Is it another natural stone or is it perhap duPont's "Corian"?

If it is the latter, try a non-metal scouring pad (one used to be
supplied with Corian fixtures).  Otherwise, the instructions were to
use fine sandpaper carefully.

Try making a paste of baking soda and warm water.  Lay a hot, wet
cloth on the stain for a few seconds then remove and rub the paste
into the stain with a toothbrush.  Leave the paste on (thick!) for a
couple of hours then scrub again with toothbrush and hot water and
rinse clean. If the stain is still there, wet a paper towel with
alcohol and leave on the stain for a few minutes and try another quick
scrub with the paste.
