Personally I really do not like the bleed explanation.
The sith forged their own crystals in the works I have read and since it was really the same process every time that is why the crystals they make is always red. That is a good explanation in my book so I am going to stick with that one until stupid writers forces me not to (I a have always prefered the Legends niverse anyway).

The numer of crystals in a lightsaber as far as I know can be as many as three, at least I have not seen or read that their could be more. The earliest mention that I have seen is during the Jedi Academy thrilogy when Exar Kun's ghost teaches Gantoris how to make a lightsaber. The extra crystals gave the effect that you could lenghten the blade to almost twice the normal length in the middle of combat.
