You could always go with the four historical alchemical states. Back when people though alchemy was possible.

They are Albedo (whiteness), Rubedo (redness), Nigredo (blackness) and Citrinas (which is yellow and not green but its still pale).

If you wanted to further distance yourself from the names sounding like actual colors you could also use the Greek names for those things.

Rubedo = Iosis
Albedo = Leucosis
Nigredo = Melanosis
Cintrinas = Xanthosis
