I remember reading a while ago and I am unable to locate where I found it. But in Lore, are lightsabers with a black core for the blade considered to use a corrupted crystal?

In lore, crystals that produce black blades dont exist at all, they are considered un-canon.

Until Clone Wars did yet another stupid thing to the lore?
The Morrowbringer Legacy The Red Eclipse (PvE) [EU]
Deep into that darkness peering, you reach out your hand and grasp what you are searching for.
Now ring the bells that sweep away the darkness; the bells that beckon tomorrow's dawn.

Answer is probably in "colour crystals and the lore" thread, can't be bothered reading it to find out though, as it is extremely long. Link is below.

Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.

Depends, are you talking about the tv series or the darksaber incident that occured during that era. Either way it doesnt matter, the tv series, no matter what george lucas says, conflicts with too many other things to be considered anywhere close to canon, and I dont care about the darksaber either.

When you say conflicts with too many other things, do you mean with the books or with the movies?

With the lore in general. I doubt they would knowingly make a conflict with the prequel trilogy, but neither do I think they would be particularly careful about checking that. They also dont seem to care about the EU.
