Where can I learn to craft an Advanced Black-Purple Crystal?

I did find a site that says you can Reverse engineer it but for me all I see is "no research available"

I'm not talking about the Advanced Black-Purple Striated one for being a sub in March 2015, Just the plain black core one

Unfortunately you can no longer learn that schematic or any of the crystal schematics that you could get from REing (Black Red, Black Blue, Cyan, Purple, Black Purple, Black Orange).
May the Force be with you. Long live The Old Republic.

Well if it's a bug then that stinks but hopefully we can get a fix soon, thank you both for answering my question.

It is NOT a bug. In the 4.x patch notes (I forget which specific patch) it says that they removed the ability to RE color crystals dropped in Operations and removed the ability to RE anything crafted by another character.

CS is wrong, plain and simple. Would not be the first time.

from your patch notes that you reference. only thing they stopped allowing was gear from being RE

also went and read all the other patch notes after, and no where did they change it to where we could no longer RE crystals

so If I go into my item stash, and click on item modifications my crystals wont be in there? try again boss. they are modifications. and certainly not gear or weapons.

I don't make up the rules. That was the "justification" they gave back then.

Something else I realized while posting in another thread. There are two game mechanical distinctions between color crystals and all other end game item modifications:

#1 Color crystals do not require sliced parts at all. Color crystals (and dye modules) require TH materials while barrels, hilts, armorings, mods, enhancements, and augments all require sliced parts to craft.

#2 Color crystals schematics that were once acquired by RE of drops require grade 6 materials where all other end game item modifications since this change require higher than grade 6 materials (7, 8 , 9 or 10).

Therefore it is easy enough to separate Color crystals from the rest of item modifications in the database.
