Kyber crystals – Stygium crystal

Rarer than a selfless, altruistic and pacifist Hutt, these crystals are extremely difficult to find and locate, even where they are supposed to exist.

While the crystal is a key component in cloaking devices, some (even rarer) Stygium crystals can also be attuned to force users and be used in lightsabers. Legends tell of these crystals bestowing great powers of illusion upon the wielder.
