More of a showerthought than a typical post here so delete if it's not allowed but I just realized that the rarity of lightsaber colors in the Star Wars universe roughly matches up to the availability of laser wavelengths. Yellow lightsabers are hard to come by, not even appearing in the main series, while red, green, and blue are the most common. Violet is an exception since only Mace Windu weilds a lightsaber of this color while it is fairly commonplace in handheld lasers, but the logic still kind of holds. The orange lightsaber is arguably the rarest, which matches up to lasers well. Somewhat interesting when you consider lightsabers are fantasy and could have been made into any color that the creator desired.
