Rainbow stain on porcelain tile!

Hey guys! Upon cleaning my kids shower floor I noticed a Chamaeleon or rainbow stain in the middle of the shower floor, and I could not scrub it up with tile cleaner. It seems to be absorbed into the porcelain itself. This is blowing my mind! This is expensive Italian tile with full Schluter system linear drain in the shower. ...I know it's a bit much for the kids.... The only information I got out of them was that there was some cheap soap one of them was using and might have left it spilled sitting in the middle of the shower floor.... If the stain absorbed into this dense porcelain tile my guess is it can definitely come back outů What do you guys think? What kind of chemical and pull this out? See Pic below Thanks!

Wow that's a unique problem I know that bleach takes ink out of things did you try a rag soaked in bleach? I would just be careful not the beach the grout so it doesn't change color

try this

I would try an abrasives on it. Perhaps even a marble polishing powder that contains oxalic acid. It wont hurt the tile
