There are two shades of black to choose from. & you can download both from [ link ]
They’re just 2 DLL files, one light black & one dark black. Use whichever DLL file you want by replacing the existing one in Chrome.
If you open Windows Explorer & type/paste the string (below) into the Address Bar it will take you directly to the folder with the dll file on your system (just copy & paste the string).

%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application data\Google\Chrome\Application\0.2.149.30\Themes
