    Totally looks like the necklace is a Kyber crystal. Maybe Vaderís?
    Doubtful, considering Vader's hand and saber went down the reactor shaft when Luke sliced it off. I doubt he had time to do down there and retrieve it before the explosion. Unless it was another crystal Vader had on him as a back up.

    They will always find a way to manipulate what was seen before... Seems like a job all in itself in Hollywood..

    In the context of the rest of the pages for Luke, the "recovered jedi crusader pendant" sounds like just another of the artifacts that Luke found in the ruins of the first Jedi temple.

    My guess is that it is just a call-back to ancient history from the KOTOR age, when there were whole armies of Sith, and this is just a fragment of a red crystal from some ancient Sith warrior's lightsaber, collected as a trophy and turned into a pendant.

    Instead of it being some weird connection to Vader, I would think it is just something Luke found and chose to wear, perhaps as a reminder to himself that Jedi were defeating the Sith thousands of years before he ever existed, and that he was merely the last of the Jedi to accomplish the same thing.

    I really like the inclusion of these kinds of things. One thing I always wanted to see, but the old EU never really got into, was Luke going off to recover Jedi artifacts, teaching materials, etc. I think from time to time they mentioned Luke finding a holocron or something, but you never got to hear the story involved.

    So even though the necklace got a nice closeup shot, I dont think Luke ever wore it, and neither prop was really used. :/

    I wonder if that is how Luke was masking or shutting off the force. By surrounding his light side self with the dark side energy of a sith crystal, palpatine's compass, and the dark hole on the island. There is a lot of talk of balance in the film and that would be another way to achieve it.

    Just a thought.

    At best, this would be a loose connection to Revan when he was still a Jedi, rather than the crystal from his sith lightsaber.

    Even then, this theory only exists due to it being labeled "Recovered Jedi Crusader Pendant" in the TLJ Visual Dictionary, and the Revanchists also being known as the "Jedi Crusaders": http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Revanchist

    It is really just speculation based on the phrase "Jedi Crusader", which is pretty thin. Since this temple on Ahch-To would pre-date KOTOR, and this is an ancient artifact found there, I can't see how it would actually have any connection at all to Revan.

    It's still cool though!

    Worth mentioning that the compass also shows up on Ben’s table in the flashbacks. Wonder why?

    I kind of wish the fandom as a whole could just get away from KOTOR, but Iíve always preferred Tales of the Jedi, so Iím biased.

    Either that necklace is an old concept or people have jumped on it reaaaallll fast, because I have been seeing a lot glowing crystal star wars labeled necklaces on etsy. Not entirely accurate, but a similar concept.

    I think the compass is what Luke used to find the first Jedi temple on Ahch-To.

    Does anyone have any ideas about how big it is? When Luke holds it in the game, it looks about 2-1/2Ē diameter and maybe 1Ē thick when closed. Any other thoughts?

    I've started working on the necklace. I'm currently making a prototype out of wood, because I have that, planning to make molds from that and cast in acrylic in 3 pieces. I also ordered some "crystals" online to set in the finished version. Anyone have any thoughts on the wisdom or folly of this plan?

    Sounds good. Especially the idea of buying crystals to put inside the pendant. If you can find one thatís the correct size/shape, I think it will really finish the piece off.

    My plan is to build the necklace using a mixture of wooden dowel and 3D printed parts. I was going to make the crystal using clay, but now I really like your idea instead.
