Default Bright Chrome 1911, Grip Suggestions?

I don't want to do white pearl because I feel like that's what everybody has. I think a black pearl might look alright. What I really want is something blue that has a smooth, stone look to it. I haven't been able to find anything online.

I just ordered what were supposed to be blue pearl with a "gritty" finish off eBay. Turned out that gritty just meant wooden.

Anyone seen anything like what I'm looking for? Or have any suggestions on what might look cool on a chrome 1911? Thanks

Take a look at Olympus's grips. There's a beautiful burl set that almost looks like turquoise. Posts 285 & 287
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams
