Dolomite is a pretty good grey sand. Dolomite is a carbonate rock, but one that doesn't easily dissolve, even in low pH water. If you are doing 50% weekly water changes, I doubt that it will affect the KH or GH enough to be concerned about. And, it can be cheap.

Seachem's Onyx Sand and Gray Coast Calcite, which are the same sand with different packaging, are a gray color. They will work in a planted aquarium, but they buffer the water a little bit.
