Bass Pro Shops XPS Tungsten Worm Weights
Our Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Tungsten weights are now insert-free to allow greater sensitivity and easier line threading, particularly of thicker diameter lines. Environmentally safe, lead-free weights are 95% tungsten and 5% nickel. Since tungsten is much heavier and harder than lead, you can downsize your offerings, keep contact with the bottom, and increase sound attraction! Our bullet shaped Worm Weights slip through cover naturally, with a concave base to cradle the worm in place.

Tungsten is also much harder than lead which causes a tungsten weight to make more noise when it comes in contact with structure such as rocks.
Tungsten is a lot more expensive than lead, which is the main downside to using tungsten, but the advantages tungsten offers make this negligible in a lot of situations. The other downside that can occur with the tungsten weights is I've come across a few brands that were not made all that well, causing line fraying and ultimately breakage issues, but many brands have encountered this issue and resolved it.
why would i want to use different colors?
To be honest I'll just as soon throw an unpainted weight as compared to one that is colored.
So it depends on what color baits you mainly use. I also like black when I'm fishing stained water because the contrast helps draw their attention in murky water
