Well, it looks like the simple procedural noise that's used for the basis
pattern is much too round and smooth.  The grains in the real granite are much
sharper and [rect]angular.

It's not clear to me exactly how to achieve that,
but I think that there should be a move away from a very smooth gradient noise,
toward something that will give a more crystalline, granular look, perhaps with
an asymmetric step to it - to make those quartz outlines in the one sample.

Could you please try:

#declare Granite = pigment {
     cells turbulence 0.425 //(0.325 is too low)
     color_map {Whatever you're using}
}

to see what I mean?
I'm interested in seeing a similar render to what you just posted, perhaps with
whatever improvements you might discover.
