Stained NY Bluestone

I have a beautiful new NY bluestone patio mortared with black polymeric sand. We had polymeric haze, which we cleaned with vinegar. Now, about 2 weeks after the patio was put in, some stones have a darker stain around the edges, which I've seen described on the web as 'picture framing'. Only some of the stones have this stain. Does anyone know how to clean this? Many thanks!

Re: Stained NY Bluestone

Some reading on the web indicated that ammonia was good on oil stains.

I think that the black stain is probably based along those same lines of formulation.
