Abstract: We present overview of solutions of contraction equations for all four fine group gradings of Lie algebra sl(3,C). We show the role of symmetry groups of these gradings in the process of solving contraction equations and identification of results. We focus on so called Gell-Mann grading, identify corresponding solutions with Lie algebras and compare these Lie algebras with results of graded contraction from Pauli and Cartan grading of sl(3,C).
