Quick question -- cleaning antique marble lamps

Greetings folks,

There are two antique marble lamps I need to clean / restore. I belive that at one point the client stated they were translucent and you could see the light through them.
Now one is opaque white color and the other is see through amber colored? Any thoughts on what caused this and how to fix?
Pics attached. Thanks.

Were they the same color as each other to begin with? Have you looked into any commercial marble cleaner such as stonespecific ?

Marble being a material that is reactive to chemicals must be cleaned with specific chemicals that are made to maintain the shine of marble. Converting into totally different shades is making it difficult to detect the reason for such effects.
