It is difficult without further description.  A light green to blackish colour could signify tissue necrosis, it could signify some type of infection (typically pseudomonas), and if there are holes in the lung then that could be tuberculosis.  Whatever the issue is, if you are concerned that you could be infected, then you shouldn’t be worried as these are all formalin soaked lungs, so everything will microbiologically dead.  Perhaps you can discuss this with your tutor to get more insight.
