I purchased one of those black composite granite sinks to undermount in the kitchen and I love it ! The granite in my kitchen is quite busy so a dark sink was the perfect addition. Doesn't show much dirt, easy to clean and with the color being dark, it isn't very noticeable.

This sink is Soapstone. I don't really have experience with granite sinks, so I can't comment on that.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Grown-Up Ideas for Chalkboard Paint
House guests will know exactly where to find the cups when cabinets are marked with what's inside.
Ivon Street Studio added this to Kitchen Counters: Durable, Easy-Clean Soapstone
The basics: Soapstone is a natural stone composed largely of mineral talc, which lends the material the smooth feel of soap. Slab colors are typically medium gray and can have a greenish cast. Over time, the soapstone will darken to a deep charcoal. Slabs may contain pronounced veining, which is produced by quartz in the stone.Cost: $80 to $100 per square foot, installed
Soapstone Kitchen CountersOften used in laboratories for its resistance to stains, chemicals and bacteria, soapstone is a durable and natural choice for a kitchen.

soapstone is the only truly heat, stain resistant. The greener they are the softer, so go for less green for harder, since the main drawback is nicks and scratches
