I would clean it first, then look again.

It is a bit unusual to have surface graining all over the stone (usually it may be on a facet or two) and for it to be that visible (though it CAN affect performance if severe) but certainly if a report says surface graining not shown…I’d want to find out from the vendor the extent and location. Here is info on surface graining for you:

 ETA: I believe surface graining is not considered an inclusion…you can have an IF stone and still have surface graining as it is on exterior, so VS2 does not mean no surface graining.
