"There is no place more sacred to the Jedi."
―Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano, regarding Ilum's Crystal Caves[src]

Ilum was an arctic planet located in the Unknown Regions. It was used by the Jedi Order for the Gathering, a rite of passage in which Jedi younglings must find and harvest kyber crystals for their lightsabers.

DescriptionEdit

The planet Ilum was situated in the Ilum system, a star system located in a region of the Unknown Regions known as the 7G sector.[1] Ilum was an arctic world; that is, the entire planet was covered in ice and snow, and was therefore inhospitable to most species.[4] Hidden beneath Ilum's frigid surface is what came to be known as the Crystal Caves. Within the maze-like Crystal caves grew kyber crystals, which brought the Jedi Order to Ilum, so they could harvest the crystals in a rite of passage known as the Gathering, in which Jedi initiates harvested their crystals by attuning themselves to the Force.
