This is one of those things I leave to a professional because of the chemicals needed to clean stone.

You can purchase or rent a steam cleaner.
This will do a nice job without touching the surface.
Otherwise, you could try Dirtex. It's a concentrated powder/cleaner that does a fine job of breaking down all sorts of chemicals like the ones you mentioned. if neither of these work, you could have it sand blasted. But the cost and hassel of tarping everything else off may be prohibitive.
