When repairing chipped marble, ensure that the area has been cleaned thouroughly and dried with a very absorbent fabirc.  Something similar to acetone is strong enough to clean the surface, while not degrading the marble.
Next, adding a poly-epoxide or similar bonding material, place a small amount on the bottom of the chip and place it back into the divet.  Apply pressure for a few minutes to ensure that it's firmly in place and hold tightly.  Once secured, be sure to whipe away and epoxy or glue that has been left behind.
