There are many different quarries Of Salt and Pepper, some light, some darker, the veining is consistent however for large projects and matching ensure all the raw material comes from the same quarry.

Granite: Granite is a common and widely occurring type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock. Granites are usually medium to coarse grained, occasionally with some individual crystals larger than the groundmass forming a rock known as porphyry. Granites can be pink to dark grey or even black, depending on their chemistry and mineralogy.
