As we all know, the lightsaber is one of the most deadly and interesting weapons in Star Wars. And not to mention the cool lightsaber colors such as blue and green blades that are used by the Jedi, the crimson red blades wielded by the Sith, and we can never forget about Mace Windu's purple bladed lightsaber, and the many other colors like black, white, yellow, orange, gold, bronze, and silver. But what some of us don't know is what these colors actually mean. Today your going to finally know what these colors mean, so lets start with the common ones first:
Blue is the color of the Jedi Guardian. Jedi Guardian's mainly focus on lightsaber training and protecting civilians. They're often known as the warriors of the Jedi Order, since they mainly focus on combat. The Jedi Guardians are the most skilled in lightsaber combat in the entire Jedi Order. These crystals are found on the planet Illum.

Green is the color of the Jedi Consular. Jedi Consular's mainly focus on force abilities and using negotiation to solve conflicts. Their main goal is to not use their weapon but will not hesitate to use if if they need to. Jedi Consular's have much more force abilities than Jedi Guardians, but their dueling skills aren't as persistent. These crystals are found on Illum.

Red is the color of the Sith and Dark Jedi. The reason for this is because red lightsaber crystals are more compatible with dark energy (used by the Sith and Dark Jedi) and even have the power to break a Jedi's lightsaber (but is very rare). Sith focus on the dark side of the force and can do things the Jedi can't, like shoot force lightning or force-choke people. These crystals are found on Illum (but are rare to find).

Now for the uncommon/rare lightsaber colors:
Yellow is the color of the Jedi Sentinel. Jedi Sentinel's focus on different abilities such as tracking, technology, and surveillance. Their main goal is to seek out and destroy traces of the dark side. They rarely operate at the Jedi Temple, since they usually go undercover in situations. Because of this, not many Jedi even know about their existence, as they do this on purpose to keep a low profile and patrol the galaxy. Basically, they're the Jedi who are willing to do what others are unwilling to do. These crystals are found on Illum.

Purple is the color of the Jedi who use both light side and dark side techniques. They are usually more aggressive with their fighting style, and rely on brute strength to over-power the enemy. This crystal is very rare and is barely ever seen.

Orange is the color of the Jedi who focus on negotiation and combat. It is often assumed that the orange lightsaber belongs to the Sentinel Class, but is not as often used as the yellow bladed lightsaber. These crystals are found on Illum.

Silver is used by Jedi who are very calm and focus on the living force as a whole. These crystals can be found on Illum.

White is used by force-users who have a very narrow single-minded view on the force. The users of this color often serve a master or a group with complete and udder obedience. These crystals are found on Illum.

Black (also called the darksaber) is used by force-users who are very narrow-minded but instead is devoted to ones self, rather than serving a group or a master. These crystals are very rare and only appear once. It appears in the Star Wars: the Clone Wars TV show.
