I have used something I suspect is similar to repair fiberglass chips in tubs and showers, basically it's Bondo that you add colorant to to match whatever you're filling.

Working with stone, you also have to sand and polish the repair to blend it in, not a huge big deal, but do some research on how to polish stone so you know what you will need and what you're getting into before you start. What you DO NOT want to do is make the damage worse. If you are not comfortable doing the repair yourself or have doubts about your ability to get the finish you desire, step back and hire a stone pro to do it for you, it will be money well spent and a heck of a lot cheaper than repairing damage you made worse.
