He has green and bronze scales. His green scales are a dark green, the green of moss in the deep woods at dusk, just before the light fades, and they gleam like jade. His eyes are bronze, brighter than polished shields, and they glow with their own heat. His flame is orange-and-yellow fire shot through with veins of green.
A Game of Thrones
Rhaegal's egg was a deep green, with burnished bronze flecks that came and went depending on how Dany turned it.
Mirri Maz Duur proclaimed that in order to bring new life one had to give life. Daenerys burned Drogo's body, along with the maegi Mirri Maz Duur herself and the three eggs to give birth to Rhaegal, along with his brothers, Viserion and Drogon.

When Daenerys receives the news of the Usurper's death green Rhaegal is on her lap. Beneath her gentle fingers he stares at Quhuru Mo with eyes of molten gold. When his mouth opens his teeth gleam like black needles.

A Feast for Crows
A Dance with Dragons
Rhaegal mortally burns Quentyn Martell with dragonfire in the dragon pits of Meereen when Martell tries to tame the dragons.  Once loosed from the pit Rhaegal makes his new lair in the great black pyramid of Yherizan where he hulks in the gloom like a fat woman bedecked with glowing orange jewels. The Pyramid is now a smoldering ruin and its former occupants are either dead or in flight.
