No, they aren't exactly alike. After all, they are a naturally occurring stone. They are generally consistent within the producer's range, and they work well.

I have one that is striated along its length, with one side distinctly softer than the other side. That's odd, and I like the duality because I use that stone between a fine India and a hard Arkansas.

Every soft Arkansas I've used has been a good stone.
