SOLUTIONS OF NICKEL AND ZINC CHLORIDE<br />
Group IVa (14) Transition Metals in Solution<br />
Most transition metals are colored,  zinc compounds are not because the 3d orbitals are filled (which discounts it as a transition element) & the transfer of electrons from lower to higher energy orbitals can't occur.   Aqueous NiCl2 is green.
