    Vanadium is the metal 

    vanadium forms metal aquo complexes of which the colours are lilac [V(H2O)6]2+, green [V(H2O)6]3+

    so your colours are right but the oxidation states are reversed. The lilac is +2 and the pale green oxidation state of vanadium is +3

    there are no metals that are green.

    copper oxide is green, perhaps that is what you want?
