<Lightsaber Construction>
The construction takes place in a cave on Ilum.The padawan goes in by himself and will only come back out when he has made a Lightsaber.

"The crystal is the heart of the blade.
The heart is the crystal of the Jedi.
The Jedi is the crystal of the Force.
The Force is the blade of the heart.
All one intertwined
The crystal,The blade,The Jedi.
You are the one."
--Speech during the Lightsaber construction ceremony.

<Construction details>
The Lightsaber is made up of a short polished metallic cylindrical tube (usually around 30cm/1 foot) that emits an energy beam that acts as a sword blade.All Lightsabers contain some common basic components:
-A handgrip
-An activation stud plate,switch,button,or internal Force-activated mechanism
-A safety or dead man's switch
-An emitter matrix
-A primary focusing crystal (which gives the blade its hue)
-Up to two secondary crystals which produce different effects
-A lens assembly (focusing crystals)
-A blade-length adjuster ( only on Dual-Phase Lightsabers with at least two crystals)
-A miniature power cell (with unlimited power,requires little recharging)
-An energy gate
-A power conduit
-A recharge socket (recharges the power cell when the Lightsaber is off)
-Cycling field energizers
-A belt ring (optional)

The color of the Lightsaber blade depends on the crystals used to focus it.
