Does anyone know? If you don't know what I'm talking about, I'm referring to the Mace Windu spotlight commercial on TV. When they go through the list of his stuff, it says Electrum Lightsaber, not Crystal Lightsaber like for everyone else. What's the difference, other than a way to explain the color of his Saber, between the two? If anyone knows, I'd really like to know.

Electrum is gold with a large percentage of silver in it.

Yeah, the words "Electrum Lightsaber" in the Mace Windu trailer is just talking about the plating that is on some of his lightsaber hilt. He's the head of the council, so is the only Jedi that has gold plating on his lightsaber hilt. We haven't seen if the green ones go by a different name other then Crystal Lightsaber. Most likely they don't, since even Mace's saber in the Star Wars Visual Dictionary points out the "crystal chamber". Here is a close up of his saber from that book.

Thanks, I knew someone would be able to answer that for me.
