    Wet the marble or put some vegetable oil on, it should bring the color and design out. Years ago people were coating damaged marbles with clear epoxy to cover damage and selling them as mint. The epoxy would eventually discolor or fall off

    Thrift stores

    I don't donate to goodwill they keep to much of the money. I support the salvation army almost all of the money is spent locally.
