Is there a difference between black and grey soapstone when oiled

I am having a hard time finding black soapstone but have found grey soapstone. My goal is to get a smooth black countertop and love soapstone. The guy at the stone yard said there isn’t much difference when oiled. Is that true? I’m worried the grey soapstone will look dark grey and not black. This is for a laundry room countertop so it will not get heavy use. Am I worrying over nothing if I go with the grey soapstone? ive attached pics of the slab we are looking at with oil rubbed on the corner.
