I believe Yoda has lived long enough(400-500 years+-) to know where are the sources of crystals, he might be able to help Luke find it, or he even might have a spare one, and also the spirit of obiwan could guide him too.
Thinking of it I remember Luke first has Anakin's saber given by Obiwan, I think it was in empire strikes back that he went to Yoda for training, and before he could complete his training, he has a vision that his friends are in danger, so he left to save them at the cloud city, although Yoda persuaded him not to, which happen to be Vader's plan to carbonate him alive(and tested on Han Solo), then after the duel with Vader he lost his hand and his saber. He was then rescued by Leia & Lando gang, and after he got his new robotic hand and he went back to Yoda only to find him dying of age. There is a high possibility that he found the green crystal from Yoda's home.
Hey allen, You could try and be Luke Skywalker if you want a character that lives. ;D
I kind of like green crystal lately since Bultar's saber is green.
Hi Master Plo, Sorry I can't recall. I just check star wars data bank, indeed he was nine hundred years old, Yoda had trained Jedi for eight centuries.
Before I forget, I think Luke doesn't have any choice on the colour of the crystal, because if he lives in the era of the Jedi council, he would have a choice of what he wants to be, be it jedi consular, guardian or whatever.
Well as the last of the Jedi he might just have to accept what he may find or fated to find. As Allen/ Plo put it 'the crystal chooses the Jedi'. So the force wills it that the green crystal he found is the one meant for him.

Thanks for chiming in JadenLee. Your statement seems to imply that he has taken the Green Crystal from Yoda's home in between the events after THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI. Your source please?
It is generally accepted that Luke Skywalker constructed his Green Lightsaber before he paid Jabba's palace a visit and before returning to Dagobah to pay Yoda a last goodbye in ROTJ.

Sorry I guest I got mixed up after reviewing bit by bit of all 6 SW DVDs last year(I haven't got time to see them all at once), I just did a checking on the book on ROTJ, you are right on the fact that Luke did return to Dagobah only after he has rescued Han solo and having new lightsaber in ROTJ. I thought he had returned to Yoda before not after and therefore the conclusion that he got the crystal from Yoda's home. Its my guess and opinion from what I can recall.
But now I still think that since he was Yoda's student, he either has a spare crystal from Yoda before he left for Bespin. He could be carrying with him on his belt pouch(t is an essential item), the rest of the parts he may have to source it ;D

I still like to believe that the Rebels landed on the outskirts of tatooine & went to obi wans place to lay down the final plans... Lando may have arrived earlier to infiltrate Jabba palace as a bodyguard for hired.... so maybe in between this time when Luke is at Obiwans place ... he senses the force drawing him to the box in which Obi wan kept Anakins saber... Luke opens it & finds Qui Gons saber inside... the green crystal draws him as do the Consular Jedi within him.... feeling what he feels in the force, it may have compelled him to construct a new saber (also the fact that he didn't have, he wud have needed one). Once done he puts it in R2 & then the droids r sent out.... then Leia (Boush) & Chewie go in... ..... just to piece together a bit of what everyone has put together Sounds more & more believable
As the Circle now is complete in the Star Wars Saga, the responsibility of keeping the passion alive is in our hands.
I was eventually planning to do a Luke black Ep6 costume, since u mentioned it Jaden hehe it looks easy but I'm sure theres more than meets the eye!!
Hey Allen, Luke's black shirt looks to me like any simple shirt with high collar, the difficult part I think is the vest & sash which is lighter black(I wonder if it has any tabard at all), the belt buckle is a simple piece of metal, any black pants and black boot/ boot cover will do. and cut your hair ala Luke style ;D

.. Lando may have arrived earlier to infiltrate Jabba palace as a bodyguard for hire....
Let me fill you on a bit of detail here. Yes Lando arrived in Tatooine earlier (together with Leia and Chewbacca ). How he obtained his disguise is true to his character as a dashing rouge gambler. It was chronicled in the Tales from Jabba's Palace that Lando actually WON his Skiff Guard Disguise from the previous owner, TAMTEL SKEEJ. The disguise is soo effective that even Boba Fett , whom Lando met in Cloud City was unable to suspect who he was until the Battle at the Sarlacc Pit!
