If you aren't going for a high-polish then you may get away with dry sanding. Wet sanding may be preferable but that creates a whole new set of hassles.

Does anything go down after the sealer?
There is more than one way to do it but I always use a sealer and finish combination, two different products. The sealer should last forever and the finish is considered a sacrificial coating and can be renewed from time to time. The products I use are for commercial installations. I can send you the product names to see if they are available in your neck of the woods.

Do we know what part of the country you are in?

Thanks that would be great!

Ibiza, the Balearic Islands. Spain

I take it there are matt finishers?

There is a so called marble guru on the island who does most of the instalations on the island!
I'll invite him over to give me a quote and pick his brains a bit. :-)
