Earlier this year, my trooper looted a magenta ( non-outline ) crystal schematic off a random standard mob at the Black Hole while grinding for the 10k kill achievement. This is a +41 stat item. It is not available in collections.

As for the schematics in PVP crates, I don't know, not playing much PvP myself so no idea what is in the crates.

The Magenta Crystals (at least the +41 one I never bothered with the lower variants) used to require special materials you needed to do some extra effort for.
Collecting Rough Adegean crystals from rare spawning mining spots on Alderaan, then water from the vaporators on Tatooine, freeze that up in the icy winds of Hoth. Head to Ilum to summon a rather challenging force ghost from a depleted adegean crystal formation after drinking the water and defeat it, then pick up another special crystal from the crystal formation for each person in the group that had the frozen water buff. That part was unique on pick up, you only ever could have one at the time in your inventory and/or bank. You then next had to merge the rough adegean crystal from Alderaan and the piece from Ilum into a refined adegean crystal on Korriban (only know where you had to go for the Empire) at a device at the back of some stone column in the valley where the tombs are. And then build the Magenta Crystal with it and the rest of normal grade 6 materials.

These days though the Magenta crystal is build like all the other crystals too, directly from the crafting window without any special material required any longer.

That part I do know, just wondered if that questline had been removed from the game with the crafting changes, much like being able to RE certain crystals to have a chance at learning the schematic. I still occasionally craft the Magenta crystal.

I used to have some alts parked on Alderaan at those rough crystal spawn locations, I think those are gone from the game, that force ghost on Ilum, since I couldn't find the the crystal formation where you could summon it when looking for it today I guess everything related to the Adegean Crystal stuff is gone.
Though it never was a real quest line, more like a puzzle to earn those special materials. Still added to the flair and the "explore the galaxy" feeling though.

Advanced Red-Black crystals can also be bought at Underworld Exchange vendor in Cartel Bazaar section of fleets. However, they cost CM Certificates, which are tricky to get (outside Night Life event their only source are old packs and the slot machine decoration). But at least, getting reputation with Underworld Exchange is easy.

Once in a blue moon I've had schematics for crystals drop as extra rewards from crew missions. I think maybe twice. It's always been for crystals that are one color, though. My artificer does have recipes for pink/purple, yellow/orange and yellow/blue but I am 99% sure those all came from the trainer.

You can craft 2 crystals that look similar to a purple colour
