I didnt have a 50 or a way to earn these early enough so apparently I cant get a purple lightsaber crystal anymore. Will there be a way to get them? Maybe from the Cartel Market?

They are still in the game, like the Cyan crystals. Purple comes from columi weapons on the imp side, and cyan from columi weapons on the pub side. If you want them on a toon of the opposite faction, stick them in the BoL crossbows from the chevin event and send em over. If you didnt get those crossbows.... then you're SoL

Correct, as well as cyan from pub columi weapons. The only way to get them on the opposite faction atm, besides spending millions on the GTM, is to use a BoL bowcaster to send it to your toon on the other faction. That does not mean they are getting rid of them, theyre just hard to get.....actually, they are not that hard to get, just run battle of ilum with a bunch of bounty hunters or warriors, need on the offhand, and buy the merc/mara offhand from the columi vendor . As a sidenote, all other offhands have yellow crystals, the generators, shields, vibroknives and such
