    what type of stain?

    Try try hand sanitizer and wipe clean. If it doesn't work use nail polish remover but be super fast about it because it can dull the shine.

    I had marble all over my kitchen (including the sink basin) while living overseas, (with three small kids and one hubby) that were forever cutting oranges or lemons or leaving acidic drinks on the counter tops. Once a week I would give my sink and counter tops an oil treatment. Just rub olive oil into the stain (and all over) leave overnight. The next morning just buff the excess oil off.

    The following information was taken from http://www.marble-institute.com/consumers/stains/

    First, spray the area of the stain with distilled water. (You don't want minerals, etc., on the marble.) Next, make a poultice out of baking soda and distilled water; mix it to the consistency of peanut butter. Apply the poultice to the stained area about1/4 to 1/2-inch thick and extend the poultice beyond the stained area by about 1-inch. U se a wood or plastic scraper to spread the poultice evenly. Cover the poultice with plastic and tape the edges to seal it. Allow the poultice to dry thoroughly, usually about 24 to 48 hours. (The drying process is what pulls the stain out of the stone and into the poultice material. ) After about 24 hours, remove the plastic and allow the poultice to dry. Remove the poultice from the stain. Rinse with distilled water, and buff dry with a soft cloth. Use the wood or plastic scraper to remove the dried poultice if necessary. Repeat the poultice application if the stain is not removed. It may take up to five applications for difficult stains.
