core for the ancient Ordu Aspectu's space station-fortress, the Citadel of Rur. The crystal later became the vessel for the artificial intelligence of Eternal Rur, which was the corrupted consciousness of the Ordu Aspectu's leader, Rur. Doctor Chelli Aphra obtained the crystal[3] in 0 ABY[2] during the twilight of the Ordu Aspectu.[3] Eventually, the crystal fell into the hands of Emperor Palpatine, and was put in his private collection.[5]
