Why is the moon greyish black?

There are plenty of minerals with interesting coloursWasn't sure if this should be put here or in off-topic since it's more of a science question (though meant seriously) than an actual discussion. Feel free to correct me.
Anyway, yeah. Topic title & description says it all. In pictures of moon landings as well as from the surface here, the moon is entirely monochrome. Is it just that the lightest minerals happen to be these boring colours?
