Flourite Dark (Experience & Photos?)

I have searched the forums and google but couldn't find anything..

Anyone has some overall & close up photos of flourite dark?

I found a lot of photos on flourite black/black sand, regular & red, but nothing at all on flourite dark.

I have flourite black and black sand in my tank so i know very well how they look. I am planning to setup a new tank and I want to try to use the flourite dark, but I want to get an idea as to how the substrate would look first.
my LFS is also selling the flourite dark approx. 20% less than flourite black for some reason.

If no photo is avail., does anyone have experience with using the substrate, how is the textures and sizes? And any comment on plant growth?

It's great. I have it in my 6 gallon. Sorry, no closeups, but I can post a pic of the tank...just a sec.

Thanx for the pic!!!
wow...maybe its the lighting, but it looks a lot lighter than I thought + there seems to be a lot more color variation than the flourite black.

There is a bit of variation in it. When I first got it, it looked REALLY dark and all one color. But after I rinsed it and it settled in the tank, it does have a bit of variation in the color of each piece.

The lighting isn't all that bright. It's a 15 watt bulb on a 6 gallon nano-cube. I'm not sure what k it is, but I'll check when I get home. It's just the bulb that came with the fixture. It's kind of a yellow color.
