Difference between different flourites?

Flourite, black, dark, red
Other than particle size and colour, what other differences are there really?

Edit: btw for a 130L (35g) tank how much flourite do I use? the 3.5k bag or 7k bag?

Not much difference, all are inert and flakey in structure. I used 2.5 x 7kg bags in my 30 long.

Flourite red is the coarser of the 3 colors (brown, black, red).
