Hydrazzo French Grey in Pebble Sheen or Pebble Fina

I am having trouble selecting a Pebble Sheen finish. I originally wanted dark, but my PB convinced me to go lighter. I seem to like the Hydrazzo French Grey when I see pools online and I'm wondering what the equivalent might be in a Pebble product. I have been vacillating between Prism Blue, which reads a little too cool blue when I've seen it in another yard, but may reflect some green from my tall tree-hedge on one side, and Blue Granite, which sometimes seems quite green/teal in some photos. When I've looked online at pools on Houzz, Pinterest, and YouTube it seems the pools I like are Hydrazzo French Grey, or a marble-plaster medium grey, or some other brand of French Grey. I am wondering what Pebble finish would be closest to that (Pebble's French Grey is too light I think?). Should I also consider Pebble Fina Steel Grey?

My pool will have 14" wide bluestone coping with grass on the west side and probably stones under the tree on the other. It is 12'x31', coming off a 16' wide bluestone patio.

Also, some inspiration colors. I realize these are not all exactly the same shade - as even within the same pool, the color varies, as with pool 2 and pool 4. Cleary I am not positive about what I want, but I like the moody natural color of the first photo of 2 and 4. I like them all in different ways.

Believe it or not, I have yet to get plaster. Pool build taking forever due to PB's people just not showing up for days on end, as well some things they had to redo/fix during the process. UGH. I did select Blue Granite PebbleSheen, as the base plaster color and the pool water color (of the pool I visited and many of the photos online) appears to be closest to the glass waterline tile I used. I plan to add Shimmering Seas. Hopefully it'll look like one of those pools I posted! However, I am open to changing my selection if there is a better option.
