Just some thoughts:

It is usually tight grained black granites (absolute and similar) that are harder to match. In some cases, resined granites can be difficult to match as well. Using the correct diamonds to as high of a grit as possible and polishing correctly with a good granite powder (in this case a dark granite powder) in combination with a crystallizer and steel wool usually works well. Some granites respond better to pure tin oxide too. If in fact the granite is resined, you may have to re-resin with an appropriate darkening product. There are several available that will do the trick.

How well can I expect this dark color granite to polish up. I don't want to give unrealistic expectations.
