I did it, came out great. it was at my own house, it is brown marble countertop in the mast bath, it was real bad. I used stone scrub with a fiber pad to remove the soap, then I put on a diamond pad very fine than I used a polish compound that I bought at a supply place, then I used a stone sealer and color enhancer, then I wax it with car polish. look like brand new. did I do it right. John G. I known you do a lot of that stuff, would love to hear you opinion.

You started out correctly. Removing the soap scum. But then you should have stated with either 220 or 400 grit diamond resins and gone through 1800. Then hit it with polish powder. For marble counter tops the impregnated pads will work well also, a little more user friendly. You just need to be careful of orange peel effect in the higher grits. This would have given you a perfect polish with out the need for wax, which will need to be stripped at some point.
