Picked a piece of BP granite that was outside had nice specks of blue. When it was installed could not see the blues, just grays and silver.
Get better lighting.
I was looking at the Blue Pearl granite, too, to be used with a white veined marble. Do you think it is the lighting, or the actual slab you selected?
I think it's the lighting. I tried several types of bulbs and picked up a little blue. Even tried grow lights. I think you have to really look at the slab to determine how heavy the blue is.
