Repair rough spot ("chip") in granite countertop

We have a variegated red/orange/gray/black granite countertop. While cleaning it, I notice a couple of small (dime size) very shallow depressions with a rough surface. I'm not sure if it is due to a "chip" or if it is a natural defect -- either way it disturbs the smooth polished surface.
Neither my wife or I are aware of how it happened but it probably was damaged by the previous homeowner or came that way.
I know that you can pay an installer big $$$$ to fix it, but I am looking for a DIY approach. In fact, the chips are not bad enough to be worth the multiple hundreds of dollars that I believe a pro will charge to come to my house.
Some people have recommended an "acrylic" patch kit that is UV cured and then polished. One example is "ProCaliber Products Granite & Marble Acrylic Pro Repair Kit - Clear LCA Paste" -- (See http://www.acrylicrepair.com/repair-kits/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id 9)
It seems like the "pros" use epoxy and granite dust but I haven't found a kit online.
- Any experiences or recommendations in DIY repair of such chips and defects in granite countertops? - Are there any DIY kits or methods that truly give professional-like results that make the patch (almost) invisible?
Thanks

If real granite, I'm told, there is nothing you can do. But, I suspect your's is acrylic containing granite chips and acrylic repair should work but color match may be difficult.

That does it. I'm getting a laminate for the new kitchen.
