Aqua Cool vs Aqua White....and to Puerto Rico blend or not?

I need to make a quick decision on a stoneacape mini-pebble color. I’m leaning towards Aqua Cool for a more tropical vibe. Pool will be shaded in the afternoon and will be screened. I’m afraid the Aqua cool might be too dull. Does anyone have any photos or advice.

I’m also considering on adding Puerto Rico blend. Will it make a big difference? Will the water sparkle more?
Thank you!

We are about to do the same finish. Was yours the 3 bag small? Did you also add abalone? My PC said he would for free but I'm also hearing abalone may have problems long term.
What do you mean by “3 bag small”? And no, we didn’t add abalone. The beads were pushing it for cost.
