Colored Gravel Question

This is kind of a dumb post, but I was just wondering how many of you find gravel mixed in with yours that isn't the same as your normal gravel's color. I have a mix of black and white gravel, but I keep finding bright blue pebbles in my 75 gallon while I'm doing PWC. I've already removed quite a few blue pebbles, but more keeps popping up! I know they don't come with new fish because I never dump fish store water in my tank.

Yeah, I had a few colored bits in my natural colored gravel. I assume its all made in the same place and a few pieces get stuck in the packing machine or somewhere else.

I'm still pulling blue gravel out of my sand. About a year ago JChillin send me some plants that had rocks stuck in the roots. Not many, but maybe a dozen. Every once in a while I'll find a rock from his tank.

At least I know I'm not the only one here. I'm not complaining about it, I just find it odd that they keep popping up. For the longest time I will only see black and white rocks, then out of the blue (not pun intended) I'll find a blue one. It's just kind of weird.

I find that to be pretty funny for some reason.
