[Histonet] Dark vs. Light Tissue?

Hey all,

While embedding rodent tissues I have found that some specimen within the 
SAME muscle group (such as quadriceps) appear very dark in color while 
others are very pale. I just recently started noticing this while I've been 
embedding. (I embed manually; I'm a research tech who does a lot of 
histological work).

Any insights as to why the color difference?
