Since the Columi/Rakata/Tionese Vendors are going to be removed in GU 2.0 whats going to happen to the Cyan/Purple or the Black-Blue/Black-Red crystals on weapons? Will they still be purchasable?

As I understand it they will drop and be RE-able as people have stated above.

But, there will also be a new vendor on your factions vanguard vessel which will sell Columi, Rakata, and Battlemaster gear for Classic comms, so I'm sure you'll find the Purple/Cyan crystals in those.

Aha! That's good to know so they won't totally be unobtainable then. Although an interesting approach to the Black-Red/Blue crystals though. Never saw that one coming.
Thanks for the info!

EDIT: Although I'm confused, is that vendor going to be for Comms or Unassembled items?

The answer to your question is that these colors will now come from Reverse Engineering! The patch note reads:

Artifice now allows players to Reverse Engineer the following Advanced Indestructible, Advanced Hawkeye, and Advanced Eviscerating color crystals:
  • Black-Blue
  • Black-Red
  • Cyan
  • Purple
