Heart of a saber
According to the Star Wars Wiki, "at the heart of every lightsaber was a set of crystals that resonated to produce the efficient, powerful blade."
In keeping with traditional lightsaber construction techniques (hinted at in the movies and described throughout the expanded universe), Lewis incorporated a real crystal into the lightsaber (housed in a brass chamber).
