The different colors that can arise when a vanadium solution is combined with elemental mercury is shown in the vanadium video from Periodic Videos
The 5th group of the periodic table contains the elements vanadium, niobium, tantalum and the element dubnium, which does not occur in nature but can be produced artificially. It is also known as the vanadium group after its first member. All metals from the group have similar chemical properties, especially niobium and tantalum are very similar and usually occur together in nature.
