I am a conservator presently working on some indoor marble
sculptures with discolouration resembling iron stains.  However, I
found out that the discoloured rounded patches contain organic
materials, which could be caused by some kind of microbiological
activity.  Has anyone come across a similar problem?  Could you let
me know about your findings and possible treatments?
