I have read that they are part of weapons but dont understand how to go from there. Where do I get the weapons and then how do I get the crystal from them to put in my lightsaber?

Rakata vendor on Republic space station sells items with black/blue crystal. You can get tokens for them from Hardmode and nightmare operations.
But you don't want black-blue crystal. Black sabers are one of things that distinguish lame players with no respect to Star Wars from everyone else.
Besides that - even ascetic wise they are no more than glowing sticks. It's like running with training saber while everyone around have real lightsabers.

So, just because we like black, and you don't, we're inferior Star Wars fans to you?

Wow, that's insulting.

Thanks for telling us where these were located. I for one think that these colored light sabers look cool and give you something to stand out because of your achievements.

uh, yes?

Thats like saying you want a rainbow brite unicorn mount, and a masterchief outfit, while calling yourself a Jedi.

The black lightsabers simply dont exist in any form in the Star Wars universe, hence a fan that wont touch them is most likely a bigger star wars fan then the guy/gal who would.

I know. And you dont see me going around saying people who dont like black lightsabers are dou@#enozzles and full of themselves either. Everyone has their own things they think look cool. It doesnt make me less of a fan or I wouldnt be playing the game. So get off the high horse.

For real responses, what level do I have to be and where do I find those missions referenced?

There are precedents for all sorts of crazy lightsaber colors, actually:

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lightsaber_crystal

There's even a precedent for a black blade and a multi-colored "rainbow" blade.

I'm a pretty huge fan. I welcome crazy lightsaber colors - in fact, I think that's one of the best ways to continually expand itemization and differentiate more prestigious gear.

Personally, I would love a dual-rainbow bladed lightsaber - that would be so intense.

Level 50, and pretty much anywhere there is a flashpoint in general. You get those badges from hard modes -- or is it nightmare modes? Someone else will want to clarify for me, I think.

Personally speaking I don't like the mixed-color lightsabers, but that's an aesthetic thing rather than a difficulty with the canonical status of such things. They just look ugly to me. Though, the black-and-red works reasonably well.
