The most prominent is repeated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, who chose the distinct hue so his character stood out during the coliseum climax of Attack of the Clones. Unfortunately, the lore-based answer is more vague. The closest explanation is in 2019 novel Master and Apprentice, starring Kenobi and Jinn eight years before The Phantom Menace. During a conversation about lightsabers, Kenobi explains how the weapons function.According to the apprentice, a kyber crystal is colorless until it connects with a Force user. Taking characteristics from the person, each one turns a shade, and produces a blade of the same hue. Kenobi said while blue and green are the most popular results, a few crystals even turn purple, suggesting Windu possessed qualities few had. Windus hilt had a rare electrum metal finish, befitting of his position in the Jedi High Council. It is presumed lost after falling out a Coruscant window in Revenge of the Sith (2005).
